Monas – The National Monument
Located in Merdeka Square, the 132m high National Monument is a celebration of the country’s independence and is revered across Indonesia. Taking 14 years to build and opening in 1975 under the first President of Indonesia, Sukarno; for a small admission fee visitors can get some of the best views over the city from the observation deck.
Merdeka Square also forms the cultural heart of this sprawling city and covers an area of over one kilometre square. Surrounding the square are several impressive government buildings and the National Museum of Indonesia containing an impressive collection of relics and artefacts pertaining to the history and culture of the country.
Insider’s Tip: Entry into the museum is included in the price of the monument ticket giving visitors a full day of activities in one!
Istiqlal Mosque and Jakarta Cathedral
In close proximity to Merdeka Square lies the largest mosque in Southeast Asia, Istiqlal Mosque. With a capacity of 200,000 people, a beautiful marble courtyard, and decorative minarets, the imposing building is a sight to behold. Inside the mosque, enormous columns support the central dome which was erected in 1978.
Directly opposite the Istiqlal Mosque is the 1901 Jakarta Cathedral, with the proximity showing the tolerance of the Indonesian people of all religions. Dwarfed by the neighbouring mosque, the interior is still a beautiful recreation of the Catholic cathedrals in Europe, and it remains the head of the Catholic Church in Jakarta still.
Get away from the bustle of the city and have a day of pure fun and frivolity! The Ancol Dreamland theme park is the perfect escape for those travelling with children, or those that are a big kid themselves.
Set on the north coast of the city in its own compound, Ancol includes several parks such as Atlantic Water Adventure, Seaworld, Fantasy World, and Ocean Dream. On top of the theme parks, the complex also incorporates a golf course, aquariums, and a bowling alley for those not looking to get wet or ride rollercoasters.
Holidays to Jakarta do not have to be just about the city itself, as to the north are the Thousand Islands. Golden beaches on secluded islands, some with rustic resorts and restaurants, provide those looking for an escape.
Marine life abounds in the warm waters of the Java Sea making many of these islands perfect for snorkelling and diving. Pulau Pramuka in particular is a nature reserve for the greenback turtle which is protected in their natural coral reef environment.
With 16 meeting spaces and a tradition of fantastic service and comfort, the Shangri-La Hotel is perfectly suited to your business needs.
The Hermitage, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel
With colonial charm and first-class service, The Hermitage is well located in Central Jakarta. This 1920s historic property is the perfect blend of the old and the new.
The nearby islands of Sumatra and Borneo are famous for their natural reserves with animal adventure holidays popular to see orangutans, Sumatran tigers, rhinos, and elephants. Easily accessible from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, as well as Jakarta, these less-developed islands are perfect for those looking for an off-the-beaten-track holiday.
Those looking for a more tropical beach holiday will be drawn to Bali with its palm tree shores, laid-back lifestyle, and shopping culture. Alternatively, use Jakarta as a city break en route to Australia flying with Garuda Airlines.

Several airlines have flights from the UK to Jakarta but only Garuda Indonesia offer a direct service from London. This 5 star airline, part of the SkyTeam alliance, emphasises the importance of service and comfort with exceptional results.

Airlines such as Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways through South East Asia offer the quickest routes while Emirates through Dubai, Cathay Pacific through Hong Kong and Qatar Airways through Doha take slightly longer.
