Hi hazar,

I agree with stef to shop at pasar baru first.you can start at 9am.

About shopping at mangga 2 then tanah abang, i'm not really sure you can do it because tanah abang and mangga 2 is quite far each other and there's always traffic jam so you'll waste your time unless you already know which shop do you want to shop in mangga 2 and tanah abang and not searching anymore. The shop location can be confusing especially in tanah abang

What kind of things do you want to buy?maybe i can give you a suggestion it's better to go to tanah abang or mangga 2

Thanks for the tips stefazz.. will change my itenary accordingly.

Lia, actually my wife is looking for handbag and shoes. My assumptions was our hotel in jakarta (Ibiz Mangga 2) is nearby the shopping complex. We will spend few hours over there, get back to hotel for a bath and straight away go to Tanah Abang.

In Tanah Abang we are looking for women's Prayer Telekung and Kain Sarung. One more thing is, where is the good place to get snack like kacang and kerepek?

Much better to just stick to mangga dua though.. You can find Muslim wear in Pasar Baru..

Hi hazar,

If your wife looking for handbags and shoes, mangga 2 is the right place to go. Actually, you can buy women's prayer telekung and kain sarung in pasar baru. They have a lot there and the price is the same with tanah abang cause some telekung made in tasikmalaya,city near bandung. My suggestion, you can search first in pasar baru bandung then if you're not satisfy, you go to tanah abang. If you decide to go to tanah abang, dont leave mangga 2 more than 1pm cause tha journey to tanah abang can takes 1,5-2 hours

hi again sifu's..

Then no point to go to Tanah Abang when i can get most of my shopping list items from Pasar Baru..

Is there any place near Mangga 2 can i visit to fill in our morning activity? So that i can go shoping at Mangga 2 in the afternoon?

1/ <<Is there any place near Mangga 2 can i visit to fill in our morning activity?>>

Ancol Park is 5 min drive from Manga Dua if that`s what`s on your mind.

2/ and i add my vote to your itinerary praise - ALL DOABLE< well-balanced and wisely-planned.........
