Any place on the way to Jakarta Airport worth a visit?

Hi everyone,

Our family (5 people) wil stay 3 nights in Jakarta.

I and my mom decided to stay one more night after send the others to the airport to fly back home. All of us will check out then my mom and I will move into other place.

So, we have almost 2 days and 1 night free, is there any place near the airport/convenient to have a stop by on the way to airport and worth a visit?

We would have already visited many areas in the city center incl. mangga dua, kota, and even taman mini indonesia. Mom and I have no interest in park. Beach is considered though we are not that into it.

Thanks in advance.

Dear all,

Many thanks for your information.

I've just looked around and found this message on facebook of Hard Rock Cafe Jakarta :

"We couldn't thank you enough for those who already follow & still following our twitter , BIG THANK YOU!

Please follow our twitter for those who hasn't

Because BIG surprise will be waiting for you all on the day we're open at 16th September 2013!

Have a rockin' Monday ya'll!!"

So, I know that I'll miss their grand opening.

Hope that Black Cat is my taste.

Thanks again!

Much better to know where you will be staying before recommending a place to buy or the final itinerary.. since its much better to buy somewhere close.. so you dont get caught in the jam.. :)

As.... every mall has a food supermarket on the basement level, you can buy a supply of <<candies, snacks, crackers/biscuits.>> everywhere. Prices are marginally the same: Lotte, Kemchiks, Hypermarket etc.

Within Taman Mini park, there is free shuttle which you can take from designated stops. Enquire at the park entrance for latest frequency.

For senior citizen, not much focused activity really but outdoor market, although bustling might be to their interest compared to modern shopping malls.

For adults, ancol can be a place to see what beachfront area of jakarta looks like... you can do beachfront dining or just see animal shows at Samudera Adventure... the art market is also worth a visit if you want to see the creation of local artist...

Hi Nhu Hoa,

Jakarta has quite many places for massage, either only foot massage or whole body massage which may take 2-3 hours. I guess this may suit your mom (and also good for you). You can browse "Martha Tilaar" which I recommend. Here is the link you may need. www.marthatilaarspa.com/subpage.php…

For location, I recommend Pluit or Kelapa Gading Area (they have their outlets there). Pluit is close to airport. Kelapa Gading where you can find many restaurants around. Its a good place to explore culinary in Jakarta.

Cheers,

Riris
