Makassar(UP) airport transit stop details.Since this comes up often and I transit as well, here are the details. As usual it seems a mess with taxi drivers touting but the area is as orderly as downtown underneath. There are taxis waiting outside the airport toll gates at the crossroads also and bemos 3,000R of course.
Frequent airport Damri buses(right out of arrivals and down a ramp) 20,000R to the center of town and free buses to the airport toll gate(unwalkable) run from 5 am till 11 pm. This free bus to the main road waits in the airport car park not where it is sign posted.The airport gate its self has a continuous road at right angles north south and this is the main road out of Makassar north. A road left diagonal in front is the toll way into town and not so much used.
Withing a kilometer of the gate are many warungs and rumah makans, travel agents and convenience stores that are very new. There is no alcohol as it is an Islam area.
Turning left(south) opposite side on this main road in 100 meters is the Pegninapan Bayu. On a dirt lane on the left side of this south road also(actually the non toll way to the city centre) after 20 meters has simple losmen and university rooms from 100,000R.
Turning right towards, that is north, is the Darma Nusaantara Hotel, new with double a/c rooms from 210,000R including taxes after about 700 meters. A bit further opposite is the Transit Hotel at 250,000R.
The best time to catch big buses to all destinations north, which have window signs of their destinations, is just around dark at the gates on the main road. They are looking for you too and are mostly half empty.
Hope this helps and insist as always if contradicted as this information is current and gratis.
And let’s get this clear VIP rooms are more expensive than I have quoted but are available at the Nusaantara Hotel.
That I am neither touting business, nor a troll as suggested on other posts I have submitted on this branch.
