Just look at the many links on the LEFT SIDE MENU on this page, I suggest you read some articles on 'Things To Do'.

Also, reading some articles from 'Top Questions on Top Right Side of the page can also help you to give idea on what the city has to offer.

The "Jakarta Itineraries" can give you idea on how the trip can be arranged according to your needs.

They're all collected by Destination Experts of Jakarta, so you can rest assured the info are always up-to-date.

Don't forget to open the map (e.g. you can get free from Google) to plan your trip wisely.

Hope this will help.

Dear oUtz_kGk,

You are only one of wweeeeeelll so many visors who initially expressed your interest in culture, dancing [performance and asked about smth memorable to do to make your trip a special one. From my heart string I thank you for the effort. It is such a rarity to see visitor who asks about smth aside from Tanah Abang.

About how to start, just follow Cirque`s advice. Build your own mind and came back with concrete questions. We have all the willingness to help.

It really depends on your interests.

If you have only 3 days and you want to do some shopping you're not really going to have much time anyway.

I'd recommend a walk around Kota if you are intersted in the history of the city. You could also fit in a visit to the national meuseum, Museum Gajah. While you're there you cross to Lapangan Merdeka and take a trip to the top of Monas.

But yeah, do some research and see what interests you.

You can also visit Taman Mini Indonesia Indah to see the various cultures in Indonesia.
