April 24, 2010 - To this very day, every morning there are floating markets in Banjarmasin in which farmers and traders brought their goods to trade on boats. It has always been a farmersí market and itís interesting to see the genuine river-based way of life. The rivers are also the main venues for boat races and other festivities. The main attractions are the waterlogged suburbs traversed by canals; much of the city's commerce takes place on water. Get there early to enjoy most of it.
