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.

Loads of shops selling antiques, reproductions, and inexplicably, the occasional Singapore Merlion souvenir circa 1999. Also on sale - "VOC (maybe)" stoneware, Chinese ceramics,Javanese cannons, and at one store, a carved wooden life size statue of a women holding a pineapple. Check out the puppet store - for a mere USD$150, he'll carve any famous figure you want in the... More

I arrived at the market at around 11am and was one of the first shoppers of the day. The vendors are all very keen to get the first sale of the day so if you arrive early make sure you're ready to bargain and you can get a good deal. I was looking for souvenirs for friends and family back... More

A very eclectic collection of genuine antiques, reproductions and oddities line Jalan Surabaya. Although there are many genuine antiques, there are also a lot of reproductions which are perfectly acceptable so long as you get the right price. This is very obvious when you see lots of boxes in some of the shops with 'made in China' which were mainly... More

If I had two hours to kill in Jakarta, the Jalan Surabaya flea market would be at the top of the list together with art exhibitions of local artists and Kota (the old colonial city centre). Don't get discouraged when all you see is plenty of cheap luggage shops when you enter the road from the "wrong side", just keep... More

Friends brought my husband and I here for a stroll, and we didn't leave empty-handed! We bought 2 antique clay wine bottles for a fraction of what was selling on eBay, and 2 antique kris with lovely carvings and forging patterns. Just remember to check your home country's Customs restrictions and be on the right side of the law! ;)... More
