Jakarta is one dynamic city. And while it might appear to be crowded and chaotic, don’t be put off by the hustle. There is plenty to discover. Start off by visiting the National Museum of Indonesia, which is known as the Elephant Building to locals thanks to the statue located in the museum’s forecourt. Here, you can spend a morning or afternoon delving into Jakarta’s history and cultures. Cross the road from the museum and into Merdeka Square to see the National Monument. The monument stands at an impressive 132 metres tall and commemorates Indonesian independence. Nearby is the Istiqlal Mosque, the largest place of Islamic worship in Southeast Asia, as well as the Gothic-style Jakarta Cathedral and the neoclassical Jakarta Art Building. Stroll through the pedestrian-friendly Pasar Baru, a buzzing local market. Explore the market’s warren of alleys and laneways, and grab some authentic indonesian satay. Street food is great value for money for travellers watching their budget, however make sure to only buy from vendors that are also frequented by locals and who prepare your dish fresh-to-order.
