4 Days Jakarta 2016

On Marcos' 2nd visit to Jakarta, he explores Central Jakarta, Little India, Chinatown, & Kota Tua Dutch-colonial district.

This 4-day trip in Jakarta kicked off my Indonesia #TripofWonders tour & 1-Month Indonesia trip. I arrived a few days before our big tour and enjoyed exploring Central Jakarta.

I went to a few places that I had visited before like Kota Tua (Old Batavia), the Dutch-colonial district, Monas National Monument, Jalan Thamrin (Central Business District) & Jalan Jaksa (Backpacker District). Keen on seeing more of the city, I also did an Indian food crawl of Pasar Baru (Little India) and wandered around Glodok (Chinatown).
