What are the best places to visit in Jakarta?

My husband and I were thinking of Jakarta as our next destination. We have been searching information about the city prior to booking. I discovered through Westhill Consulting Travel & Tours that Singapore that the city was one of the must-tries. And I thought I could make use of some tips and advices from those who had first hand experiences. So my first concern is and mostly what I wanted to know is, what part of Jakarta is the best place to visit?

National Museum was great. I went there with my friend, whom like museum sightseeing much, and as what she said that this place is amazing and I admit that as soon as I walk from each room there. It will be great if the governor puts all the old statue into a glass which is will be good for the maintenance. But overall the experience was great, try it. Sorry about my bad English.

I agree, you must try the national museum, It is well maintained and not to be missed. The building itself was of Dutch architecture. Lots of artifacts from Hindu and Buddhist temple are showcased here. There were a lot of kids coming from all over the country to visit. Watch out for rip-off taxis there.

I am not into museums, so not a place for me to be. But I appreciate some of the artifacts and amazing to the types of houses they built. I enjoyed it. So I believe that you will too. I agree about the rip-off taxis. Get your hotel concierge to tell you the approximate prices.

If you are into golf then you must try Royale Jakarta, it is a beautiful golf course with international standard and excellent facilities. If you are in Jakarta, it's the best place to play golf. Really nice golf course in the middle of the city. I believe it's the best-maintained golf course in the area, with precision cut fairways and beautiful landscaping. The blue / black tees are long and difficult, especially with the super slippery greens. But, it's worth to play. It's one of my favorite courses in Jakarta. Highly recommended but bring lots of money.

Yes, Royale Jakarta it is!!! It was designed as a championship golf course; this is not an easy course especially for my embarrassing handicap. But the contour, the challenging, the maintenance on the course is very good. The club house design is nice. They also have a very nice service. I agree it is expensive.

If you will be travelling with kids then you must try Kidzania. It is outstanding for kids 4 to 14, experience, activities, participation for kids to role play in real life adult roles, it’s an amazing concept. Everyone should take their kids to KIDZANIA, Jakarta is one of the first international KidZanai's but now they are in many places like Bangkok, KL, Seoul, Dubai, Osaka and about 15 others... Great family edutainment.

Are you the type who loves beautiful architecture? Then appreciate the European-style cathedral in the bustling city of Jakarta. It is interesting that Jakarta's only cathedral is located just right across the largest mosque in Indonesia. The cathedral dates back to the Dutch colonial era. The church is open 7 days a week for anyone who wish to visit. It's definitely a nice quiet place of worship.

It was an awesome relic structure in the midst of Jakarta and in the vicinity of the 6th Biggest Mosque as well. Amazing structure inside out. Great place to visit. Just a warning though, be very cautious about scams.

I am into art so for the greatest place to visit in Jakarta is the Art:1 art gallery. I love the architectural design of the building and the artwork inside is simply marvelous; add friendly and helpful staff and a cup of coffee on the roof area of the building, definitely a nice place for art lovers go.
