I guess this is comming for all the Asea sooner or later: the authentic old stuff being replaced by replicas and cheap fakes - same here. Bargaining not working to the expected levels as well.

Jalan Surabaya is a glorious street on which to spend a couple of hours, especially if you like to rummage around second, third and maybe even twentieth hand oddments. The long road is housed on the left with stalls selling genuine bits and pieces mixed in with junk and tat. You could pick up an ornament or decoration in brass... More

This flea market is known for its antiques and eclectic display of goods for sale. Many travellers often sold their stuffs before returning home so you may find lots of reading treasure and many more among claimed antiques on sale. Good place to find hidden gems but do haggle, the art of haggling is what most Indonesian do best. Do... More

Jalan Surabaya is really the only place of consequence to go if you want Indonesian antiques in Jakarta. Just beware that many purported "antiques" are not. Also, bargain hard. Very hard. If you aren't Indonesian, they will likely quote you a price 4X higher than their minimum, if not more.

It's a good place to pass few hours, get an idea of the typical handcraft and also of the prices the locals are putting on them. If you like to bargain and you like to collect souvenirs or antique stuff this is the place for you. Indeed one has to be careful with the prices and get informed before. Local... More

Low end products including cheap imitations. One wouldn't go here specifically looking for something, it does not have a fixed theme and vendors peddle whatever they can lay their hands on. Can't say it's trendy, more for a tourist with time on hand to wander.
