Start early in the morning before it gets too hot. The many small shops are crowded with treasures and junk, it's up to you to discern which is which. The shop owners are polite, helpful and know their wares. Towards the back of each shop is where the really interesting older batiks and traditional textiles are carefully kept in old,... More

First walk down the shops and see what you like. The common masks and statues are on all shops. when you ask the price bargain and see. If you see the price is right for you buy. Most of them are cheap than buying from your home town. There are some lovely items and you will be tempted to buy... More

If you stay at Mangga 2 area, this market is only about 15 minutes away by taxi or ojek. Not far from Menteng (where Obama used to stay). The shops are littered with vintage items, reproduction and a handful of genuine antiques from Java, India, West Kalimantan and some from the Dutch era. This is my second visit, and more... More

One side of the road has luggage and the other side has the wood carvings, the ceramics, puppets, and metal art. It's important to bargain - do so politely and you'll find a good deal. My brother, mother and I found quite a lot of good stuff. While I wasn't that great at haggling, I do love what I brought... More

Jalan Surabaya is the heaven for antiques lover. If you collect antiques, you will definitely love this place. Along this street many shops offer variations of home decoration to oldies Music vynill. Be careful to do the bargaining because if you are not really know the price range, you might be fooled.

As every thing in Jakarta the first problem is the traffic jam. So when you arrive, you expect to spend some time.But there are only very small shops, and almost all present the same things. Only if you are near this place, or really a lot of interest for antics

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
