Lawang Sewu Building Reviews
Iconic building in Semarang. Our Semarang representative said this place is spooky. We went there at night and experienced the super naturals. A good advice to go there with friends. more »
Dalam kunjungan tugas kali ini saya dan keluarga menyempatkan diri untuk mengunjungi Lawang Sewu. Mumpung ada kesempatan..rasanya kurang afdol jika ke Semarang tapi tidak mengunjungi tempat wisata ini... more »In this time, my family visits Lawang Sewu. Mumpung no chance.. It's a little afdol if to Semarang but do not visit this tourist attraction.. This part of the cultural reserve is in fact attracting visitors to explore it. Incidentally we visited on Sundays. With the entry ticket 10k for adults and 5k for children over the age of 3th. There we can not only melihat2 and take pictures in various spots that are instagramable but can also enjoy live music entertainment that serves a variety of songs genres even though their basic is keroncong (the relationship of Sawer ceremony box for visitors). For ANAK2 This place is interesting because there are stairs to go to the 2nd floor, so can play up down stairs. In addition, there is a shop knacks and Baju2 Souvernir Lawang Sewu at an affordable price. And we were quite satisfied because already visited this place.
