Do not go here if you are serious about purchasing antiques. Reproductions (which are being made right out in the street in front of the stores) are mixed in and everything is overpriced. Forget about taking advantage of the current exchange rates either, as the first price quoted to a foreigner is dollars. I also find haggling to be annoying.... More

This is a very interesting place to visit, but please be aware that most of the 'antiques' are not exactly old, in fact you can see some of them being manufactured right alongside the stalls! There are bargains to be had but be prepared to bargain - start at a third of what they're asking and be prepared to pay... More

for chekcing or site seeing and treasure hunt.... its great since the place is wellknown for that, but a level of 'antique eyes' need to be sure, since the old and the new ones are often mixes. do bargain 50% of what they offer first, then see the reactions foreigners do often becoming the targets of bigbucks, so have a...

The first time I was there is 30 something years ago. They are still selling 'antiques' which must have gone already long ago. Never mind, the sale guys are trained on tourists and how to sell them anything. Don't let them intimidate you, be tough and just leave when you get the feeling to be taken for a ride. It... More

Spent a couple of hours, rummaging from shop to shop and finally found a Gouda vase. This one was obviously from the Dutch occupation. The "made in holland" mark, makes it from around 1920. Cloisonné was also in reasonable supply, I did not buy any as my knowledge of it is just not good enough. This street is certainly worth... More

Just a long row of shops along one road. The shops stock varied items supposedly antiques but some are obviously fake and all terribly overpriced. I have travelled to other parts of Indonesia like Jogja, Bali, Solo and Semarang and know that some of the items can be bought at very much cheaper prices. Obviously the dealers have to make...

If you want to seek any old things or traditional things, then come visit here.. But sometimes they put expensive price on the things, so you need to negotiate it as well..start from half price..

Must try for visitors who like antiquity and also a good weekend trip down here is worth doing once in a while. You may find yourself laughing and smiling looking at the toys and things you grew up with. Also learn a thing or two regarding the antiquities. But remember to bargain and haggling is a must.

The place is old, falling apart. The goods are like from age ago, but not nice at all. Very disappointed. Travel for 1.5 hours to get there, stay for 10 minutes, get nothing home. Cheap fake stuff...
