The city’s name derives from the Javanese words “asem” and “arang” which literary translate to “scarce tamarind.”

Semarang lies in the northern part of Central Java. It is a bustling mid-sized city with a population of 1.5 million. More a business than tourism destination, it nevertheless has its own charm with contrasting modern mid-rises, Dutch colonial architecture, Chinatown, and small “kampong” jutting against each other.
