You must haggle for prices. They all will claim their goods are real old antiques and charge a lot. With a little patience and eye for details you can get interesting pieces of something that may remind you of something sentimental, or just for the fun of it.

As a collector I visited this market as a matter of interest .while one may find it interesing I found it to be much of the same and overpriced to say the least .i don't find reproduced antiques that were made yesterday the least bit interesting .the only thing I can add to this is buyer beware

Really love this place, there is something for anyone looking for a bit of bric a brac. I bought a pair of wayang golek and the seller was very enthusiastic about swappingthe golek heads to match the blue batik outfits I preferred. Remember to bargain quite hard as the sellers are seasoned campaigners. There is also another row of shops... More

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
