Attractive Lakes and Reservoirs, New Magnet in Makassar
In the midst of the bustle of Makassar city, residents are seeking oases to refresh their minds. When urban concrete scenes and rumbles of vehicles, a leisurely healing break at the edges of waters is the answer.
As a coastal city, sea views are not hard to find in Makassar. However, the largest metropolis in eastern Indonesia also has a number of reservoirs and artificial lakes in its hub that have lately become increasingly frequented alternatives for residents to calm down for a while, especially after the Covid-19 pandemic has eased off.
One of those often visited, particularly by young people, is the lake in the complex of Hasanuddin University (Unhas) in Tamalanrea district. Every afternoon, visitors are sitting around the lake, angling, having discussions or browsing on their laptops.
