Introducing Pontianak

Standing astride the equator, Pontianak is a gateway to all points of the compass: Putussibau (east), Singkawang (north), Sukadana (south) and Natuna (west). Commerce keeps things buzzing, but the city is otherwise a grey jumble, brightened only by some inexpensive luxury hotels and lukewarm sights.
