Take in some of Jakarta’s iconic landmarks- pay a visit to the National Monument (MONAS) and the National Museum in Central Jakarta or spend a day exploring Dutch colonial buildings and historical architecture in ‘Old Batavia’. The Capital is also a renowned shopping destination, home to over 170 shopping malls offering everything from high end designer goods to cheap bargains, making it the ideal location to lock in some retail therapy.

A visit to Jakarta isn’t complete without sampling various Indonesian delicacies such as Gurami Terbang (deep-fried flying fish), Nasi Uduk (rice cooked in coconut milk) and Bubur Betawi (chicken rice porridge)- keep an eye out for these famous dishes as you explore the Capital. Whether you’re after street eats or upscale dining options, you will find every cuisine imaginable on offer in and around the city.
