Historical icon that represents the people of Indonesia. Good that during this trip, I was able to see it from Gambir Station. Only 1 gate (the other side) is still open beyond 4 pm.

Since Jakarta doesn't have many landmarks, Monas is pretty decent to visit if you happen to be in the area. It would be nice if you can get to the top, but the line can be too long that it might not be worth the wait. Overall it's not the best but an interesting place to visit.

It is worth a visit for the historical value as well as the view of the city from the tower. The visit includes a tram ride around the environs along with scenes re-creating historical events and the panoramic view from the top of the tour.

you must see, is prety big. But on top of the monument is going only one lift - this mean if you will go to visit late morning you will be in large queue. Every hour in the hall is reading indipendece declaration. On the lower level of the monument is nice historical preview of the Indonesia

This place is very good to visit during morning and evening. If in afternoon and hot day, this place really not suitable for fun with children. Good place to walk with family

Monas (National Monument) is the simbol of Indonesia multi ras, multi etnic and multi cultural. Its located in central Jakarta, facing the predential palace. This is a must seen location for foreigners. On Sunday morning, jakarta people visited this place for light sports/exercise. Sometimes there's firework events around 9PM on the weekends.

We didn't get to the Museum or the tower due to the huge line full of indonesian tourists, and the outdoor part is not special at all. There are just a few entries/exits so bear that in mind cause the heat can be pretty suffocating.
