Also known as Ujung Pandang, the gritty metropolis of Makassar is one of Indonesia's primary ports and the largest city on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia. Makassar is a seething maelstrom of commerce and shipping, with a polyglot population of Makassarese, Bugis and Chinese residents. But as the city has few sights, and the tropical heat and pollution are unremitting, few travellers stay more than a night or two.
Makassar enjoys a central location in the Indonesian archipelago and is the Indonesia’s busy air hub, connecting Sumatra, Java, Bali and Kalimantan in the west with Sulawesi, the Moluccas and Papua in the east.
