Had a chance to spend there couple of hours. I am not a history lover, so didn’t bother to go to museum and stuff. The place looks quite popular among the locals. Couldn’t see many tourist though. Good place to chill out with friends on weekend.

... to enjoy the architecture and ambiance from the older colonial days, but the aesthetics I find much more appealing than the modern hub bub of much of Jakarta. See great old Dutch architecture, and choose from a variety of different museums. We had to go a long way to get here from our central hotel, but worth the trek. Festive and a combination of locals and tourists enjoying themselves.

We decided to visit this place as our long-holiday escape reaching by KRL from Cikarang within 1.5 hours. It’s quite crowded because it was saturday plus long-holiday, so people from different places might gather around. The place offers instagramable spots so we can just enjoy the time being there.

Lots of things happening here. Museums, cafes and bars. Everything is within walking distance from the main square. Watch out for the brightly coloured bicycles!
