Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Java  /  Jakarta

Big Durian

The capital and largest city of Indonesia, Jakarta offers the kind of cultural, historical, and natural stimulation expected from the most populous city in Southeast Asia. Sightseeing in Jakarta takes curious travelers to old districts rich in colonial past, with architectural highlights and museums housing treasured artifacts. The towering minarets of the city's mosques contrast well with modern skyscrapers in the thriving commercial districts, highlighting the meeting of tradition and modernity on which the capital is built. Explore the local Betawi cuisine in restaurants and from street-side vendors, with dishes reflecting the complex social history of the city and taking influences from a range of Asian cooking traditions. Our Indonesia vacation builder allows you to plan your trip to Jakarta and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
