1.1. Sea Port

1.1.1.     Benoa Port

The ideal port of call for Bali-bound cruise passengers, Benoa Port is located on the east coast of southern Bali. The cruise terminal welcomes visitors with Balinese dance performances and numerous demonstrations of local art forms. Southern Bali is immediately accessible from the port via taxi, as Nusa Dua and Denpasar are less than an hour’s drive away.

1.1.2.     Tanjung Mas Port

The city of Semarang on the north coast of Java also hosts one of the country’s major ports, Tanjung Emas (Tanjung Mas), where both modern ships and traditional phinisi sailing ships do business. Immediately upon disembarkation, travelers will discover Semarang’s Dutch and Chinese influences in the old buildings surrounding the wharf. Further beyond, Tanjung Emas arrivals will find Central Java’s attractions (Borobudur and Prambanan among them) within easy access.

1.1.3.     Tanjung Priuk Port

Jakarta’s main port is Indonesia’s busiest, with 20 terminals handling both cargo and passenger loads, and comprehensive intermodal facilities that connect incoming passengers with the rest of the country. From Tanjung Priok, travelers get instant access to Indonesia’s capital and biggest metropolis, too: Fatahillah Square is located less than 20 minutes’ drive away, for starters.
