Honestly there aren't many tourist destination in Balikpapan, but the beaches are clean we can watch the sunset and the local food also delicious.
I live in Balikpapan from 2008 so it's been 10 years now. Eventhough I'm not originally from this city, trust me I know alot and you might be think that I'm local.
I know some hiking spots, we can also crossing the canopy bridge in Bukit Bangkirai. And see the city mascot Sun Bear also try some local food here. But I'm not really know about the night clubs in Balikpapan, eventhough there are lots of them here. The beaches also really clean, we can watch the sunset or maybe if we're lucky we can try paragliding.
