Visit Jakarta

Jakarta is the vibrant and bustling capital of Indonesia. Located on the northwest coast of Java, Jakarta has a population of over 10 million people. With its colorful culture, world-class cuisine and variety of attractions, Jakarta is a popular destination for both tourists and business travelers alike.

The historic Kota district features some of the city's oldest buildings, many dating back to the Dutch colonial period. Stroll through this exotic district where you can find markets selling traditional crafts as well as delicious street food. After exploring Kota, visitors should also check out National Monument Park or Taman Mini Indonesia Indah which houses several cultural sites from all over Indonesia in one sprawling park.

Jakarta also holds an important place in Indonesian history with its role in the Declaration of Independence on August 17th 1945 at Merdeka Palace (Istana Negara). This momentous event marked a turning point in Indonesian history after hundreds of years under colonial rule and remains an important part of Indonesian identity today.
