“Wide array of attractions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

There are lots of things to enjoy in Ancol. Not only the beach, but also the sea animals (dolphin, whale, seal, etc) shows, the sea world aquarium and the amusement park (Dunia Fantasi). There are attractions for everyone. There are also several good restaurants (seafood off course) in there.

“what dreamland”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

we went into seaworld, big disappointment, coming from SA, we have better mini aquariums that give you a better view of fishes and crabs, and other sea animals in their natural habitats.
the one plus side was the curious shop, although even this was stocked mainly with different kinds of sea plush animals, nothing more...

“Nothing there!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

There is nothing there to see, the place is a rip off for locals only, dirty beaches, garbage everywhere, tourists will certainly not enjoy going there.
it takes hours in traffics jams to get there if you are staying in the hotels around the center of Jakarta.
you will know you have reached Ancol just by the sewages smells.
Sorry but really one should not waste his time or money to go there.
