11 Malls in Jakarta For a Fantastic Shopping Experience

It would be a crime to visit Jakarta and not go mall hopping. The capital city houses over 170 malls with plenty of fashion, food and fun to offer. You're bound to end up in front of a glitzy entrance tempting you to empty your wallet (or spend your entire Credit Card limit), but it's probably a good idea to know the can't-be-missed malls. Here's a roundup of the best malls in Jakarta:

1. Pondok Indah Mall (PIM):

Cover these six malls in Jakarta and you would be well on your way to becoming an expert on shopping in the city, not to mention the complete wardrobe upgrade bound to happen with it. Just beware the Jakarta traffic, or you'll end up killing time in the back of a taxi instead. It's best to get out early and beat the rush so that you have maximum time to shop. Mall hopping in the capital city is made even more convenient with the tourist cards that many malls offer. These cards are valid for a short period of time - about a week or two - and provide a special discount to those with a Non - Indonesian passport. There are discounts, variety and quality - do you really need more incentive to shop?
