Welcome to the Makassar cruise port guide. Makassar or formerly known as Ujung Padang until the president changed it again in the 90’s. Both names are still being used today. Makassar is the a large town on the island of Sulawesi. This could be the most unusual island you can come across in Indonesia. Burial rituals, food and language here are all different compared to other islands. Makassar lies all the way in the southern part of the island. Here we find a rich history of cultures that all fought for the power and monopoly in the area. We also find a beautiful city that is full of possibilities. Tour around by trishaw or taxi to get a feel for the place.
