4 Instagramable spots in Makassar

9 April 2019 Makassar, Makassar City, South Sulawesi, Indonesia

Recently, I was trying to find out instagramable spot in Makassar as I needed to capture some photos to feed my hunger instagram haha. Grabbing out my camera then trying to spare more time to explore around in the middle of my hectic days was totally worth it. Well, at the beginning, I had no idea where to go as I am not that kind of cafe-lover person. Until my friend asked me out then brought in these cool places. 
As I love quieter places, these spots are exremely fit my needs ☺️. So, if you guys are out of Makassar and have a plan to come to visit, then you definitely need to read this article. Moreover, if you are in Makassar and havent visited this places, you definitely have to visit it once in a while. 

To me, these places are the best to excape from the restless routines. What are they? 
1. Catching sunset in Tanjung Bunga

The beauty of the Sunset has never failed to melt everyone’s heart. It, on the other hands, always has its own way to bring out peace for those who are watching it. Watching it settles down while letting the wind blowing softly through your face can surely refresh your mind from your daily routines. Morever, it locates in the center of the city where everyone can easily get there. 

There is one thing that always appears on my mind imagining a most peaceful spot like is that grabing my favorite book to read or enjoying a cup of tea till the Sun is perfcetly set.

So, if you guys in Makassar, you definitely need to enjoy this beuatiful Sunset once in a while. In addition, its free for all visitors :D.
2. Visiting Akkarena
Akkarena is another spot that I love to going to when I feel bored of my days. This beach offers a magnificient view in the morning and a wonderful view of sunset in the afternoon. If you like quieter place like me, then its better to visit it on Saturday morning. This beach tends to get crowded in the afternoon and on Sunday.

Despite of going to a cafe for hours, I prefer to grab my camera to come to this beach where I can witness it then document it myself. Sometimes, I also bring my breakfast along with me so that I can enjoy it while breath in the fresh air of the ocean. And I must say that it feels amazing. Evenmore, my friend always brings her portable speaker so that we also can listen to our favorite music in the same time. 

Coming here on Saturday morning where no one else but myself and doing my favorite stuffs really make me feel like owning the place. I bet you know how it feels :)
Skydive in Akkarena

If you decide to come in the afternoon, you can dare your adrenaline by trying the skydive. This adventurous activity is available in here as well. It is a must to try as it is really able to make you fly higher and be amused by the beauty from the top.

After challenging yourself in the skydive, you can stay a little bit longer to catch the sunset. Its really worthy to watch how beauitful the sky changes in colors till it totally gets dark.

My advice, bring your best camera to document it as its has magnificient view. When I capture this sunset, I only had my phone with me so that the quality is not really good. However, I did climb the tower higher to get the best angle haha. I must admit that it was a bit risky and yet I loved the result so much :). 

PS : You only need to spend IDR 25,000 to enter Akkarena.
3. Exploring NIPAH till you drop
To be honest, I dont really like going to the mall since it always becomes a crowded place. Unless, there is a movie that I really like to watch or I need to buy an urgent item, then I will surely come. However, nipah is another mall in Makassar that is less visited as its still new. So unlike other malls in Makassar, nipah has its own uniqueness to interact its visitors.  
Third floor of Nipah

This mall reminds me a lot about Changi, where you can feel  the natural asmosphere inside of it. I guess, it meant to designed in eco-friendly environment. It has 5 floors and in the center of it there is an open space. Also, On top you can see the beauty of the city.
4th Floor of Nipah

In the 4th floor, just in the open space, you can get an instagramable spot with a warm vibes. Spending hours to explore every corner of this mall has undoubtedly rechanged my energy back. The reason why I like it so much is that because of its uncrowded and it combines between green and warm vibes. So, if you like such tones, then you definitely need to come and capture your moment here :)

On rooftop, it has greener vibes and it is really good to come to visit it in the afternoon as it will get shadier and a bit windier. It could become a favorite spot for a light reading or just laying on those clear soft grasses.

If you prefer a vintage look, you may come to the first floor. There is a cafe that offers a vintage atmosphere. On your way down to the first floor you will find the footpath with warm tone which brings you to the cafe. Continues down to the front, you can see the hanging trees that decorate the front face of the mall.  
4. Having Me-time in Indicafe
The last spot I would bring up on this article is indicafe. I believe  that this spot is really familiar to everyone who stays in Makassar.

This cafe also has green part inside of it. It has glass on top of it and hanging leaves on the left side that make it shadier. Unlike many cafes, its a bit quieter here and it can become the best place to do homeworks and discussing project with your fellas. 

PS : You might find it a bit costly than other cafes :D

Alright, thats 4 instagramable spots in Makassar that I found lately. I believe there are more to explore in this busy city which I will surely post it in the next article. So stay tuned amicas amicos 😘.

  6. Nice article with good photos ��
    But, let me give you an advice, if you don't mind...

    If you write number in the title, so you must put it again in your article. So, your readers knows what's the point in the article that syncronize with the title. IMHO.

  9. Dan sampai hari ini saya belum pernah ke Nipah Mall hahaha.
    Selain karena memang lebih banyak di Papua, juga karena memang saya bukan tipe anak mall.

    Kalau memang tidak perlu, ya nda usah ke mall hihi.

    Nantilah, pasti akan tiba waktunya saya ke Nipah Mall
