“When you pass Jakarta, its a nice to see”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

You must visit the Old Jakarta "Kota" to see how was Jakarta long time back. The old buildings still there, between the dutch and chinese blended together. Dont forget to pass by to the wet market. Its a must!

Nice old decorated buildings and the atmosfear is good . Funny that large amounts of traffic through smaller roads that get out into bigger roads.

“Easy to get there despite the super crowded traffic”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

eventho its quite dirty and pollution level is just really high, the Kota Tua is still a nice place to go. I prefer to take TransJakarta or Train as its really frustrating to use car (the traffic is just horrible)

“Nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

There are a couple of museums to share the Indonesian life. We went on a Sunday and lots of families were gathered. There were food vendors,balloon salesmen, jugglers, dragon dancers as well as other entertainers. Very colorful and lively area. And Cafe Batavia in the square was a very good choice for lunch!
