Tanah Abang or Pasar Baru (Bandung)

Hello all,

I’m planning to get some textiles, jilbab, etc for family members for souvenirs/gifts. I thought of getting the stuff either in Tanah Abang or Pasar Baru. Don’t wish to go to both though...need the extra time for leisure and some pampering. We will do our other shopping at Bandung FOs.

I gather that both offer similar product range but Tanah Abang is way much bigger than Pasar Baru. But...does Tanah Abang offer much wider and better varieties? Are the prices cheaper compare to Pasar Baru (similar product and quality)? And can I say that both places require negotiation skills to shop?

Thanks all!!!

Bandung

<<Anyway, I’ll be reaching Jakarta on Saturday (17 Dec) maybe around 12pm and thought of heading straight to Tanah Abang>>

as i know lots of shop in Tanah abang only open till 2 pm at Saturday.they are only working half day in weekend.

Better go in Monday - Friday,its open till 4/5 pm in that day so you will get more time to shop

Dear Riyanti, since there are so many shops in Tanah Abang.. Its best if you come to Jakarta and have a look at the choices there yourself.. Since you are first time poster, Will excuse you this time but no business enquiries and speak english next time.. Be wary of anyone offering any business to you in this forum..

riyanti, your posts on this forum has moved from merely an annoyance of writing in other language than English (this is an English speaking forum!) to personal attack and harassment. Your actions are against forum guidelines.
