The island of Java is famed for its coffee, volcanoes, water buffalo (yes, we’re serious) and, of course, Jakarta. The capital city of Indonesia is perfect for your next holiday extravaganza. Why? Because you can shop for pure silk clothing, see eye-to-eye with cavemen (or their skulls, anyway) in a museum and eat food you’ve never tried before.
This fantastic city is waiting for you. Browse Wotif’s splendid offers on accommodation in Jakarta and send us a postcard when you get there.
Immediately upon arrival, you need to get yourself behind the wheel with one of Wotif’s Jakarta car hire deals. Once that’s taken care of, head to the National Museum of Indonesia and get yourself cultured. The collections here have some pretty wild stuff in their Prehistoric Collection. That’s where you’ll see the cavemen. And you thought you felt old.
If you want to go souvenir hunting, make your way 4km south and explore the bustling flea market in Menteng. You can buy yourself a pure silk sarong and top it off with a shiny Bali silver necklace for a few rupiahs.
When you get hungry, find a food vendor and scarf down plates of jackfruit in coconut milk, fried chicken, boiled egg and buffalo skin. That particular dish is known as Nasi Gudeg, and it’s nothing but greatness.
Do you feel like venturing outside the capital for a day? Great! Hop in your Jakarta car rental and hit the road for the 155km drive southeast to Bandung. You’ll find all sorts of cool things to do, like visit the zoo, shop in the denim stores along Riau Street or visit the tea plantations that surround Patenggang Lake. Wow, this place is unreal.
You have to get around Indonesia’s capital somehow, and the best way is to organise Wotif car hire in Jakarta. No need to mess about with taxis, city buses or even walking. When you’re ready to go, check out our amazing deals on Jakarta packages and book your time away today.
