    • Things to buy and where to get them

      Jakarta May 28, 2015 at 5:42 AM

      I'd like to get some crafts, I hear woodwork is a popular option, I have enough songket and batik items from Malaysia so I won't focus so much on that, although i will be getting some as well.

      I was thinking of getting some shadow puppets, wood boxes and carvings as gifts. Can someone give me an idea of what's available, common items and things to take home and buy as gifts, as well as where best to get them. I will be in Jakarta, Yogyakarta and Surabaya. I'm still in the early stages of planning my itinerary so I haven't gotten around to the shopping part yet. I know there are plenty of malls in Indonesia, Jakarta especially but there don't seem to be all that many markets.

      Hi,

      Heard that there's a nice lounge/club in Jakarta airport which we can enjoy buffet. Can anyone help me about this? My flight departing Jakarta is 8:30pm while hotel check out time is 12 noon. Since I may not do any touring but rather stay at the airport if there's a place for food and can relax.

      Follow Tour Guide or Explore by ourselves?

      Jakarta Jun 22, 2014 at 7:49 AM

      I' ll be travelling to Jakarta on Sept 2014. I'm thinking whether we should find a local tour guide or explore by ourselves. May I know whether the attractions or interesting places are all located at central Jakarta? Is there convenient to walk around or may be take the public transport? If we want to travel far from the central, how do we find the relevant transport?

      Public Swimming Pool in South Jakarta

      Jakarta Apr 14, 2014 at 12:23 AM

      I think I'm getting desperate in finding a swimming pool that suits my need near my place in Cipete

      - the one in arcadia is always crowded on weekends and quite spooky on weekday nights (and the bathrooms are rundown)
      - the one in talavera used dark natural stone tiling but only provide 1 underwater lamp so it's almost like swimming blind
      - the one in oktroi is quite ok but finding a parking space is stressing me out
      - the one in citos is also parking-space challenged
      (okay...I know I'm starting to sound like Ms.Nitpicky hahaha)

      Any other place you can recommend?
      I usually swim after office hours ( so after 6pm ) on weekdays
      Nothing fancy, just need decent changing rooms and easy parking.

      Kopaja No. 616, useful for tourists?

      Hello dear people from Jakarta,
      I am going to arrive on a Sunday in Jakarta.
      After placing my luggage in the hotel, I thought about going to the Betawi Cultural Village to watch some local dancing.

      I already learned that bus Kopaja No 616 is going from Pasar Minggu Terminal to there.
      Is it a wise idea, that I take this bus?
      Will the driver understand some English?

      how long does it take from the airport to the city?

      Jakarta Sep 16, 2013 at 6:20 AM

      So...I'm landing in Jakarta the day after tomorrow at around 8 pm, and I booked a hotel in north jakarta (close to jakarta utara, the hotel it's the Best Western Mangga Dua). I'm leaving the day after at 6 pm (intl. flight so have to be at the airport at 4,30 pm).
      Some people told me that it can take up to 3,4 hours from the airport to north jakarta, 'cause of the crazy heavy traffic.
      Is that true? I know it has heavy traffic but 3 or 4 hours seems like an exageration.

      Thanks!

      We are a retired couple and plan to visit Jakarta for 3 days as part of a 2 week stay in Java in July, 2013. I understand this is within the Ramada month. We will be flying in and out of Jakarta. Is staying at the Akmani Hotel in Tanah Abang going to be a problem in terms of touring, dining out and shopping during that time? We will be booking bus day tours and will also want to do some shopping for sports shoes. We also want to walk to restaurants. We will also be going by train to Bandung. Is there any advantage in terms of accessiblity and security, if we book at the Novotel in Mangga Dua or Alila Hotel?
