3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Nice view, a very large place, the high monument and nothing else. One visit just to get some more about Indonesia.

“Security and Sanitation”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Monas itself is amazing only some lack on the spot or park close with the Gambir Station which is dirty and smell urine in every spot. Some grafitties on the statues. Mostly trash on the park and Monas area. Many people broke the fence and less maintenance of the fence (cable fence). Lack of security because many group of people having activities and I saw none of the security surrounding Monas. They were only on the gate of Monas.
