Last New Year's holiday, i got invited to my cousin's wedding in Makassar. Makassar is one of metropolitan cities in Idonesia, it's a capital city of South Sulawesi. And honestly it was the first time i could go back to my hometown after 16 years living in Jakarta. I was there just for a few days, maybe about a week, i didn't have time to explore all Makassar because we were so busy of the wedding. I just visited some places near the wedding arena that really iconic in Makassar. But i surely had a great time there!
The first place i could visit was Pantai Losari. It is an esplanade, a peninsula, and a beach indeed (pantai means beach in Indonesia). There, you can see a famous floating mosque too, Masjid Amirul Mukminin. Also you can try so many variations of fresh seafood and other authentic Makassar dishes that sold by food stalls around, but sadly i didn't have enough time to eat. However if you come visit Makassar, you can't miss this place.
I strolled around Pantai Losari, breathed some sea air, enjoyed the waving palm trees, and the best moment was enjoying the sunset in the beach pavilion. It is the best place to watch the sun goes down in Makassar. I definitely should go back there again next time.
