    Taman Alun Kapuas: Night market

    by theo1006 Written Nov 21, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Want to see how the locals relax at dusk after a hot day? Come to the night market at Taman Alun Kapuas, a small park on the left bank of Kapuas River next to the ferry pier. During the day it is empty, but by 5pm stalls and chairs appear from nowhere. They build up not just a food court, but a regular market, including a children's playgroundA.
    We were staying at the adjacent Grand Hotel Kartika and were not very hungry. So we had a gado-gado from one of the stalls and a drink on a boat moored there for the purpose. It was October, rainy season, which did not seem to deter anyone setting up his business. But when later it started to pour, many left early.

    Warung Dangau and Permata Pub&Bar: Have fun with F1-mania

    by ukirsari Written Oct 9, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Because Singkawang is a small town, seems doesn`t have a cozy place for a nightlife. But we can make it by ourselves to have fun. Like this ... we`re relaxing at Warung Dangau. Even it`s a restaurant, we can have fun here. Singing and drink many types of mocktails. Then go to the Pub which located at opposite of this restaurant for ... seeing F1 race of Interlagos, Brazil! Yeah!

    Dress Code: Casual. Like capri pants with t-shirt and sandals or sneakers.
    Here I took picture with (left to the right); Johnny Pranata (technical manager of JUB motocross team), Henry Yusuf `Along` (crosser Grade A from JUB), Aep Dadang Supriyatna `Bo-ep` (also crosser Grade A from JUB), me and Lala (a reporter from Radio of Republic Indonesia).
