Pontianak city info
Pontianak is the capital of the Indonesian province of West Kalimantan, on the island of Borneo. Situated right on the equator, Pontianak lies astride the confluence of Sungai Landak and Sungai Kapuas. The city is mostly populated by ethnic Chinese, Dayak, and Malay as well as significant number of minorities such as Bugis and Javanese.
The word pontianak — probably from bunting anak, "pregnant with child" — means the undead vampire of a woman who died while during childbirth. Disguised as a beautiful woman, the pontianak goes around murdering unwary men, harming pregnant woman and eating babies, but they can be controlled by plunging a nail into a hole in the back of their neck.
The city itself sprawls over a vast area, with bus terminals and ramshackle suburbs creating mini-communities. The river splits Pontianak in two and a boat ride late in the afternoon will often reveal locals bathing. Like Banjarmasin it really needs to be seen from the canals and riverside boardwalks. Charter a boat or walk over the Kapuas bridge from Jl Gajah Mada for a sweeping view of the river and brilliant orange sunsets.Besides the nearby rainforest and beaches, Pontianak is good to spend some time in, especially if you have been on a long trekking tour and are in need of some normality and pampering. There are many hotels, hawker stalls, shops and bars. One distinction of Pontianak is that it sits on the equator and the Equatorial Obelisk (Tugu Khatulistiwa) represents this. The monument is a few kilometers outside town and has plenty of information about the zero degree point along with food stalls and souvenir shops. Pontianak Zoo (Kebun Binatang Pontianak) is also worth a look. The zoo is situated on Jalan Adi Sucipto and features a decent range of animals from all over Indonesia. It is a fun gateway town to the interior of West Kalimantan and its nearby beaches, and has many bars and shops.
