Things to do in Jakarta
Head to the city's National Museum of Indonesia, housed in the iconic Elephant Building, to learn about the country’s history. Visit the National Monument, dedicated to Indonesia’s independence, which was constructed by President Sukarno. Admire local Indonesian art at the National Gallery of Indonesia and enjoy the local theatre scene at the Gedung Kesenian Jakarta (the Jakarta Arts Theatre).
Getting Around Jakarta
Get around like the locals do: take a Bajaj, a vehicle similar to an Indonesian tuk tuk, or an Ojek, a speedy motorbike. Spot the Ojek drivers easily as they usually wear fluorescent-coloured vests. Otherwise hire a taxi or make use of the expansive bus system. Choose Cathay Pacific when you fly to Jakarta – our regular service via Hong Kong will get you there in comfort.
