City landmarks…

The first place that you will visit is the National Museum of Indonesia. The locals also recognize it as Elephant Museum because there’s an elephant sculpture made of bronze medal at the front park of the museum. The sculpture was a present from King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) of Thailand who visited the museum in 1871.

Next, we will visit National Monument. In Indonesian, it is Monumen Nasional and the people usually call it in short “Monas”. Monas is a monument built to commemorate the struggle of Indonesian heroes fighting the colonial domination. The ideas to build Monas came from the first president of Indonesia, Ir. Soekarno, with the help of Sudarsono and F. Silaban as the architect, and Ir. Rooseno as the consultant. The monument takes up an area with a width of 80 hectares. President Soekarno officially began the construction of Monas on 17th August 1961, and publicly open on 12th July 1971. Also, we will visit Grand Mosque Istiqlal and the Grand Cathedral.

Old times Jakarta…

After that, we continue to visit Fatahillah Square in the historical center known as Old Batavia or Kota Tua (Old Town) which will bring back memories of old times. In Fatahillah Square, there is Jakarta History Museum. It provides information about Jakarta since prehistoric age to current age in a creative way, through the collections of the museum.

Next up is the old but gold, Sunda Kelapa Harbor. It has been well known since the 12th century, but the existence estimated to be since the 5th century. Along Sunda Kelapa Harbor, you could see Phinisi ships in a line, which have unique shape and the body painted in some different colors. Phinisi ships were coming from many regions of Indonesia, carrying logs, rattan, copra and other agricultural products to Jakarta. When Phinisi goes back from Jakarta, it carries construction materials like steel and cement. You could see the hectic of loading and unloading activities that is still conducted traditionally at Sunda Kelapa. Lastly we will spend some time in Chinatown of Jakarta. At the end of the tour, we will transfer you back to hotel/airport.
