    Jakarta – a brief overview

    One of Asia’s most fascinating and dynamic cities, Jakarta is perfect for those who like their towns brash, bold and relentless. It might not be the most beautiful place in Indonesia, but what it lacks in looks it makes up for in buzzing culture, superb food, unique museums and a love of late-night fun.

    Explore colonial history in the Old Town or discover the amazing ethnic diversity in the eastern neighbourhoods. Developing at a lightning-fast pace but still rough enough around the edges to give it some real charm, Jakarta is undoubtedly one of Asia’s most underrated metropolises.

    Fri 0830-1130
    Sat 0830-1330

    Also known as the elephant building after the statue out front, this museum houses art, archaeology and key historical artefacts from across Indonesia. Its ceramics and ancient treasures are the biggest highlights. Worth a visit just to see the spectacular architecture.

    Museum Bahari

    Jalan Pasar Ikan 1
    14440 Jakarta
    Indonesia
    Tel: +62 21 669 3406
    Show on map

    Opening times:
    Tue-Sun 0900-1500

    The Museum Bahari, or Maritime Museum, in the Sunda Kelapa harbour area is Jakarta’s finest museum. Housed in old Dutch East India company warehouses, it has exhibitions on how seafaring has dominated Indonesia throughout the ages, right up to the modern day.

    Taman Fatahillah

    Taman Fatahillah
    11110 Jakarta
    Indonesia
    Show on map

    This cobblestone square sits at the centre of Kota, from where the Dutch once ran their vast Indonesian colonies. There are still some original buildings to see, so head here to get a grasp of how things have changed and what old Jakarta once looked like.

    Jin De Yuan

    Jalan Kemenangan III 13
    Jakarta
    Indonesia
    Show on map

    The oldest of Jakarta’s 140 Chinese temples. First built in 1650, this pretty, tranquil temple is one of the best places to come to escape the endless thrum of the city. Incense, candles and a uniquely designed roof make this a must-visit for anyone interested in Chinese influence on this vast country.

    Balai Seni Rupa

    Jalan Pos Kota No.2
    Jakarta Barat 11110
    Indonesia


    Show on map

    Opening times:
    Tue-Sun 0900-1500

    You could spend a whole day getting lost in Balai Seni Rupa, also known as the Fine Art and Ceramic Museum. The focus is largely on traditional crafts, although it’s worth coming just to explore this huge space, which was once the Court of Justice under the Dutch and occupied by its forces as they fought Japan during WWII.

    Museum Bank Indonesia

    Jalan Pintu Besar Utara 3
    11110 Jakarta
    Indonesia

    Show on map

    Opening times:
    Tue-Fri 0730-1530
    Sat-Sun 0800-1600

    Ignore the somewhat uninspiring name. This museum is fantastic and tells the story of Indonesia’s development through its growth in financial prowess. Its home in an old bank is another one of Jakarta’s architectural marvels and deserves to be seen.

    Mesjid Istiqlal

    Jalan Taman Wijaya Kusuma
    10710 Jakarta
    Indonesia
    Tel: +62 21 3483 0375
    Show on map

    The largest mosque in the world’s largest Muslim country, Mesjid Istiqlal (Independence Mosque) is one of Jakarta’s most important places of worship. It can get especially crowded on Fridays and during early morning calls to prayer, but it’s at these times when it truly comes alive.

    Thousand Islands

    Tousand Islands
    Show on map

    Just north of Jakarta, these stunning tropical islands are well worth taking a day (or two) to explore. Tour operators in the city can arrange visits to see fishing villages, uninhabited paradises and a wide area which is protected as a Marine National Park. See amazing biodiversity and catch your breath after a few days in Jakarta’s sticky streets.

    Museum Wayang

    Jalan Pintu Besar Utara 27
    11110 Jakarta
    Indonesia
    Tel: +62 21 6292 9560
    Show on map

    Opening times:
    Tue-Sun 0900-1500

    Focusing on Javanese puppetry, this little museum is a great, off-the-beaten-track destination. Steeped in tradition, it houses beautiful puppets from across South East Asia and occasionally hosts traditional Wayang theatre performances.

    Gereja Sion

    Jalan Pangeran Jayakarta 1
    Jakarta
    Indonesia
    Show on map

    Visiting Gereja Sion, the oldest remaining church in Jakarta, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in Europe rather than Asia. Built in 1695 for former Portuguese slaves who lived outside Jakarta’s city walls, it wears its Iberian influence strongly.

