Three years ago, for the first time I came to the capital city of Pekanbaru in Riau Province. Have never imagined for me to get to this town and have not the slightest imaginable as if the atmosphere and the city state. From the plane appeared verdant tree lined and neatly along the vision, which I finally know if it was palm forest, so vast. Down from the airport, entering the city through the main streets clean and green, Jend. Sudirman Street. Office, Bank and various business activities along the road there is., Then I went to Diponegoro Street, where many government offices and the residence of the governor of Riau. I love Diponegoro Street, clean streets, lies the region's elite, not too crowded and that parks must have a clean city, green and tidy.
After some time living here, this town was very pleasant friendly and comfortable to live at mix. Because the positions were in Pekanbaru that it will take us to Padang, Dumai, Medan, Jambi and Palembang make this city where the meeting of various people from different areas are mostly Minang, Batak, Chinese, Javanese and Malays who were the original inhabitants Pekanbaru. As a city intersection and a business center, make this city thrive development. Mall of the increasing number of emerging advances are also increasingly infrastruktu development and supporting structures. The last entry is the future Giant Mall will be followed Carefour built in this city, reportedly just waiting for permission from the mayor of Pekanbaru.
Caltex is the oil companies doing exploration in Pekanbaru, precisely in Minas, Rumbai. Once I entered this region, and indeed extraordinary and spatial location, all neatly trimmed, streets, parks, complete with all the facilities the cleanliness and neatness are very high. And strict maintenance of the road rules must be obeyed by all residents and road users, both from the speed of vehicles, road signs etc. laulintas. It really shows the quality of world-class companies. In addition there are PT Indah Kiat in Prawang and PT RAPP (Riau Andalan Pulp and paper) in Pangkalan Kerinci, Riau, a company that produces paper pulp and international scale.
Cost of living in Penkabaru was quite high, this is due to the lack of land for agriculture and plantations (except palm and rubber plantations) because the land here is mostly peat land which is not suitable for planting rice, corn and various vegetables. So the basic materials are imported from outside the city such as West Sumatra and its vicinity, causing it to be the standard of living is higher than the others. Also perhaps because of higher incomes also yan, Cevron employees and farmers are pushing high oil demand is also encouraging that there are price increases.
Many tourist attractions in this city can be visited, and various entertainment and sports facilities that can be enjoyed together, but wait for the next episode of writing ya .. :)
