Jakarta City Guide

Brief History

In its 900-year history, Jakarta has seen many conflicts and changed hands numerous times. During the period of Dutch colonization, it was known as the “Queen of the East,” and after it was made the capital of the Dutch East Indies, it rapidly expanded into a major urban center. Since independence, rural people have come to Jakarta in huge numbers seeking work, and the city has become extremely dense and heavily populated.

Transportation

Soekarna Hatta International Airport is the destination for all international flights to Jakarta. It is located about 10 miles (17km) from the center of town. From the airport, there are two ways to get into central Jakarta. The airport shuttle bus is a free service, but it is not particularly reliable and you may be waiting a fair amount of time before the bus comes. The other option is to take a taxi, which is considerably more expensive, but much more dependable. Many hotels in Jakarta offer free pickup service from the airport – inquire when you make reservations.

Getting around within Jakarta can be a bit of a problem. Due to massive congestion during rush hours, a taxi ride can be very slow. The commuter train system serves suburbs and other areas outside Jakarta, but does not function as an urban metro system. The best bet for tourists is usually the Bus Rapid Transit (busway) system. Buses have their own lanes in many parts of the city, so they are not affected by the traffic as much as taxis.

Popular Attractions

  • Ancol Dream Park is one of the largest amusement parks in Asia. It’s actually several parks rolled into one, including rollercoasters, a waterpark, entertainment, an aquarium, and several other attractions. It’s much too large to see it all in one day, but it’s a fun trip for tourists.
  • For a good view of the city followed by a lesson in its history, head for the Monas, or National Monument. It combines a small museum with an observation deck.
  • Pasar Beru is one of the old market areas in the city. If you’re tired of shopping in Jakarta’s giant malls (of which there are many) you can find a more eclectic set of wares in Pasar Beru. Prices and quality are generally reasonable, although some merchants will always try to overcharge foreigners.

Food

Food in Jakarta has elements of both Indonesian cuisine and Dutch cuisine. It can be found at a wide range of prices, from upscale restaurants to street carts. A few dishes to sample include ketoprak, a rice-and-tofu dish served with peanut sauce, and nasi ulam, a bowl of coconut rice with fried beef.

Tips for Travelers

  • Jakarta can be a bit overwhelming at first. Between the smells, the pollution, the crowds, and the gridlock, it can surprise even the most jaded of urban tourists. Flights to Jakarta are most often the first leg of longer journeys to Bali or elsewhere in Indonesia, but the city itself has much to offer to visitors as well.
  • Street signs in Jakarta can be extremely confusing to visitors. Make sure to bring a good map, and try to plan your route using landmarks, not street names.
