|The Border Crossing Post (Pos Lintas Batas Negara - PLBN) Entikong. Say that you are a tourist.
Kalimantan, the world's third-largest island (539,460 square kilometers), is truly unique. It is the only island in Indonesia that is shared by three countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei Darussalam.
The second uniqueness lies in the fact that the indigenous population in all three countries is the same, namely: the Dayak people.
Therefore, if we delve into the history of the establishment of the Entikong Border Crossing Post, one of its objectives is to facilitate interaction and communication between the residents of the two countries because they share a common origin before Dutch and British politics divided Kalimantan into three countries.
Say that you are a tourist
If you ever visit Kuching - Pontianak round trip, at the border crossing post between Malaysia and Indonesia, say to the immigration officer, "My purpose is tourism," and you will be facilitated. In addition to the courteous and selected words of the officers, they are friendly to tourists because it brings foreign exchange to their country.
The contrasting atmosphere is evident in the construction of infrastructure at the national border. The Border Crossing Post (Pos Lintas Batas Negara - PLBN) Entikong is truly magnificent. It reflects the face of Indonesia.
Indeed, our border post in Entikong is very grand. This is because the Governor of West Kalimantan, Cornelis (2008-2018), at that time, had a close relationship with Jokowi.
