Still on Antasari, particularly in the morning, the public markets are always attractive spots to visit where you meet locals and many interesting products, such as various river fishes, fruits in season (durian, mangosteen etc), vegetables such as rattan shoots and many more. In the evening it turns into a long night market for eating out.
