Old Gowa

Once you've seen Fort Rotterdam and the Dutch-colonial architecture there, make for the outskirts of Ujung Pandang to see Old Gowa and the remains of the 16th- and 17th-century kingdom that was once the power center of South Sulawesi. Among the highlights is Benteng Sungguminasa, the fort from which the sultan once ruled. And don't miss the erstwhile royal residence—a fabulous Buginese-style palace, made of wood.
