Went on a Sunday afternoon. It was very crowded with lots of families out for the day. The park is very big! It's a nice place to stroll and take in the crowds. You can go into the tower itself, but the line wraps around the building. If you take a cab make sure they take you to an entrance... More

Beautiful and spacious green area. With eateries segregrated, walking and queueing path defined, the place requires more time to explore. To have a good view of the city at the top of the monument, please plan more time for the long queue.

First thing first, dont visited in the afternoon because it could get very hot here. Best time is either morning or evening to night. The Monas is tall enough so it could be spotted in many area in the city. You could buy ticket to enter to the top of the monument to enjoy Jakarta from above

Right In the middle of Jakarta. It's a historic Museum of Indonesia and sample of independence. you need to be patient to get to the Tower because it attracts a lot of people tourist and locals.

a huge area to cover, make sure you put on your sunscreen and hat. to go up right under the gold, you need to prepare yourself for a long queue because the lift only fit for max 10 person and the viewing area on top is limited space. On holidays, the queue can take hours and hours. it is better... More

Actually, i live in Jakarta for 21 years and that was my first time visiting Monas, before I went there, I only saw Monas from the car when I was on the road. LOL Actually, I really like Monas, the place is really clean, green, and huge. You can see another beautiful side of Jakarta from Monas.

Even the main attraction is the monument, but on the field outside the monument there's always any festivals/events being hold, mostly on weekend. Visit here in the morning is good, you can stroll around outside the monument and enter the monument once the weather get hotter. But if you want to go to the top of the monument (the gold... More

This place has a unique entrance from the Food and Culture Park where there are several tents selling souvenirs and local food. Some interesting individuals dressed as military heroes sitting with no support was very interesting. A short walk along the path and one can see this huge monument towering everything else. It is beautiful and one can walk around... More

In the surrounding of Monas we can ride a vehicle powered by a horse called "delman". once after we enter the building we can see diorama, that are depicting each stage of history of Indonesia as a nation. This diorama is very useful if you need to give history lessons in an interesting way. after that we can go up... More
