To get from airport to city, travellers can take the Trans Semarang Bus Rapid Transit to Semarang Tawang Station, the biggest railway station in Semarang. Otherwise, taxis are also available from the airport. Head to the taxi pool outside the Arrival terminal for a cab to town, but do note that taxis that depart directly from the airport charge a more expensive fare than those that are hailed off the street. You can easily get around this by walking about 50 metres ahead to the airport gate to grab a taxi instead. A ride to town should cost about SGD$5 and take around half an hour.
What to see and do
At Semarang, visit the Lawang Sewu, originally built as the headquarters of the Dutch East Indies Railway Company. Named ‘Thousand Doors’ in Javanese due to its countless doors and arches, Lawang Sewu also has 600 large windows. It has since gained a reputation for being a haunted house after the Japanese army took over the building and turned the part of the building’s basement into a prison with executions conducted there as well.
