    What to Expect
    Our tour guide will pick you up around 9am from your hotel lobby centrally located Jakarta.  We will start our day tour by visiting Glodok China Town . Called “Glodok” is the oldest China town in Jakarta. Open markets, small shop with typical old Chinese Architecture, tiny alleys and charming cracked make this area a photographer’s paradise. Visit Petak Sembilan Chinese temple dedicated to the Buddhist goddess of mercy, Kuan Yin. Built around 1650.
    Then pay a visit to Puppet Museum. An old Dutch colonial house which contain great collections of Javanese leather “Wayang” puppets. Wooden “Golek” puppets and mask of Indonesia and some other part of the world. The former old Dutch Governor General graveyard also was here.
    Then move for enjoying Puppet Show. A very short time show for the Puppet performance and you will be exhausted entertaint by the “Dalang” or the Puppet player, the show performance in English, here after the show finished you also could know how to make a puppet.
    Continue on to Jakarta Historical Museum. Originally built by Dutch in 1707 as Jakarta City Hall or “stad huis”. Furnished with antique furnishing, porcelain, old map and portraits, under water jail and other items used by former Dutch Governor General.
    Then move on to Kota Intan Drawbridge. At the north end of Kali Besar lays a small 17th century Dutch drawbridge, the last in the city, called the Kota Intan Drawbridge.
    Finally, you will visit to Sunda Kelapa Harbor. A kilometre north of Taman Fatahillah, the old port of Sunda Kelapa is full of magnificent Makassar schooners (pinisi). The dock scene here has barely changed for centuries, and porters unload cargo from these sailing ships by hand and trolley. Sadly, the port itself is rundown and its waters grotesquely polluted these days.

    Tony & Agus (the guides) brought me around the Jakarta Old Town (called Kota Tua) and it was an awesome experience. They're very knowledgeable guides who made the day pass by so quickly!
