Kota Tua Jakarta which had become dilapidated has now become one of the major spots in West Jakarta where one can see old and beautiful buildings which have now been restored. With an attempt to get Kota Tua nominated as one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites, major restoration and renovation is happening in the buildings of the area under Jakarta Old Town Revitalization Corporation, adding a whole new exciting chapter in Jakarta’s history.

Things to Do

While the old town in West Jakarta is famous for its charming and beautifully renovated buildings and bungalows, most of them are used to set up some business, cafe or restaurant. Two favourite café’s in the old town are Historia Food & Bar and next door Djakarté. Historia has lovely and lofty interior, that so effortlessly combines solid teak tables with elegant vintage cabinets and chairs, but the real highlight is the floor to ceiling murals of scenes of life in the colonial Kota.  Both Historia and Djakarté were selected by UNESCO as pilot site projects and best-practical examples of revitalization to inspire other owners of historic buildings.
