"Located on the northern coast of West Java, Jakarta is one of Asia's most prominent tourist destinations. Indonesia’s colourful capital, Jakarta is a city of contrasts. Blending the traditional and the modern, this bustling metropolis is rich with historic landmarks and tourist attractions. Jakarta's cultural showcase, Taman Ismail Marzuki, hosts a variety of Western and Indonesian performances, ranging from poetry readings and jazz concerts to premier showings of international films and gamelan concerts. Sunda Kelapa, the old Dutch port, is awash with magnificent Makassar schooners; Pasar Ikan, the early-morning fish market, is a colourful scene of busy, bartering crowds; Old Batavia features amazing 18th-century houses and streets; the Gereja Sion Church is the oldest in Jakarta; and the world famous zoo boasts exotic creatures like Komodo dragons to crowd favourites the orangutans. The sites don’t stop there. Be sure to visit the Indonesian National Museum, Jakarta History Museum, National Monument (Monas) and the Statue of Welcome (known locally as 'Hansel and Gretel')."
