Jakarta
Jakarta
The Indonesian capital of Jakarta is located in the northwest of Java Island and is the political, economic and cultural center of the country. Jakarta, also known as “Coconut City” was just a small fishing village back in the 5th century AD, but is now a sprawling international and multicultural metropolis. The city can be separated into two parts, the old and the new. The old, industrial district is in the north, close to the bay and features unique scenery with numerous monuments. The new district, located in the south, is full of modernity and houses the central business district. Central Jakarta serves as the political center of Jakarta. Most of the buildings here are European in style. Many visitors to Indonesia use Jakarta as a transit point, but a walk around the historic city is well worth the time.

City Park
M38***13It is a very traditional Jakarta classic tourist area, similar to Shenzhen's Splendid China. It condenses many famous buildings in Indonesia in a small park, so it is called Miniature Park. There are Bali’s Hindu-style buildings, traditional temples in the Chinese community, and the unique spires of Minanga Fort, which are worth a stroll. On holidays, it is also a popular place for Indonesian locals on family outings.

DIVINE BRIGNAS SALUDAGA See? Heritage is really important to them. I was amazed how good were they in terms of arts. The exhibits there were so fascinating. They kept even the gold ones. They were able to preserve those antique through centuries. Even bones and the history of their humanity is evident.
