Hotels in Jakarta

Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia is a honey pot for tourists with its thriving cultural centre. Positioned on the northwest coast of Java, it is also one of the most populated cities in Indonesia. Jakarta Hotels are numerous and varied, offering basic to luxury accommodation to fit most budgets.

Jakarta Old Town, known as Kota, or Old Batavia was dubbed ‘the jewel of Asia' by visiting European sailors, during its heyday in the 16th century. As the headquarters of the Dutch East India Company, the buildings reflect their colonial past, although sadly much of it is crumbling away. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it's still possible to wonder the streets and admire the Old Batavia architecture, such as the Jakarta History Museum, the Post Office and the Maritime Museum.

Check out the National Monument, standing proud in Merdeka Square to commemorate the fight for Indonesian Independence. Merdeka Palace, the official residence for the President of the Republic of Indonesia, stands nearby. So too does the Jakarta Cathedral, with its fine masonry and Neo Gothic design.

Cultural Highlights:

To visit a classical concert hall, try Aula Simfonia Jakarta in Kemayoran or the Gedung Kesenian Jakarta near Pasar Baru. For some traditional Javanese Wayang Orang performances, try the Wayang Orang Bharata theatre. The city is a cultural hub with various International Fairs and Festivals held annually throughout the year including an International Film Festival, Jazz Festival and Fashion Week.

Jakarta is full to bursting with museums. If you're interested in science, try the Research and Technology Information Centre, then there's the Transportation Museum, Komodo Indonesian Fauna Museum and Insect Museum to name but a few.

Take a trip to the Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, located east of the city where life in Indonesia is depicted via textiles, artefacts and architectural design. There's also an Imax cinema, cable cars and lake to explore.
