Lok Baintan Floating Market An absolute ‘must see’ when in Banjarmasin is the Lok Baintan floating market on the Martapura River. Held daily for over 500 years, this vibrant, colourful market is widely regarded as the most authentic of its kind in SE Asia and few who have seen it would argue.
The museum is located on the banks of Martapura River, adjoining the bridge 17 Mei (Banua Anyar Bridge) that large, long and sturdy. Wasaka itself derived from Waja Sampai Ka Putting that means incessant struggle to the death. That sentence is the slogan of the struggle people of South Kalimantan.
