The place is really vintage and I saw lots of captivating spots to capture however, We visited this place during afternoon and so the weather seems quite not good though, It's too hot knowing Jakarta's weather its not advisable to be there when sun strikes so bad! But I wanted to visit it during the sunset or at night since I heard that it is lovely during that time.

I walked around the old town today seeing afew museams. Is a really nice area of the city I think with beautiful old buildings. I noticed there is a market that would get pumping at night if you like night markets. If in Jakarta come here!

This area is the most crowded with roadside sellers and the traffic is chaotic. During dusk, it is not really safe as the lights are too dimmed and the crowds are building up especially in weekend. The Dutch style buildings are not litted up so not too impressive. There are history of Dutch occupation during war time, but not well described. Best time to go maybe late afternoon before dark, but expected for the worst traffic jam there. Not clean at all as the people there are not discipline in sanitation. Just one star attraction.
