“A giant ant statue building”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Nothing special. I just take a quick glimpse outside of the building. There is nothing attractive to see. This is quite similar to the giant octopus building in Bandung.

“A Taste of 19th Century Java”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

Semarang has one of Indonesia's finest colonial-era old towns. Indonesian film makers have been using it as a backdrop for period films for many years. It was featured extensively in the film "Jie", for example, about a doomed young political activist in 1960s Java. Tourists have been slower to discover its charms, drawn by the superior claims of Yogya and its world-class ancient temples. With Air Asia flights from KL now arriving in Semarang, this is finally beginning to change. Semarang may develop as a cultural tourism destination in the coming years.

If you want to do a tour of Semarang's colonial heritage, add this former Dutch-era social club to your walking tour. Dating back to the 1860s, it is an elegant, well-preserved structure with the typically 'wedding cake white' look of many buildings from the era.
