Monument was constructed to commemorate long national struggle of Indonesia and people integrity. And even the construction of monument do represent the same. Its a tourist friendly spot. The only downside was limited visit tickets for top. We couldn't grab the one despite our efforts both in the morning and in the evening. Dont forgot to visit base tower museum.... More

Monas is one of places in Jakarta fit for walking tour. In the weekend, you could go up to the highest tower of Monas to see Jakarta from the top. It also has museum that represent the story of Independence Day of Indonesia. A must visit place to go.

Monas is the most popular tourist spot in Jakarta. You haven't visited Jakarta if you've not visited this monument. Visitors can go inside and up to the top of the monument, with an entrance fee of Rp 20.000 + 7.500 if you want to go to the top. Not just tourists, locals also love visiting this area. It has a...

The line to get to see the top takes around 1.5 hours to get through. It is a nice view but im not sure that as a foreigner it is worthwhile investment of time. If theres some nationalistic reason for you to visit here then sure why not

Don't go there to see it, a picture on the internet gives you the same experience. Weird pink lights and the park surrounding it is also not very nice and surrounded by loads of traffic
