Semarang is a city on the north coast of the island of Java, Indonesia. It is the capital of the province of Central Java. It has an area of 373.67 kmē and a population of approximately 1.5 million people, making it the Indonesia's fifth largest city. Semarang is located at 6°58′S, 110°25′E. A major port during the Dutch colonial era, and still an important port today, the city is known in Indonesia for its large ethnically Chinese population. The name of the city, Semarang, may have originated from the concatenation of the words "asem" (tamarind) and "arang" (rare). Another version is that Semarang is originated from Chinese word Sam Po Lang (San Bao Loong), meaning "the city of Sam Po" (Admiral Zheng He).

Semarang is located on the northern coast of Java. The northern part of the city is built on the coastal plain while the southern parts, known as Candi Lama and Candi Baru, are on higher ground. Two rivers run through the city, one on the east side and one through the west side, essentially dividing the city into thirds.

The population of Semarang is predominantly Javanese, though with smaller numbers of people from many regions in Indonesia. The city is known for its large ethnically Chinese population. The main languages spoken are Indonesian and Javanese.

As a result of its large ethnically Chinese population, the city boasts several Chinese temples. These include Sam Poo Kong (Gedung Batu), built in honour of the Chinese Great Admiral Zheng He who visited the area in 1405, and Tay Kak Sie Temple. Blenduk Church, a 1753 Protestant church built by the Dutch, is located in the old town (called "Oudstad"). Tugu Muda (Youth Monument), a monument to heroes of Indonesia's independence struggle, is located in front of Gedung Lawang Sewu and Semarang Cathedral, at the end of Jalan Pemuda, one of the city's major shopping streets.

IMO Masalah utama lokasi Bandara A.Yani sebenarnya bukan krn kedekatan-nya dengan pusat kota Semarang tetapi justru "kedekatannya dengan pantai laut Jawa" yg jadi problem besar seperti luapan rob bbrp hari kemaren yg sangat mengganggu
Thanks Ampelio

Mudah2an rob di Bandara A.Yani itu bisa mendorong bandara dipindahkan ke lokasi baru

Gw pernah lihat pesawat melintas di atas menaranya pas gw berada di sana tapi batere kamera habis maka nggak bisa memotret

Judul thread ini "SEMARANG : A HARMONIOUS BLENDING OF CULTURES" sbenarnya sangat pas dengan sejarah dan karakter Kota Semarang sesungguhnya dan IMO memiliki nilai jual lebih tinggi daripada slogan "Semarang Pesona Asia" ...what a govt......

Semarang Nice...bozhart, pics-nya
sayang-nya sih kok sering bgd banjir di daerah pesisir-nyasampai ada lagu semarang kaline banjir, sepertinya perluasan kota semarang lebih pas ke daerah kabupatennya seperti ungaran yang sejuk dan jarang banjir

APIK TENAN, dobel jempol kanggo Mas Bozhart.

Sam Poo Kong is Majestic; Gereja blenduk truly classic; Vihara Mahavira looks more like an apartment or office tower (if you cut off the crown) what occupies this 7 floor building? Puri Agung and Pagoda Avalokitesvara is spechless...

Masjid Agung looks grand but something weird about the architecture

Downtown Semarang is really neat 'n nice..... more more picture please

Kalau masalah sering banjir, rasanya bukan cuma penyakit Semarang saja, bahkan Jakarta sekarang sudah lebih parah daripada Semarang.

Semarang memang nomor 5. The fifth largest city in Indonesia.

but you know, semarang now is better than before regarding the floods though...i seldom sees simpanglima drowned anymore, the drainase is better now. Even when Banjirkanal river was overload 3 weeks ago, the surrounding area is still flood-free.

but the airport and railway station werent! those places got flooded just a week ago....

cheers

Thanks guys

@ Ampelio. Waktu mau bikin thread part 2 ini, gw mikir2 pakai judul "Semarang Kota Lumpia" atau tidak hehehe lalu kuputuskan tetap pakai "Semarang: A Harmonious Blending of Cultures" sebab lebih keren Judul ini ide encon? Atau dari link ini? http://www.greatindonesia.com/articl...-Blending.html

@ TripJava. Banjir itu biasanya ada di daerah dekat pantai sebab di sana memang sering ada rob (air laut masuk ke daratan) spt Stasiun KA Tawang, daerah Kaligawe dsb apalagi di musim hujan ini. Waktu Tahun Baru Imlek kemarin, gw di Semarang selama 2 minggu hujan terus tetapi pusat Semarang sama sekali tidak banjir termasuk Simpang Lima, Kota Lama, Pecinan dsb. Betul spt kata David-80 itu.

@ Cah Smg. Vihara Mahavira itu gw nggak tahu ada berapa lantai tepatnya sebab nggak boleh sembarangan masuk di sana. Tempat itu selain tempat ibadah, juga tempat tinggal. Info lain klik ini http://www.mahavira.info/Cabang/Semarang/semarang.htm
