Try visit and see this Anging Mammiri city, with its international airports Sultan Hassanudin. It is not possible to beat Surabaya or Jakarta in a few more years . Even me already felt Makassar city bustle just after I coming out of the airport. Traffic jam everywhere!. So I asked myself, maybe congestion virus in other big cities in Java such as Jakarta already spread everywhere, including this city.
