I visited here with friends and went to the old Dutch quarter as also the original Cafe Batavia which is amazing. Take the time to look at the old photographs and other memorabilia in the buildings. Also the street performers make the visit here memorable

Old town in Jakarta is very historical and beautiful. It has vary museums. E.g. Museum BI(Bank Indonesia), Museum Fatahillah(jakarta historical), Museum Mandiri(Bank Mandiri). Touristy and has cute cafes around. Buildings are Dutch built. Worth the visit!

Kota Tua in Jakarta is a highly recommended place to visit. However, the lack of live-attractions is made the place unconvenient for who wanted stay longer in the area. For so many local tourists the Kuta Tua is good to visit, but for tourist from...More
