Jakarta

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. Jakarta is in Java. In the build up to your vacation in Jakarta, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Indonesia day trip planner.

Where to stay in Jakarta

A wealth of choices exists in Jakarta, a sightseeing destination in its own right and a gateway to the rest of the country. For luxury options, try the Lingkar Kuningan area, where new developments provide rooms with excellent views of the city. Head north to find more affordable hotels, offering comfortable rooms in local, non-chain establishments. Up in the Kemang district you'll find an abundance of backpacker and budget accommodations, such as hostels and rental apartments, in areas known for their small cafes, trendy bars, and nightlife.
