Things to do in Jakarta, Java: The Best Walking Tours

February 18, 2022 Tynisha Seiler

Chaotic, crowded, and cosmopolitan, Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, is a city of contrasts. Home to millions of people from around the world, the city is a mixture of languages and cultures, poverty and wealth. The city boasts some of the best nightlife in Asia and some of the worst traffic. Every holiday, the locals escape the pollution and the crowds to enjoy relaxing diversions like Ancol Dreamland, an amusement area featuring water parks, beaches, golf courses, and a SeaWorld.

This theme park is very expensive and foreigners pay whole lot more than Malaysian which i think is discrimina ting. The waterattractions are ok, not that scary or sensantional, there are far better ones actuallly. For that price its too expensive and I wouldn’t return. The other parks are ok. Food is expensive and overall only fast food. People swim in regular clothes which is not allowed. I find that to be disrespectful according to the rules.

I was nicely surprised to see new connecting terminals quick trains. Good security and pleasant areas to wait. Carriage is spacious and modern. Not very busy during the day but maybe I was just on Airport at a specific time. It would be great if this train would connect each major part of Jakarta. Altogether big improvement and upgrade to existing Airport.

If you're in Jakarta and want to spend a relaxing day outside the city, this is an excellent day trip! After being picked up in Jakarta we spent a relaxing day seeing the waterfalls and then the "little Bali" Hindu temple. Both sites were very nice, and taking the time to have tea with the Hindu priestess was an added bonus. I highly recommend the tour. The only downside and the reason for the four stars is the traffic trying to get back to Jakarta, which is not their fault but still detracts from the overall experience.
