I have been around Jakarta for a while and I must say you don't have many things to visit or to sightseeing besides mall. As european we dont really have this culture of hanging out in malls all day and need some air (note I won't use the word Fresh air since Jakarta pollution is crazy). So we went to... More

No fun walking along the narrow sidewalk of this inconspicuous street on a warm Saturday afternoon. The street is lined with many shops, selling mostly antiques and junks. There are also other shops selling imitation goods such as wallets, luggage bags, handbags and shoes. It is possible for one to uncover some real antiques at bargain prices but to me,... More

A long, long street lined with stalls. Some of it is clearly junk, or reproductions, but there is some genuine stuff here - e.g. old gas pumps, old transistor radios, ship fittings. If you really want to buy antiques, make sure you know your stuff because some is fake. But it's an interesting walk, & a good place for souvenirs... More

Unless you know your stuff, don't come here hunting for antiques. You have been warned. That urn claimed to be from Ming dynasty era may turn out to be made just a couple of years ago. Do come for the experience, which I find to be pleasant and interesting. The entire street is lined with mature trees that provide shelter... More

We figured there would be a handful of stands where to shop for antiques and didn't allow nearly enough time here. The vendors will really negotiate and it works best if you pit them against one another to get the best prices. Normally you will get things for 30-40% of the asking price. There are roughly 200 vendors and it... More

I have been visiting the "antique" shops on this street for many years now. It is fun to look and to talk to the shop owners. Some items are new antiques, some are authentic. Either way, browsing is fun.

A long street selling mostly bags and antiques (gramaphones, discs etc). Most sensible and thrifty travellers probably wouldn't spend here, but it's a nice place to visit for phototaking. Some kinder shopowners let you take pics with the cool antiques :) Quite inconvenient for large families.

I didn't except Pasar Jalan Surabaya to be so easy to find. The shops all line up on one side of the street, and that are all very full of trinkets and "antiques." From fake VOC pottery replicas to antique brass locks, to lamps, chandeliers, and wood carvings, this market is a cool way to spend an hour or so.... More

You will probably find here the best souvenirs and antiques in Jakarta. First prices are high, but do not forget to bargain with a smile and the prices will melt!

We went to Jalan Surabaya only to look, but we saw that is possible to get a very good bargain. The place is huge, like 1.2 Km with a lot of antiques and arts, and the products are fantastic. We loved that place and in the next weekend we are going to buy our antiques there.
