Plan to go to Jakarta for a tour. What should we not miss doing? We're 30-40 YO, all single. Love local food, shop for souvenirs in night markets, go to a bar and meet fellow tourists and locals perhaps.
Hi, jakarta is a heaven of shopping malls. In fact, many of the best restaurants are located inside the malls, from international cuisine to local food.
There's a new restaurant/bar in jakarta, SKYE, located on 56th floor. You could get the best view of jakarta in the night from there.
if you're planning on buying some batik, you should consider Thamrin City, there are a lot of batik variety there.
For seafood lovers, there's Bandar Djakarta on Ancol and Pluit. I suggest you to try padang cuisine from any padang restaurant.
If you are not a fan of shopping or cuisine trip, you could go to ragunan zoo (but it's located in bogor), taman mini indonesia indah, Kota tua, Museum nasional, etc.
Hope this helps. about 7 years ago
And oh, you should also consider take a walk on pasar baru area and visit Cathedral church and Istiqlal Masjid. They are the biggest church and masjid in jakarta and located almost side by side. After a walk, especially in this dry-hot season, i recommend you to go to Ragusa for their famous homemade ice cream since the dutch era.
For authentic indonesian food, try Loro Djonggrang or Merah Delima. They got a very nice javanese-traditional feel interior and ambience. about 7 years ago
