Travel guide to Jakarta
Thousand islands
Thousand islands
Indonesia is made up of over 1700 islands and at the heart is Java where the Jakarta is be found.

Jakarta isn’t really a destination city (imho), but more of a gateway - it’s a bit of a chaotic capital. The shopping here is great and I found quite cheap. For electronics head to Glodok, although I didn’t really enjoy the experience, but Blok M serves more the middle class and includes huge shopping malls. Plaza Indonesia is a really superb designer shopping experience.

There are a couple of museums that worth checking out firstly Jakarta History Museum and Museum Bahari the maritime museum. It has a photo display that recreates voyages from Europe, Ceylon and Singapore; and also craft from around Indonesia.

Merdeka Square has the national monument – the Monas, and in the same area is Sunda Kelapa - the old port, which has many sailing ships including Makassar schooners.

Then there is Taman Mini Indonesia Indah and Ancol. [edit text]  [editors]
