Stopover at Jakarta airport

I and my wife are traveling on Bali-Jakarta-Bangkok. We are scheduled to arrive at Bali at 730 am on a Garuda Airline's flight on Sunday (14th July). The Jakarta-Bangkok flight is scheduled to depart at 1230 pm. Can we see something out there in Jakarta? It seems from earlier discussion that we should not do at all on weekdays. How about in our case?

In your case, it's quite difficult since most of the malls in Jakarta opens at 10AM.. There are really nothing much you can do at this period of time.. The best suggestion is to stay at the airport..

Hi Shakeel_Jajja,

To answer your question <<Can we see something out there in Jakarta? It seems from earlier discussion that we should not do at all on weekdays. How about in our case?>>

I'm afraid you don't have enough time. It is good if Garuda can check-through your baggage from Bali to Bangkok (and thus you only need to go to transfer counter once you arrive at Jakarta).

Still, on the weekend, you need at least 40mins to travel between the city and airport (so return trip you should allocate 2 hours)... Unfortunately, your transit time is early in the morning... not only shopping malls only open at 10am, but other attractions follow suit (they open from 9am onwards). Thus, leaving no option for you other than to wait in transit area of the airport...
