Who needs to travel to the jungle to watch the orangutans? The antics of young children are much more entertaining!
My quiet City Tour begins with a visit to Mesjid Raya Sabilal Muhtadin, a massive mosque that my guidebook describes as “resembling a landed spaceship.”
We continue to Soetji Nurani, a Chinese temple where we encounter a group of young girls in local costume.
We stop at the obligatory batik shop where I choose a perfectly outrageous cotton shirt.
For the main attraction, I board a small motorboat for a Canal Tour.
