Hi everyone, I am Fajar from Jakarta and I have been guiding the travelers/tourists for the walkingtour since 2017 around Jakarta and Bogor. Here I'm gonna introduce you to my walkingtour service in Jakarta. The meeting point is at a cafe around Cikini area or in the Lobby of Capsule Hotel New Batavia in Cikini area - Central Jakarta. Then I will make my guests to experience the public transportations as the Commuter Line Train or Bus Trans Jakarta. I will provide the Transport's Cards for my guests to use/borrow, so my guests don't have to buy the train's card. First, we will visit the Jakarta OldTown Square that is located in West Jakarta, there I will tell my guests the histories of the Oldtown histories and the histories of the Dutch Old Buildings. Second, we will visit the Jakarta Old Port/ Old Harbor that is called Sunda Kelapa Harbor/Port by walking from the Oldtown Square. We will rent the small boat and make the boat tour for like 20 minutes - 30 minutes around the harbor then I will tell my guests the Old Harbor Histories. This Boat costs Rp.100.000/boat and per boat is enough for 5 people max. Third, we will visit the Glodok China Town that is walking distance from the Oldtown or the Old Harbor. In China Town we will visit the local traditional market and the Buddhist praying Temple named Vihara Dharma Bhakti, and also we can taste some local snacks, or even to have lunch. Fourth, we will visit the biggest Mosque in South East Asia named Istiqlal Mosque. Here, we will enter the Istiqlal Mosque, so this Istiqlal Mosque has their own tourguide, and the tourguide will lend us the special Clothe/Outfit then the Tourguide will show us around inside the Mosque and tell us the histories of the Mosque for around like 30 minutes. In front of the Mosque we can visit the Cathedral Church if you want. Fifth, we will visit the Monument Nasional (Monas), here we can enter the Monas and this costs only Rp.8.000 per person. Inside of Monas is a Diorama Historical Museum. And these are the places that we can visit on the Walkingtour with me. In Jakarta, there are some specific days that some places will be closed, like every Friday the Istiqlal Mosque is closed for visitors, and every Monday the Monument Nasional and all Museums in Jakarta are closed. So, the first stop or visit will be change sometimes depends on the situation. For the Lunch, we can stop at any Cafes/Restaurants in China town or Oldtown. I will see you all soon, Fajar my whatsapp +628118176661
