Traveljunkieindonesia.com – Eeeeep!! I spent just a few days in Makassar. The city is frenetic and crazy but has an incredible energy.

It’s a magical place and I hope to visit again sometime soon. I like to do something a little different for my life.

Dian Onno and I went to do a wild and crazy bentor or becak motor (motorcycle rickshaw) ride.  We were again cool, calm and excited.

A bentor ride is a wonderful way to see Makassar and get away from the city—it’s so busy it almost vibrates.

Well… I described it as a SENSATIONAL experience! Bloody brilliant!

It was one of the best experiences I ever had, ranked alongside swimming with whale sharks! Best. Present. Ever. So good, I would do it AGAIN!

I would definitely recommended it. It’s great for anyone, couples and families, young or old.
