A city to be explored
The capital of Indonesia might not be the most talked-about Asian megalopolis. But the truth is, it is definitely an overlooked gem, with plenty of amazing spots for unforgettable travel photography!
The most populous city in Southeast Asia has plenty to do, whether you stay for just one day or devote more time to explore the ins and outs of Indonesia’s capital.
A sometimes chaotic but always lively city, Jakarta has a mix of interesting and curious experiences just waiting for you.
When planning your trip to Jakarta, there are a few activities you can’t leave out of your itinerary.
- Visit a museum – Indonesia has a rich history, and nothing better than exploring it through the several museums around Jakarta. From ancient mythology to the colonial times under Dutch rule, you can learn much about this fascinating place.
- Experience the nightlife – Jakarta offers many exciting venues to enjoy the Indonesian nightlife. Dance alongside locals and tourists, enjoy the city lights from a rooftop bar and sip on delicious tropic cocktails. Are you a crazy party-goer? Or do you prefer a chill night out? Despite your answer, don’t worry: Jakarta has something for everyone.
- Try local foods – experiment authentic Indonesian food like a local would do! Indonesian cuisine is an amazing combination of influences from China, India and Europe, adapted to the local costumes. Fried foods, known as goregan, can be found everywhere – and it is a must while in Jakarta. And if you are a coffee lover, you might want to try the exquisite – and expensive – Kopi Luwak. Yes, that famous coffee recipe prepared with coffee beans digested by Civet cats (and by digested, we mean… pooped).
Excited yet? We hope so! Jakarta is a special city with many surprises in store for you. It is also a beautiful and photogenic place.
As you stroll through the harbor and Ancol area, or visit the classical-looking streets of Kota Tua, be sure to capture each amazing moment.
