Description

Semarang is a bustling city of about a million and a half residents, and although the focus of a lot of the action here is on everyday business life, the city does still have a solid tourist appeal. Visitors here will face a bit of a conundrum when touring this expansive and bustling city. The weather is very much hot and humid, making it a bit of a sweaty experience for most going at it by foot. ... read more
This can be endured more comfortably by wearing shorts and tee shirts, but this is itself where the problem arises. See, most all of the major attractions are temples, and be they Buddhist or Muslim, a more appropriate dress code (particularly one requiring long pants) is required to gain entry. As you can see, it's a tough decision to choose between comfort and admission, so consider bringing a pair of pants to throw over your shorts if you are worried about keeping cool. You'll want to figure something out, since the wealth of attractions range from spectacular temples like the Sam Po Kong Temple, to amazing examples of Dutch Colonial architecture like Lawang Sewu. A truly enlightening incite into a unique culture, a visit to Semarang's sweltering streets is more than worth having to change cloths for.
