A great picture taking location. Entrance fee is 15k per person. Before going to the top, there is a museum about the history surrounding Jakarta at the basement. Only 1 problem though, there is only 1 lift to go to the top. Quite a wait so be prepared. Besides that, great view and a must visit in Jakarta.

Monumen Nasional called as MONAS is one landmark in central Jakarta. A place that is good to relax with family while learning about the history of the struggle for Indonesian independence. Here also provide a souvenir in the form of clothing, miniature of monument and Betawi traditional culture & food "kerak telor".

The local history you see in the basement was interesting and there is a lot repairs going on at the basic of the momument but the view was unimpressive especially for the long wait. More was needed to show off the importance of this particular building.

No visit to Jakarta would be complete without a visit to Monas, Indonesia's national monument. You can buy a ticket at the bottom and get a lift up to the top. Views are pretty good all round. Also don't miss some of the statues located in the vicinity of Monas. If you like history you'll like this place. As it... More

If ever i would go to Monas is because i'd like to eat kerak telor, some rice cooked with scrambled egg and spices. If i bring my family is to let my girl play bicycle on the afternoon..a cheap and near home spot.
