This is one of the best spot in Jakarta for tourism. Sunda Kelapa is the main gate of Jakarta, even now this harbour only use for domestic cargo. But the Phinisi wooden boat still wonderful and very unique. Boating at this harbour along the canal to the sea was the best…
There's local guide there who will come to you offering to guide you around. They are scam, this chubby guy with orange hat will charge you way above what you should have to pay. Try to avoid guide in this place, better come with your legal guide booked from tripadvisor.
Beautiful oldies ... feels like walking in the past. I wonder how was this place could be in those old days.
interesting to vidit if you are up there if you do another things there otherwise you will have too much traffic for one visit. I did rent a small boat for birdwatching which is incredible to see then take tour time to visit the harbor.
Old wooden two masted phinisi schooners. Narrow planks to walk on to get from the pier to the ship. Hand loading boxes into nets moving from ship to truck or the reverse. Fish auctioning. Men living on small boats. Tradition dating back to the 17th century. Very interesting
