Places of Interest
Growing in popularity as an international tourist destination, the seaport city of Balikpapan is located on the eastern coast of Borneo Island beside an inlet of the Makassar Strait. Balikpapan is regarded as the gateway to East Kalimantan Province – one of the country’s richest provinces that stands out for its plentiful natural resources, such as timber, coal, sapphires and diamonds, as well oil and petroleum products. Being a major exporter of natural resources, Balikpapan is sometimes referred to as the ‘Oil City.’ The region is also lauded for its stunning natural scenery that includes picturesque beaches, mountains and virgin forests filled with a rich variety of wildlife.
Balikpapan has an international airport, while its Semayang seaport provides commercial ferries to many destinations in Indonesia, including Surabaya, Makassar, Jakarta, ParePare and Manado. Prior to the oil boom of the early 1900s, Balikpapan was an isolated “Bugis” fishing village. Balikpapan's name (balik meaning 'behind' and papan meaning 'plank') comes from a folk story wherein a local king floated his newborn daughter on the sea to protect her from his enemies. The baby was tied behind some planks and was discovered by a fisherman.
With the only oil refinery in the region, Balikpapan emerged as a revitalised centre of petroleum production. The town is home to several oil companies and caters to the leisure needs of oil workers with several bars and shopping facilities. With plenty of shops and dining options, Plaza and Balikpapan Super Block are the main hangouts in town. There is also the “Kebun Sayur” Traditional Market Centre for those interested in seeking out handicrafts, stones, batiks and rattan products.
As the main gateway to East Kalimantan, Balikpapan enables you to explore the region's unspoiled forests, which are home to rare and varied flora and fauna, from rattan vines and black orchids, to orangutans and honey bears. Balikpapan has a tropicalrainforestclimate, although the city does not have significantly wetter or drier periods of the year and average temperatures are nearly identical throughout the course of the year, averaging roughly 27 degrees Celsius.
From Balikpapan visitors have easy access to some of East Kalimantan’s top attractions, including: Berau, famed for its Batiwakkal Museum and Mesjid Agung Baitul Hikmah; Muara Muntai with Mahakam Lake at its centre; and Samarinda, the capital of the province.
