Paotere Harbour

Paotere Harbour, Makassar Overview

The Paotere Harbour is the oldest harbour in the country, and it used to be a major trading hub in its heyday. It is filled with colourful ships, and tourists can take a ship ride for less than USD 5. It is a beautiful coast to view from a ship, and these ships are filled with friendly locals. A nearby fish market offers all kinds of freshly-caught fish and adds to the charm of Makassar's quaint sea-port.

The harbour is bustling during the day with dock-workers loading and unloading cargo from the schooners moored at the pier. Standing since the 14th century, Paotere Harbour is always abuzz with activity and is a great way to spend an evening.
