Banjarmasin

Getting around

Public transport

It is possible to hire a boat operator to navigate the canals near Jl Hasanuddin bridge. Expect to pay 20,000Rp to 25,000Rp per hour without a guide.

Onshore, the area around Pasar Baru is small, central and easy to walk around. Taxis are 400,000Rp a day or 50,000Rp per hour, with a minimum of two hours. There are also plenty of becak, ojek and bajaj (three-wheeled motorised taxis). A bajaj from the city centre to Banjar Raya pier is around 10,000Rp; by ojek it costs about 10,000Rp.

The yellow minibuses are called taxi kota and they go to various parts of town, including the Km 6 terminal. The standard fare is 2000Rp. The taxi kota terminal is on Jl Pangeran Antasari near the night market, just east of the city centre.
