Floating Market Banjarmasin

The rivers of Banjarmasin have always played an important role throughout the history of South Kalimantan’s capital. Although shopping malls and international brands are increasingly leaving their mark on the Indonesian city, the traditional trade on the rivers is still kept alive. Every morning at sunrise farmers from the surrounding areas load fruits, fish, vergetables and spices onto their boats for trade. One of the most colourful meeting points is the Lok Baitan Floating Market located on the Barito River.
