PONTIANAK, Kalimantan Barat



Salam semua,

Ini merupakan entry awal berkisar kepada rancangan saya utk jalan2 ke Pontianak Kalimantan. Banyak laman web telah dibuka utk mendapatkan pelbagai info berkaitan selain menelefon pelbagai jabatan berkaitan dgn pelbagai isu dan keadaan semasa di sana. Ia sebagai persediaan peribadi sebelum bertolak ke sana.

Walaupun ia sekadar rancangan, namun rasa2nya dah semakin hampir utk dilalui. Rancangan utk pergi SOLO bagi meninjau perjalanan lagi di masa depan. Gambar2 serta pelbagai hotel juga sudah di servey, selain tourist spot. Nampak ok dan mudah2an dapat dilaksanakan jua kelak.

Jika melihat kepada post yang pernah ke sana; di tahun2 awal, ramai yang masih memberi input negatif namun sejak akhir2 ini pembaharuan dah semakin bertapak di kota tersebut. Ia termasuk jalan2 dan pusat2 pelancongan. Justeru terasa lega bila memikirkan semua itu.

So tunggu saja entry seterusnya. Sama ada berjaya atau tidak, itu belakang kira. :)



Lagi info:

By bus

Bus trip to Pontianak can be arranged from Kuching in neighboring Malaysia. A trip from Kuching to Pontianak or vice versa will spend at least 8 hours which will pass the border area of Entikong. Some of the bus providers serving this route are Damri, SJS and Biramas (www.mybus.com.my). The fares for the trip ranges from RM45 to RM75.

By car

Pontianak can be reached by car from Kuching in 6-8 hours, although the road is not in very good shape.

Stay safe

Pickpockets and motorcycle thefts are quite common in town. Exercise necessary caution even when being in a shopping mall. Be careful when travelling in a public bus (called oplet) as somebody could threaten you with a knife to hand over your valuables.

See

  • Kebun Binatang Pontianak (Pontianak Zoo), Jl. Adi Sucipto, a reconditioned zoo with a reasonable variety of animals from the jungles of Borneo and from some parts of Indonesia. Some of the collection, including some orangutans, were said to had been freed from illegal ownership by an Italian lumber mill owner.
  • Tugu Khatulistiwa (Equatorial Obelisk), built directly under the 0 degrees equator line. It is only 11km from the city center and is comparably easy and fast reachable by public buses (IDR2,000). There you can learn lots of interesting facts about the equator and to see how unique is Pontianak, one of the few cities in the world situated exactly on the equator line. There are friendly English speaking staff and sĐľuvenir shop, actually maybe the only one in Pontianak.
