Left luggage at Makassar airport

by cgf

could it be possible to leave there a luggage for a week?

Re: Left luggage at Makassar airport

Hi,

Not sure about that. But why don't you get in contact with a great guy called Dodo who works for a govt dept but also does some guiding and will help you. I had been in contact with him for 2 yrs and finally met him in November last year and stayed at his place- he has a couple of rooms for travellers.
His name is Dodo the penman of Sulawesi and his email address is donow77@yahoo.com
Here is the link to a little website one of his satisfied travellers made for him.

A search on Lonely Planet Thorn tree reveals all the info' written about Dodo.
Please skip the first one.

Dodo..
Thanks, I heard about him, he has a lot of pens... a great gift could be to take to him a value pen. I know he has 2 rooms with air con... and he would be glad to have people there, not for money, more for friendness.
:-( I have not to go to Makassar, I just look for a left luggage as I want to go to Torajaland from airport.
Anyway I probably contact him to know if he knows about my reequest, this is te first topic about Makassar (I just wonder why)

Not sure why no one asks questions about Makassar- travellers seem to tend towards Lonely Planet Thorn Tree.
Good to know that you know about Dodo- the treasure of South Sulawesi.

Hi, Have just noticed your posting. It isn't possible to leave your luggage at the airport they don't have that facility. If you get totally stuck I have offices in Makassar, and providing we can check your luggage, then you are welcome to keep it there, we can arrange to meet you at the airport, if you are leaving from there on the next step of your journey. You must also check your luggage when you collect it.

Hope you have a great time in Indonesia whatever you do.

Thanks, you're very kind.
I've already managed with the hotel where I will stay the night before and the night after of my return filght to/from Makassar.
I believe this is the best way so my wife and I will have cabin luggage only (we are going to Makassar for three days and we don't need so much).

... so much luggage

Travel Tips for Makassar

Refreshing Temperature

by RoyJava

Visiting the Bantimurung Waterfalls is so great, while the falling water brings about a very pleasing temperature. When not that crowded it is a wonderful stay in the day for a picnic.

BANTIMURUNG WATERFALL May the kali behind be some dangerous, a jump down-wards the waterfall completes your perfect day, and ... the rocks are not that "licin" (slippery), though take care! A tremendous change after hotty hot Ujung Pandang!
Thanks Bantimurung.

Bantimurung Waterfalls

A useful list before visiting Makassar

by radin

Tourist better bring an umbrella or a hat and sun block cream to avoid them from the heat of sun and rain that sometimes came unpredictable People that want visit the city of Makassar better use a polite casual wear, like T-shirt and sport shirt, but for the ladies better not wear Tank-top or Short Pants cause that clothing is not polite for Indonesian people. That clothing became important due to the this city weather condition that extremly hot ( 32-33 C in day time) Mosquito reppelent is an important things that tourist should bring when visiting tropical city in Indonesia like Makassar. There are several Indonesian brand mosquito reppelent that tourist can buy in Makassar or other part in Indonesia, such as Sari Puspa and Autan. The price are between Rp 2.000 to 2.500 per sachet.

Exotic Mountain along way to Tana Toraja

by radin

Exotic Mountain or Gunung Nona (In Indonesian language) or Buntu Kabobong (in Toraja Traditional Language) that has mean "The Mount Of Girl". There is a myth that this mountain was made by God curse. That happen when God know there was a king in Sulawesi that want to married his own daughter, so the king and her daughter was cursed into a mountain.
This mount is located in Enrekang district that will pass by everyone that want to visit Tana Toraja district, but many tourist always missed this great scenery because they prefer to go to Tana Toraja district at night.
Visitors that want to see the scenery also can take a rest in a hotel and cafe that build directly in the front of the mount, so people can enjoy that beautiful scenery while drink a cup of tea or coffe before continuing journey to Tana Toraja.

South of Makassar, boatbuilding and snorkeling

by global_explorer

Tana Beru is maybe the most traditional boatbuildingvillage in the area south of Makassar. This region is dry and not so fertile as the areas further north. Therefore the locals have turned to the sea. Fishing, boatbuilding and saltmaking are the major industries of the area. Tana Beru lies on the road between Makassar and Bira, covered in the next paragraph. In order to get there, take kijang or bemo to Bulukumba from terminal Malenkeri and onward bemo heading for Bira. In Tana Beru there is a long line of small shipyards along the sandy beach. Here bugisschooners of all sizes are buildt. Sometimes as mutch of 50 can be under construction at the same time, ranging from almost complete, to just started. You will see the hole process. Whats facinating is that traditional tecniques are still in use. Powertools are in use, but haven’t replaced the old tools. Wooden plugs are still prefered, i could count on one hand the number of metalnails shining in the sun along the entire beach. The wooden parts are still bendt into shape using steam and heat. Traditional beliefs in spirits are one reason for the survival of the old way of boatbuilding, but it is likely to disappear relatively soon due to higher demands of effiency and the introduction of engines. It was many rituals connected to the construction of a boat. Most are rare nowdays, but the keelseremony sometimes still take place. The keel are made up of several parts, each are given names associated to the “secret parts of the human bodies”. Those parts are fused together and declared to be married. Then the keel are left alone overnight to enjoy the weddingnight. For the occation it has been made a weddingcacke made of rice, cockonut and sugar.
The original sealaunching seremony has luckily been abandoned. It included pulling the boat over seven first time pregnant women to ensure the boats luck. For the ladies, it would be no luck

Central Market

by RoyJava

The markets of Ujung Pandang are renowned for their delicacies of the sea, and fruits are a plentiful delicacy, too. Bananas always are available, find different types of bananas common on the market. I love the pisang susu/ambon (the smallest sweet baby-banana) and the banana-milkshake. Try the fresh-baked bananas (pisang goreng) and the kue pisang (a delicious banana-pudding named "Nogosari" at Java). The Central Market (Pasar Pusat) in Ujung Pandang is a feast for the eyes ...
