Attractions

Jakarta beckons you to the mystical east

Ancol

Ancol is one of the capital's true oceanfront delights. Here you will find a marina, an eighteen-hole public golf course, Pasar Seni and three themed parks.

Pasar Seni is an excellent place to watch painters, woodcarvers, leather crafters and other artisans at work. There are often free music, dance and puppetry performances on the central outdoor stage.

Kebun Binatang Ragunan

This wonderful zoo houses many of Indonesia’s rare and endangered wildlife species, including the Komodo Dragon, the Sumateran Tiger, Orangutans, and the Cendrawasih bird.

The atmosphere is extremely pleasant, with long shaded walkways winding among the impressive exhibits.

Monas

Standing at 125 metres and topped with 35 kilograms of gold, Monas is commonly identified as the most renowned and prominent landmark.

Monas was built during an era of nationalism and honours the heroism of the then-Indonesians who battled bravely. It is a busy site on weekends with people arriving on its 80-hectare lands for activities such as picnics, cycling and jogging.
