The tour guide will pick you up at the Hotel in Jakarta Area. Visit Merdeka Square is a focal point for Jakarta city, which has many government buildings such as the ministry office, the presidential office, and even the landmark of Jakarta (National Monument) located in the middle of Merdeka Square. Visit the National Monument in the middle of Merdeka Square is a 132 Meter tall monument with a gold-leaf flame on top, symbolizing the nation’s independence. This is one of the highlights of Jakarta City. The monument's basement houses an exhibit of 48 dioramas depicting the history of Indonesia from prehistoric times to the present. (Every Monday, National Monument is closed. You can only visit the outside area of the monument). Visit the Jakarta Cathedral, built in gothic style and dates back to 1891. It has a high tower with high windows decorated with glass paintings. Inside the church are 3 altars that together form a semi-circle. It also has a beautiful old altar that reflects sound like a conch shell. Visit Istiqlal Mosque as the largest mosque in Southeast Asia and the sixth-largest mosque in the world regarding worshipper capacity. Located in the city center, almost opposite the National Cathedral, the Mosque is also meant to be a symbol of peace and religious tolerance. Note: Istiqlal mosque is closed every Friday. Visit The old town of Batavia used to be the center of Dutch rule when colonizing Indonesia. Therefore in this area, there were former governor's offices, banks, hospitals, post offices, and courthouses, which are now converted into museums. Old Town Batavia will make you feel like you are in Amsterdam because the entire building in this area has a Dutch style. Meet puppet masters, learn about puppet making from Indonesia, learn how to play, and see wayang collections from various regions in Indonesia. The Jakarta old harbor is located at the head of Batavia. En route, the old “Drawbridge” from the 17 Century. This harbor was first used by the Portuguese and Dutch when they arrived in Indonesia.
