Pekanbaru is considered one of the cleanest cities in Indonesia. It was established as a trading port for the local coffee and coal industries due to its direct access to the Straits of Malacca, allowing it to become the centre for Malay culture in Indonesia. The Malay influence is heavily present in the city’s architecture.
