Welcome to Pontianak City

As a holiday destination, the city of Pontianak offers visitors multi-dimensional experiences. A range of important historical and cultural tourist destinations, special interest sites, and sight seeing tours will give a memorable experience to all visitors.

Attracting holiday makers worldwide are hospitable ethnic groups, art and culture, and spectacular phenomena. Twice a year, the spectacular Vernal Equinox (March 21st – 23rd) and the Autumnal Equinox (September 21st – 23rd) make the Equatorial Monument in Pontianak one of the most popular places on earth to witness this wonder of nature.
The city prides itself on its art and cultural life, superbly equipped to take advantage of its surrounding. At night, it lights up with nightclubs, cafes, bars, and seafood restaurants. Its facilities include an international airport and seaport and a stunning line up of malls, supermarkets, luxury and mid-range hotels and restaurants.
Being directly on Borneo’s longest river, Pontianak is a waterfront city on the confluence of the Kapuas and Landak rivers. City ferries and bridges link the city centre with the riverside suburbs of Siantan and Kampung Beting, where charming interlinked wooden walkways provide a unique way of getting round and seeing the oldest part of the city.

Be a part of it!
