Start your journey through Jakarta’s rich past with a visit to Glodok, the heart of Chinatown. This busy hub of banking, trading, and entertainment includes the Petak Sembilan Chinese Temple, dedicated to Kuan Yin, the Buddhist goddess of mercy, built around 1650. Next, check out the Kota Intan Drawbridge, the last of its kind in Jakarta. It offers a glimpse into the stylish 17th-century residential neighborhood along the Ciliwung River. Then, head over to the Museum Bahari Jakarta in the historic Sunda Kelapa harbor. It showcases Indonesia’s maritime heritage with exhibits in 17th-century Dutch warehouses. You can enjoy panoramic harbor views from the museum's tower. Next, check out the Fatahillah Museum in the old town hall of Batavia. It's got maps, antiques, and porcelain that tell the story of Dutch rule in Indonesia. Just a heads-up: the museum is closed on Mondays and public holidays. You could also check out the antique market on Jalan Surabaya instead. Finally, the Museum Wayang has an extensive collection of traditional Indonesian puppets and interactive displays on puppet-making.
