This is not a fancy place to visit. Working harbor, dusty, gritty, very busy. So f you think this is a tourist attraction, that is well preserved, move on to view the next attraction, this is not for you. I rented a cycle from the SQUARE and made the trip to the harbor....about 20 min ride, through Jakarta's busy busy busy streets. Weaving in and out of traffic, kind of unnerving....Another 25 to 30 minutes in riding through the harbor taking pictures.

Impossible to skip! All guides will take you around Old Batavia (with the remains of the Dutch colonial city) and suddenly you'll be in Sunda Kelapa: the old port of Jakarta. Sunda Kelap has played a significant role in the development of the Indonesian archipelago (with over 18.000 islands). Nowadays it is only a minor port, accomodating dozens of "pinisi", the traditional two masted wooden sailing ship servicing the islands. Although its historical importance, the area is filthy and dusty. I had a guide, but it didn't add much to the visit. So, if you have the chance, just drive around and it's done.

very good thing to say that this harbor functioned just the way it is since hundreds of years ago, you could grab a boat there to maritime musseum too!

We only had one day to see the sights and were taken to the Old port of Jakarta called Sunda Kelapa, not much to see other then a few old type vessels been loaded , little atmosphere to really be a tourist attraction, a drive by would have been more then sufficient. Don’t waste your time! From what we saw skip Jakarta entirely and head directly to the airport for an additional day of your holidays some where else.

You can see traditional boats here preparing to transport goods all over Indonesia. Coming to this place you can understand why Indonesian song writer wrote the song "my great grandfather is a sailor - nenek moyang ku orang pelaut". Unfortunately, the surrounding here is not well-developed to make it become a great tourist attraction.
