Finding Unexpected Street Art in Semarang

Who knew there was a thriving street art scene in Semarang? Prior to going, I didn't even know Semarang existed. Where exactly is Semarang? It's located in the north of Central Java in Indonesia. What brought me to this small city was Kampung Pelangi but finding unexpected street art in Semarang was an added bonus.

FINDING UNEXPECTED STREET ART IN SEMARANG

Most of the street art can be found in an area referred to as the Old City of Semarang. This area is filled with dilapidated Dutch Colonial buildings and crumbling walls offering street artists lots of opportunities to display their art. I did see a few artworks scattered elsewhere in the city so best you keep your eyes peeled. Since street art can be easily painted over by other artists' or the wall is at risk of being demolished, these exact artworks might not exist anymore.

As a fan of all things creative, I really enjoy writing posts on street art I come across on my travels. I try my best to give credit to the artists but I didn't have much luck in finding any information (despite the @tags). However, my mostly fruitless search did bring me to this Instagram account, 'Bring No Clan', featuring street art from Semarang.

As I searched for the artists, I realized I only caught a glimpse of the amazing street art in Semarang. There's a lot of talent in this small city! Have a look at the hashtags #semarangstreetart or #semaranggraffiti on Instagram and you'll discover a slew of incredible street art. If you recognize any of these artworks, please let me know and I'll gladly add the artist's name and link their social media.

Anyways, in the meantime, I hope you enjoy this condensed gallery of eclectic street art from Semarang.

Is Brunei Darussalam worth visiting? Judging by what I've read online, most people would answer with a resounding 'No'. Although I believe every country has something to offer, I do agree that you shouldn't go out of your way to visit this lesser known nation. But, what if it's on the way? 
If you're traveling overland in insular Malaysia, crossing the border to Brunei is easy and hassle-free. That thinking is exactly how I ended up in the Sultanate of Brunei Darussalam. If you don't already know, Brunei Darussalam is on the island of Borneo. The Sultanate is considered to be one of the richest countries in the world thanks to its abundance of oil fields. This tiny country is governed by one of the last monarchies still in existence. Currently, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah is the reigning king. <img src= LINK IN BIO ⬆ #bruneidarussalam #brunei #borneobrunei" data-recalc-dims="1">

Qatar is a minuscule peninsular country sticking out like a thumbs up in the Persian Gulf. Its prime location has given the country access to offshore petroleum reserves. As a result, Qatar is the richest country in the world, surpassing its neighbor, the United Arab Emirates as well as Singapore and Hong Kong. In the last 50 years, Doha went from a sleepy fishing village to a booming, futuristic city. To be honest, I expected Doha to be unappealing and sterile. My doubts were swiftly put to rest once I stepped foot in the old quarter of Doha. 💻 LINK IN BIO⬆ #qatar_photo #qatarlayover #doha_qatar #souqwaqifdoha

The eccentric Cao Dai Holy See Temple is in the town of Tây Ninh (about 80 km from Ho Chi Minh). Established in 1926, Caodaism is unique to Southern Vietnam but has a small number of adherents in Europe, North America and Australia. 
Caodaism incorporates beliefs and practices originating from 3 major schools of thought: namely, Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. All those who adhere to Caodaism are vegetarians. Men and women dress in subdued white outfits but, ironically, the temple couldn’t be more colourful! <img src= When visiting the temple (entrance is free), women must enter on the left while men enter on the right. Shoes must be left outside and pictures of people (including visitors) inside the temple are forbidden. Visitors must walk clockwise and aren’t allowed to set foot in the middle (reserved for praying only) of the temple. I had been wanting to visit Holy See for a while and it certainly didn’t disappoint! 😁 #caodaitemple #holysee #voyageusesqc #wearesaigoneer" data-recalc-dims="1">
