Semarang is not known as a city with many popular tourist attraction. They do have few, like this one, an old town complex with Dutch heritage buildings. But current city administration has been working hard to boost Semarang image by making Semarang a much cleaner city, and introducing additional attractions for tourists.
At the Old Town, they developed Taman Srigunting, which serves as free public space for those who wants to take picture of the most famous building in the complex: Gereja Blenduk (Church GBI Immanuel).
Next to the park, there are antiques shops which sell many interesting antiques from Dutch and post Independence era. Finally, we also found out an excellent coffee shop, a rejuvenated Spiegel Coffee place, which I’ll share in my next post. Great job, Semarang!!
