Whether you love it or hate it, there is no escaping Jakarta, Indonesia’s overweight capital. This ‘Big Durian’ is filled with all the good and bad of Indonesian life.

At first glance, this hot, smoggy city, which sprawls for miles over a featureless plain, feels like nothing more than a waiting lounge for the millions queuing up to make their fortune. Jakarta’s infamous macet chokes its freeways, town planning is anathema and all attempts to forge a central focal point for the city have stuttered and ultimately failed. The first – or only – thought on most travellers’ minds is how quickly the city and its polluted streets can be left behind.

Beneath the veneer of glass fascias, concrete slabs and shabby slums, however, this is a city of surprises and a city of many faces. From the steamy, richly scented streets of Chinatown to the city’s thumping, decadent nightlife, Jakarta is a Pandora’s box, filled with unexpected gems. Here it’s possible to rub shoulders with Indonesia’s future leaders, artists, thinkers, movers and shakers, and to see first hand the deep-seated desire so many Indonesians have to rise above the poverty they were born into. Populated by Bataks from Sumatra, Ambonese from Maluku, Balinese, Madurese and Timorese, Jakarta is also a vast cultural melting pot in which the larger Indones­ian identity is forged; it is Indonesia in a nutshell.

Jakarta certainly isn’t a primary tourist destination, but parts of the old city (Kota) offer an interesting insight into the capital’s long history, and there are a handful of good museums scattered about. But if you want to get under the skin of Indonesia, a visit to this mammoth city is an absolute must.

Sightseeing in Jakarta


Jakarta’s top tourist center in the Kota district has plenty of historic allure, with its old Dutch flavor and myriad attractions. Tourists can walk around the old, cobbled streets and enjoy great eating and shopping away from the bustle of central Jakarta.

Istiqlal Mosque

This is the main landmark in the Indonesian capital; a mosque of gargantuan proportions that non-Islamic folk are allowed to visit. It is one of the largest mosques in the Southeast Asian region and is best visited by bus.

Jembatan Pasar Ayam

One of Jakarta’s most popular, historic landmarks is this lone remaining Dutch drawbridge. It was built in the 1600s over the Grand Canal and is highly photogenic, yet sadly doesn’t operate any more. Visitors can walk across between the British and the Dutch forts.

Taman Mini Indonesia Indah

Perhaps the most appealing attraction in Jakarta for families, Beautiful Indonesia in Little Park allows visitors to delve into Indonesian culture like at no other sight. It is a park of pretty buildings and landscapes from all over the country and includes the Museum Indonesia and an IMAX theater.

National Monument

The most prominent monument in the city rises over 420 feet above Independence Square in central Jakarta. It was built to signify Indonesia’s freedom from Dutch colonialists and regularly features festivals and concerts. Get here on foot or by bus.


Heading just north of the city to Jakarta Bay is the fun Ancol Jakarta Bay City, which is the top entertainment center in town and a gateway to the beautiful Thousands Islands region. You can get here by train, bus, or taxi and then explore the harbor by cruise boat or ferry.
