Jakarta’s rich history and culture
If you’re interested in Jakarta’s history, Kota district is a must. In the old city centre there are still many buildings that bear witness to the days of Dutch colonial rule. Be sure to visit Medan Merdeka. Surrounded by the Istana Merdeka (presidential palace), the National Museum and the Immanuel Church, this square is a green oasis in the city. Istiqlal Mosque, Southeast Asia’s largest mosque, is also located there. Jakarta is the ideal destination for a city trip, or the starting point for a longer vacation in Indonesia. Treat yourself: book a flight to Jakarta now!
The Thousand Islands and abundant nature
If you really want to relax, you’ll find beautiful nature and white sand beaches just outside Jakarta. Take a boat to the Thousand Islands, an archipelago just off the Jakarta coast. Discover the splendid coral reefs while diving, or seek out the many bird species on Bird Island. A definite must-see on Java is, of course, the Borobudur. Built in the 9th century, this Buddhist temple, the world’s largest, is one of Indonesia’s most famous tourist attractions. This monument is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

When to go
Curated for you
Moments before landing at Jakarta airport, you gaze down on dozens of little islands in the Java Sea: this is the delightful Pulau Seribu archipelago — blessed with palm trees, sandy beaches and coral reefs. And even though some of the islands are as close as half an hour by boat from Jakarta, you’ll feel like you’re worlds away.
ARTS & CULTURE
Merdeka ('Freedom') Square – Lapangan Merdeka – is more than just a centrally located square in Jakarta. It is the place from where the Dutch governed the country in colonial times and where later the Indonesians proudly celebrated their independence. That is why this green square is fringed with colonial buildings, historic museums and monuments which continue to be reminders of the Indonesian struggle for independence.
