    I have lived in Balikpapan city since i was born and pentacity is the best mall to go to in Balikpapan
    Even though this mall is not as large as malls in other cities such as: Surabaya and Bali, There are cinemas, restaurants, clothes stores, supermarkets, and other services available.
    Pentacity has a variety of businesses and restaurants, including Starbucks, Excelso, and a variety of restaurants.
    If you want to buy branded clothing, there are several branded clothing stores to visit, such as H&M, Sogo, and Some other stores.
    There are also hotels nearby, including in the mall's vicinity.
    Because this is a new mall, there are a few empty areas, but there will be more stores coming to make it better.
    As a result, it can be stated that this mall is a good site to visit for family amusement for those of you who may be visiting from outside the city of Balikpapan or who are Balikpapan natives.

    Not far from our house. Place where I can buy natural chicken and less fat meat for my family. My husband prefer for this kind of chicken and meat so we like to go there. Some daily care, like refill for fabric freshener, only we can meet there. For these reasons, we go there.

    But our kids know that they can play at the playground. We use that moment. When they tired after playing, go around the supermarket to accompany me buy some daily needs (they got something they need too), will make them hungry. Buy some foods also our choice.

    So its like 1 stop shop for us where we can buy daily needs, children can have some enjoy moment to play and also the food itself. So I don't have to think about our family menu, hahaha. We like the bakery shop too. Our favorites are mini danish cookies. But by any chance, we bored with this place.

    Nothing new. Children felt that way either. No new challenge at the playground. So sometime, if we got bored, we will find another place. Even if it makes me not to have all the daily need in one place. 😉😉

    Ewalk opened since 9th September 2009 , E – Walk Balikpapan has been considered as one of the leading retail industries, as well as the brand leader of entertainment and attractions in Balikpapan Built on a land area of 12000 square meters inside Balikpapan Superblock, Ewalk is considered the most popular mall due to its abundance of attractions, restaurants, general needs, and shopping centers.



    Although a new mall has opened called Pentacity, Ewalk is still popular due to its long and more popular in general, I had gone to Ewalk more times than I can count on my own two hands and every time I had gone home from the mall, I had went to the mall on weekends before the whole pandemic and usually watch a movie and eat out, in which im always content on my visit.



    Overall I would say that Ewalk is a staple to Balikpapan and I would highly recommend you to visit this place if your visting Balikpapan or have free time

    Whilst a bule will usually be exploited by the locals at a market like this... I found the prices to be good be fair (especially if you speak the language). The range is great and the food is fresh.

    Plaza Balikpapan is the first shopping mall in Balikpapan which is considered a family mall with the concept of providing all family needs in one place. This mall is known for facilities like the CGV movie theatre, Starbucks, McDonald's, Matahari, Borneo Bay, and many more. Borneo Bay, which is an apartment complex attached to the mall, is the place I often visit. The reason being my parents owning a few units in the apartment. On the other hand, I would go to Plaza Balikpapan to lounge and eat after I had helped my parents with cleaning up the apartment units. After I had eaten, I’d take a walk around the mall, which has a calmer atmosphere because it is not as crowded as E-walk or Pentacity. In contrast to the nice things about the mall, the only things that could be better is if they had more restaurants with higher qualities and more diverse stores.

    Literally there were only two shops open, KFC and JCO donut. Couldn't even find the entrance and exit. Asked security about the other shops and he said the rent there was too expensive so no shops could afford it.
