    This place offers an underwater viewing experience. It features many fascinating sea creatures and is very entertaining, thanks to its design and ambiance. If you are in Jakarta, be sure not to miss it.

    Great Islamic Center. Nicely situated and several daily events in Ramadan. The Taraweeh Prayers were really great and reasonable in length

    I was so glad that this huge complex got renovated after unmaintained for so long. The landscape, some museums and traditional houses were already refreshed and updated but some were still need improvement. The Bird Park and the Komodo Museum had been renovated into awesome attractions. I do hope that they will renovate the Indonesia Science Center (PP-IPTEK), Transportation Museum as well as other museums too in the near future.
    The toilets are now easy to find, scattered in all buildings even in the parking lot and they are all clean.
    Oh, don't forget to prepare your seat before 6pm in the Plaza Promenade to watch the dancing fountain Tirta Cerita that will tell you Indonesia famous folklores.

    I've been going here since I was very little, it's by far the most famous amusement park in Indonesia. I definitely recommend going here and well worth the price especially for tourists. However, it is quite run-down and many rides may require maintenance. When it rains, it is a very wet experience haha. Do use extra sunscreen and bring an umbrella (as well as an extra change of clothes) if you plan on going.

    The National Museum of Indonesia provides visitors with an insight into Indonesia’s long history in cultural heritage from prehistoric days up to today. The museum houses an impressive collection of many artifacts covering Indonesia’s Prehistory, Archaeology, Ethnography, Geography and Historical Relics. The Museum provides a good starting place to get a feeling of Indonesian culture prior to traveling through the countryside.

    We wandered up here from Cikini on foot and took the train back after our visit. You have to walk to an underground tunnel to start your visit. Then annoyingly they make you buy a Jakcard to put your tickets on. An extra cost we didn’t need as we won’t ever use this card again, but at least they took my student card so we got a discount. The day was not busy as it was Ramadan so we got up to the top yard easily. The views are good. It is an interesting place but still don’t understand why they can’t just sell you a paper entry ticket.

    The best Museum I visited in Jakarta and was pretty good about having English translations of all the information.

    There are several 2 hour slots throughout the day. I went from 1 pm to 3 pm. Before entering you do need to scan a QR code that brings up a sign-up form. If there was an English version of the form, I never found it.

    Instead I used the Indonesian form and Google translate to fill it out and be eligible to take the tour.

    I am not a regular church goer, but my sister attends Mass every week. We took a luxury taxi from the Mandarin Oriental and it cost less than $20 Aus. It took about 30 minutes to get there. Coming back, we took a Blue Bird taxi and it was only $10 Aus.

    The experience was wonderful. The inside and outside of the cathedral was packed, hundreds of people everywhere. The choir led the singing and it was lovely. The men and women who assisted with communion wore white robes with large purple satin collars (maybe purple for Lent). After communion all the children arrive. Ages ranged from newborn babies to young teenagers, accompanied by parents if very young. They go to the priest for a blessing. It was very sweet.

    The Cathedral is beautiful. I loved the stained glass windows.

    We also popped into St Teresa’s Church near Sarinah Mall on another day. We were welcomed by lovely people who were ushering people who had come for reconciliation. We declined. There is a school attached and I loved the girls pretty uniforms, very different and much more stylish. The boys wore shirts of the same fabric.

    We took the train here and had a wander around. It was really hot so we didn’t do much more thing the canal and the square. Some interesting old Dutch buildings. An area with huge potential.

    It's only an hour away by boat from Jakarta. You can do snorkel and diving, though the water is pretty muddy and water isn't very clear. Still it's good if you want to get some sea without going too far from the capital.

    Kokas is a nice mall to visit with family, friends or alone. There are so many tenants and events here. Especially if you're looking for (unique/intersting) food. You can find food society, little tokyo, eat republic and many cafés here.
