Thought to be operational since before the 13th century; this is a fascinating location that preserves the history of Jakarta. Travel to the oldest China town area in Indonesia, Glodok, which was once located just outside the city walls before it was relocated. The area is characterized by winding lanes, slanting red tiled roofs, small dark shops and acts as a hub for the Chinese community. You will also get to visit the oldest Chinese temple in Jakarta, the Golden Wisdom Taoist temple called Jin De Yuan, which dates back to the 1650s.

You will be picked up for driving through one of Jakarta's suburbs and its lovely countryside. This tour takes you to Bogor, 60km south of Jakarta. The area is also known as 'Buitenzorg,' which is Dutch for 'without care.' This stems from the fact that Bogor was an affluent neighborhood for the wealthy Dutch residents.

If you are connecting to a domestic flight, check your ticket: since January 2014, Jakarta's domestic traffic began moving to East Jakarta Halim Perdanakusuma Airport (HLP).

 

Jakarta Airport services include:


  • Duty free
  • Shopping areas - all terminals, shopping arcade in T1C
  • Reading corners - waiting rooms of Terminal 2D, 2E and 2F
  • PGA calibre golf nearby

 

To avoid scams, if you use the Visa on Arrival (VoA) service, have the exact cash payment ready (currently USD 25), to avoid claims of no change. You can pay by credit card, but this may not always be available. Ignore any requests for any additional fees. Sometimes immigration officers may ask for a bribe to provide you with a visa; avoid paying this bribe, as you'll have to pay another one while leaving the country. 

 

Beware of any involvement with baggage porters, as most are talented scammers, intent on cheating and misleading passengers. If you do need help, porters should be paid a minimum of IDR 20,000 to carry bags. Better yet, travel light or find a trolley and deal with it yourself.

You are advised to contact your airline with any special requirements before arriving in Indonesia.
