The provincial capital of Sulawesi, and its largest city, Makassar is a surprisingly nice place to visit. Chinatown is atmospheric and reminiscent of New Orleans' French Quarter, with a decaying colonial charm; and the seafood warungs here are stocked with delicious and surprisingly cheap fresh fish. It's also the island's commercial capital, and it can be a fascinating experience to wander through any of the countless malls and observe the local form that global commercial culture has taken.

The city of Makassar is considered the largest city in and the gateway to the Eastern part of Indonesia. The area is famous for its sailors ancestors who travelled the world in Bugis schooners or Phinisi. The area is also famous for its coffee, Toraja Coffee, and its hand woven silk. Makassar is often visited for those who intend to go to Toraja or diving site, wakatobi island. The local dishes, mainly seafood and coto, among many others are simply delicious! (and spicy)
