Postcards From Pangkalan Bun– I have some pretty cool postcards to share! City tour in Pangkalan Bun. And I’m SO GOING!

If Kalimantan ran a ‘Tidy Towns’ contest Pangkalan Bun would leave the opposition in its dust, which it would have to import because it has none of its own. Largely used as a stopover en route to Tanjung Puting National Park, this is a surprisingly pleasant spot to hang the hat for a couple of days.

Wide, ordered roads lined with processions of greenery, attractive residences and warm and friendly locals create a convivial and appealing atmosphere. There’s also a neat waterfront market punctuated by gemshops and tidy warungs.

Hopefully, one day, I will be able to visit again.

A big thank you to Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy Republic of Indonesia,, and the others for the excellent trip.

Happy Green Travels!
