Jakarta Old Town reviews
This is an old small square in the old town of Jakarta. It is surrounded by beautiful historical architectures. There were many tourists and local. It was too hot to hang around I didn't stay long... more »
Jakarta Old Town is interesting to visit while in town that is so busy - this is a great place to see and enjoy! more »
Interesting place to visit. Many artists wearing costume and performing. Many colonial buildings around and many museums to visit.
Nice to watch locals ride bikes and hang out here, but not all the museums in the area are well maintained.
