Indonesia's capital city, Jakarta is also the nation's cultural, economic and political centre. Amble leisurely through Kota Baru, or Jakarta's Old Town, where colonial Dutch architecture remains preserved as they stood during the times before Indonesia's independence. Take in the heady sights and smells of Glodok, Jakarta's historic Chinatown area, before heading towards central Jakarta to marvel at MONAS, Indonesia's National Monument to its freedom struggle.
Fall in love with the Thousand Islands or Kepualan Seribu, one of Indonesia's most hyped beach getaways and lose yourselves in the pristine white sands of the archipelago. Jakarta offers much to any tourist and alongside the historic sights of the city lies the ultra-modern malls and its bustling nightlife scene.
The sprawling nature of Jakarta, with its crowds, its maniacal traffic and the sheer speed of life in the city may overwhelm some tourists at first sight. But beneath this rather busy exterior, Jakarta is a city filled with interesting contrasts of the contemporary, traditional, extravagant and the humble. It is an eclectic mix of many Asian and South-East Asian cultures (the native Batavian culture in particular), Dutch and Islamic influences and channels them all into a beautiful set of contrasts.
With a wide range of activities and the best nightlife in all of South-East Asia, Jakarta is an experience for the culturally curious and the adventurous tourist.
