    Overall a great shopping experience for international tourists who need their usual global Brands. Very wide variety of spread of items, and the mall have successfully blended traditional Indonesian crafts and culture very well into an international shopping experience. Only thing is the Mall can be a bit hard to reach if you are at the wrong side of Jakarta given the traffic.

    I was looking forward to visiting the Masjid Istqlal in Jakarta simply for it's place in the historical context of Indonesia and it's architectural impact. What I wasn't expecting was the warm welcome and patience in answering my questions about the mosque and Islam. As a westerner with a christian-based childhood, I wasn't sure what to expect. In the United States there are a lot of preconceived notions about Islam and Muslims. Our experience was one of the highlights of our visit to Jakarta. The mosque is breathtaking in its size and scope. The tour was somewhat brief, but very informative. I felt that our guide would have taken as much time as needed to answer any questions we had.

    Masjid Istiqlal is a terrific highlight to your visit to Indonesia if you're interested in architecture, learning about Islam and it's role in the formation of modern Indonesia, and for the tranquility of the massive structure in the middle of busy and huge Jakarta.

    Salam!

    We arrived at the monument a little short of time having taken over a hour to get to it from our hotel by taxi. On arriving at the entrance we were told at least an hour possibly 2 hours to wait to get elevator to top, spent an enjoyable hour going around the museum in the base admiring the diorama's depicting the history of Indonesia

    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.

    The National Museum is a referential place for understanding the cultural mosaic of Indonesia and its complicated past merging Hindu-Buddhist traditions, Chinese trade, Muslim invasions, and the first historical contacts with Portuguese in the early 16th century, after that the Dutch colonial process that built up Batavia. The visitor is surprised at the museum entry with the Portuguese "padrão" (a stone column) with the arms of King Manuel (1495-1521), celebrating the treaty of Sunda Kelapa. Then, when you enter the large rooms and corridors of the museum, we are astonished by the vast amount of Hindu monuments, precious ceramics, woodcrafts, and textiles. It takes hours to construct an organized visual memory of all these thousands of objects. And this is the main problem of the National Museum: it still follows old 19th-century repositories of massive collections of all objects about historical cultures. The museum needs to select only some moving artifacts and use them to highlight us on the unique history of Java and later Indonesia. More virtual information and activities for children and teens are needed.

    Very Interesting visit and well worth a couple of hours of your time, lots to see some very good displays, currency from around the world and a great gold room, not real gold but very well presented, It was also good to get into air conditioned building after the heat outside. It is also free entry

    After many months staying at home we started going outdoors. We found TMII as the appropriate place, it was not too crowded, affordable and also a place that offered many educative experiences for children. We went to Taman Burung (bird park) and Museum ikan air tawar dan serangga (fresh water fish dan bug museum). All gave beautiful moments for us and there are so many other places inside TMII that we plan to go to later

    It's one of big , comfortable, citycenter train station , where you can get on,off intercity train to anywhere on jVa island ans commuter trains to connect whole jakarta metropolitan. The station itself has 3 storeys with lifts and escalators, restaurant, waiting area are spacious. Toilets are superclean. When walking pass the exit door, there are taxistand, that you can take on metered taxi without scam. And you can walk out to the main street to take becak, ojek or transjakarta bus station. It's next to monas monument in the merdeka square public park.

    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.

    as far as I know, the nearest MRT station to the shopping mall is Blok M BCA station. One can go there by online transportation offered by, such as, gojek or grab. I admire the varieties and number of restaurants it has. The place is also worthy to be a one-stop shopping place in Jakarta.

    Huge mall on South Jakarta Area. Literally huge as in they're about to expand the mall even bigger until the whole intersection surrounded by the mall I guess.

    Huge mall comes with complete tenants and restaurants, but I dont really like to go here actually, because it's always hard to look for parking space.

    Good selection of restaurants on upper floors and also options available on LG level. It was an OK selection of shopping options. Plenty coffee shops around.
    I like it here as it's a more quiet mall option in Jakarta.
