Grab a freshly roasted coffee to go at the swanky Jakartan coffee joint; Tanamera, before getting your step count up on one of the Good Guide’s Free Walking Tours. Out of the six tours offered, the City Centre and Old Town are the most popular with first-timers looking to orientate themselves and brush up on some Indonesian history.
Post-tour grab a well-earnt lunch at one of Jakarta’s many cheap street-side warungs. Sate Padang Ajo Ramon is an especially popular place with supposedly some of the best sate around.
Then sate in hand hit up the Grand Indonesia Mall. Beyond the shopping this massive building’s 56 floors are worth an explore being one of Jakarta’s Most Iconic Landmarks. Shopping wise, it basically has everything you can possibly imagine ever needing and all at bargain prices that would put vendors back home out of business.
Finally, finish your day on its roof at the Skye Bar. This swanky Bar & Restaurant offers some of the best views of Jakarta. So put your feet up and your shopping down and stop for a moment to take it all in.
