Start your Jakarta shore excursion as you exit from your cruise ship. At the ship's Pier, you will be greeted by your professional guide. Once you hop in your comfortable, air-conditioned minivan you will set off on your shore excursion. Begin your shore excursion with a drive through the streets of Jakarta’s historic district and pass by the Dutch-style structures dating back to the 17th-century. Visit Jakarta History Museum (Fatahillah Museum). The museum is housed in the old town hall of Batavia, reminding onlookers of Indonesia’s time as a Dutch colony. After that, explore Jakarta’s Chinatown, Glodok and a vibrant banking, trading, and entertainment hub. Learn about the history of the Batavian Chinese from your guide. Continue to the National Museum. Admire the museum’s costumes, musical instruments, model houses, and fine bronzes from the Hindu-Javanese period. The museum also houses stone pieces from the temples Central Java and a superb display of Chinese ceramics. Afterward, visit Sunda Kelapa Harbor, once the heart of Jakarta's maritime trade. During the colonial era, the harbor was known as the “Roads of Batavia” and was the only entrance to Batavia. If time allows, we will explore Istiqlal Mosque, the largest mosque in Southeast Asia and Jakarta Cathedral, a Roman Catholic Cathedral. After your shore excursion is finished, you will be taken back to your cruise terminal before your ship departs, ensuring a relaxing end to an exciting day.