    Country information

    Country overview

    Draped languidly across the equator, the charismatic archipelago of Indonesia is a smattering of diverse island jewels bobbing around in tropical seas.

    Geography

    Indonesia lies between the mainland of South East Asia and Australia in the Indian and Pacific oceans. It is the world’s largest archipelago state. Indonesia is made up of five main islands – Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, Kalimantan (part of the island of Borneo) and Irian Jaya (the western half of New Guinea) – and 30 smaller archipelagos.

    In total, the Indonesian archipelago consists of about 17,508 islands; 6,000 of these are inhabited and stretch over 4,828km (3,000 miles), most lying in a volcanic belt with more than 300 volcanoes, the great majority of which are extinct.

    The landscape varies from island to island, ranging from high mountains and plateaux to coastal lowlands and alluvial belts.

    The high incidence of volcanoes in Indonesia is due to its location along a stretch of the Pacific Ring of Fire. The collision of various tectonic plates mean that around 90% of the world’s earthquakes occur within this area, with Indonesia suffering from frequent earthquakes and volcano eruptions.

    Climate & best time to visit Indonesia

    Indonesia has a tropical climate which is highly variable from area to area. The eastern monsoon brings the driest weather (June to September), while the western monsoon brings the main rains (December to March). Rainstorms occur all year. Higher regions are cooler. Temperatures average between 23°C (73°F) and 28°C (82°F) all year, but this tends to be humid heat, with humidity varying from 70% to 90%.

    Peak time for tourists to travel is in June, July and August, although prices will be higher; those travelling in the shoulder seasons of May and September could get lucky with both weather and prices.

    Muddy roads can be a deterrent to travel in the wet season. Keep in mind that during local holidays public transport can be clogged, accommodation hard to find in holiday areas and businesses close.

    Shopping in Jakarta

    Key Areas

    Jakarta is a city that loves to shop. The CBD is absolutely rammed with high-end boutiques that are sure to leave even the most ardent shopaholics wowed. South of the centre you can find plenty of top-end malls, while to the north, you can easily come across bargains and local treasures on every street corner. Tebet, in the east, is brilliant for independent and cutting-edge stores.

    Markets

    Jalan Surabaya antiques market is the best place to go for souvenirs that your pals back home will love. Remember you need to barter in order to secure a good deal. The Tanah Abang textile and clothes market is also well worth a visit and great for those looking to make their own clothes or pick up a bargain.

    Shopping Centres

    Jakartans cannot get enough of shopping malls. The massive Plaza Indonesia (Jalan MH Thamrin 28-30) is great for top-end luxury brands, as is the nearby Grand Indonesia (Jalan MH Thamrin 1), which has an ace food court too. Check out the fX Mall (Jalan Jenderal Sudirman), if only to use the amazing 12-storey slide.

    Traveller etiquette

    Social Conventions

    Social courtesies are often fairly formal. Using a few words of the local language will be appreciated. When drink or food is served, it should not be touched until the host invites the guest to do so. Never pass or accept anything with the left hand, as this is seen as unclean. Public displays of affection between men and women are frowned upon, and kissing in public will attract a great deal of unwanted attention.

    Touching a stranger of the same sex while in conversation is very common.

    Smiling is a cultural tradition and Indonesians smile frequently, even in an uncomfortable or difficult situation.

    Visitors should avoid losing their temper as saving face is very important in Indonesian culture; tourists should avoid putting others in a situation where they may feel embarrassed or ashamed. Both men and women should take care to dress in an appropriate way for their surroundings – whilst a more casual attitude may be fine in Bali, Aceh is rather more conservative and you may be expected to cover up a little more.

    Health

    Food & Drink

    Water used for drinking, brushing teeth or making ice should have first been boiled or otherwise sterilised. Drinking bottled water is advised. Milk is unpasteurised and should be boiled. Powdered or tinned milk is available and is advised. Avoid dairy products that are likely to have been made from unboiled milk. Only eat well-cooked meat and fish. Vegetables should be cooked and fruit peeled.

    Other Risks

    Vaccinations for tuberculosis, meningitis and Japanese B encephalitis are sometimes recommended. There is a real risk of heatstroke; visitors to Indonesia should avoid the midday sun, remember to drink lots of water and apply sun cream. Travellers should also take care to acclimatise slowly when travelling to high-altitude areas, to avoid altitude sickness.
