15 reviews
Visit Tangkuban Parahu Volcano which is still active, that you can see the crater closely, smell sulfur and see a puff of smoke from the crater of Tangkuban Parahu Volcano. On the way to volcano, you will pass through a vast expanse of tea plantations and we will pass the local village with a vast expanse of rice fields around it. You can see the activities of farmers planting and plowing rice fields and even harvesting rice in the fields. Before returning to Jakarta, do not miss to relax and soaking in a hot spring whose water comes from the crater of Tangkuban Parahu Vulcano, after that try to explore Fruit Market and try fresh local fruit such as : the Mangostins & Honey Pineapples.

I concur with previous reviewers. This attraction is fine for a fast photo opp, but not much else. A beautiful building, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

In visiting Gedung Sate, take a picture of the whole building in front then ask the guards for the way going to the Gedung Sate Museum. The building facade looks nice in picture but you wouldn't be able to get inside and take a look of the historical buding. The museum is modernized and it's quite small that we finished our tour in 10 minutes. You can book your tickets online but I think if it's off peak season you can just go directly to the museum and pay your tickets there. One person costs only 5,000 Indonesian rupiah. There's also a cafe inside. We enjoyed their coffee, pastries and staff better than the museum itself. The Geology museum is also nearby. 5-10minute walk. I suggest you visit it first because it closes at 2pm while the Gedung Sate museum closes at 4pm.

What an interesting building - seat of West Java's Governor, Museum, Cafe and symbol of the past colonial times all in once. This building should not be missed during your stay in Jakarta. You can learn more about Java's past in the museum on the ground floor and can sip a very tasty Javanese coffee in the cafe right after the entrance. As we were traveling with one of my friends, who used to work here, we got a bit more of insight into the building's past and it's use nowadays. I would therefore recommend trying to go with a guide, but there are none available just outside, as it is generally a governmental building. Guide or not - make sure you visit.

This museum takes you through the history of Indonesia including its industries and struggle for liberation, but it also includes some cool technology like augmented reality experiences. The guides are very knowledgeable. The exhibits are in Bahasa and English. Interesting film on Indonesian independence, though the English subtitles are hard to read.
