East Kalimantan

East Kalimantan (Indonesian:  Kalimantan Timur), is a province of Indonesia. Its territory comprises the eastern portion of Borneo. It has a population of about 3 million, and its capital is Samarinda.

East Kalimantan has a total area of 139,461.82 square kilometres (53,846.51 sq mi) and is the second least densely populated province in Kalimantan. The majority of the region shares a maritime border to the east with West Sulawesi and North Sulawesi; its coastline faces the Makassar Strait and the Celebes Sea. Its former northernmost region is now North Kalimantan; to its south, East Kalimantan borders the South Kalimantan province. The province bordered Sabah before the split, but still borders Sarawak.

East Kalimantan is now divided into 6 regencies and 3 cities. Awang Faroek Ishak is its governor and Farid Wadjdy as its vice governor.
