“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Very colorful, but a lot of people, they ask you for money. Better to go at night time. Also you can see and buy some traditional food and suvenirs.

“Simply a landmark”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Simply a landmark, relatively easy to get there, not very clean and have nothing special. But free anyway.

“not a good experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

No point to go there. Difficult to access, have to walk 10 minutes from any door.
Then meet strange and annoying people all the way.
Always close before the supposed 3pm.
If you are lucky to go up, you discover that there is nothing to see but a cloudy city.
Better check the museum under the tower.

“Simple monument”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

It's just a simple concrete structure in a very big park. We saw many Indonesians spending their time here with their families. If you want to see the view of Jakarta, you can take the elevator to the top.

“I have a soft spot for Monas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Anyone who's seen the obelisk in Washington will bring back memories from here. Try and go on a day the museum is open and you can go to the top to get the full experience :) Brush up on Indonesian History. Not far to Museum Gajah (National Museum) and presidential palace. :)
