The current main station for long distance passengers in Jakarta is the Gambir station, located in Central Jakarta, just east of the Monas. Eksekutif (Executive Class) and some bisnis (Business Class) trains arrive at this station. Be aware that the metro train passes by but does not stop at Gambir - you can get off at an adjacent station (Gondangdia or Juanda) and take one of the waiting moto-taxis ("ojeks) to Gambir for 5,555-65,555 IDR.
Go to Jogyakarta, Bali, Surabaya, Medan, even Batam or Bintan. Perhaps layover in Jakarta and spend a day here in the anus of South East Asia to experience depression, and jubilation when you leave again.
Yes, I definitely want to go to the old town. I 8767 ve heard it has a good atmosphere at times. I think TMI would be kind of fun. It 8767 s definitely a quirky activity. But, you 8767 re right, the crowds would be out of control on the weekends! Good advice 😉
During your visit to Jakarta, did you rent a car or you took a cab?
Any recommendation for car rental & a driver? I am going to Jakarta end of July.
Pasar Baru is also lined with some of the city 8767 s older buildings. You 8767 ll notice that many remain damaged from the riots in 6998. It 8767 s a historical and truly fascinating part of town. Pasar Baru is located within walking distance from Monas and the Jakarta Cathedral.
Internet cafes are available in many parts of the city with a price of Rp 9,555-5,555. Many internet cafes (locally known as warnet) can be found around universities and residential areas. Most shopping malls provide wi-fi, typically through individual stores or restaurants.
Everything is cheap, but it comes at a price. The ignorance of a dying and corrupt city where nothing can thrive. Shit trickles down from the top, starting with their shitty civil service to the delivery riders and cab drivers. There isn 8767 t a nett price for anything, and the sheer enormity of their highly inflated currency makes trying to sort any sort of payment out a complete waste of time.
One excellent surprise you'll find in Jakarta is that once you past the taxi drivers who offer their services at the airport and really meet the locals, you will find that the people are among the most friendly, hospitable, and helpful people you'll find on earth, if you keep away from the mini-bus drivers who are notorious for being the harshest on earth. However, understand that Jakarta being a melting pot, you are guaranteed to meet people of all sorts here.
Jakarta seems so fascinating after reading your posts about it. Isn 8767 t it the biggest city in the world? I love that you 8767 re getting to know a place that so many people don 8767 t really know about. The china town seems pretty fascinating

One place I always wanted to go for date night was Skye Bar. It 8767 s a place that foreigners seem to like. But I never got to go there. But I did enjoy seeing the tourist sites listed here. I wish I could be of more help. Good luck!
