Beautiful historical architectures
Sep 2019
This is an old small square in the old town of Jakarta. It is surrounded by beautiful historical architectures. There were many tourists and local. It was too hot to hang around I didn't stay long. The traditional puppet museum is at one of the old buildings.

Needs to be refreshed
Feb 2020 • Couples
European influence is evident just strolling around and observing its surroundings. From the old town square, to the museums , to some of the restaurants, and even the pavement floorings . Too bad the whole place or complex needs to be refreshed .

Historic Place
Sep 2019 • Friends
This place hold lots of beautiful corners. There are many new modern restaurants around the area, but you could also found traditional food vendors there too. Every weekend the piazza will be filled with lots of people who waited for free music performances. You can also found many museums around the area. This place could need a little fix whilst still keeping its original shapes, and it'll be the new go to place.
