Travel Tips for visiting Semarang

Semarang is a city in Indonesia located on the north coast of the island of Java, in the Pasisir region. It's the capital city of the province in Central Java. It's an ancient port city with a multicultural rich history and the fifth largest metropolis in Indonesia.
Semarang became a warehouse for spices, also a busy port for trade and passenger transport when travel was mainly by sea. 

Thanks to its former cargo port and the international commerce, the city has colourful multiculturalism cultures: Chinese, Indian, Arab and European... You can stroll through the different districts that represent each culture perfectly.

The most famous monument here is the Koepelkerk, a Phanteon-style church, known locally as Gereja Blenduk, a Dutch church with a copper dome dating from 1753.
But you can visit and see others beautiful places as temples in the chinese district or the Blenduk church inspired by the St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City.
