Minimum transfer time in Jakarta

We will be arriving into Jakarta (CKG) from Singapore at 0815 on Garuda. We want to take a 0910 flight from CKG to PKN on Trigana airlines. That means we will only have 55 minutes between flights to get through passport control, customs, etc. We will not be checking our luggage and will already have our visas. Is 55 minute enough time to get through it all? Any help and perspective is much appreciated. Thanks!

IMHO almost zero chance you will make it.

I was afraid that might be the response!

Thanks for the input.

That means we will most likely fly to PKN the following day and will have almost a full day to spend in Jakarta and also spend the night. Any recommendations for must-see attractions? First time to Indonesia.

Are you museum people? The National Museum has a wonderful collection of old Indonesian artifacts, although they are poorly labled for the most part. Go in the morning. See the Gold Room and the statuary courtyard.

If you like Colonial history you can also see Fatihillah, the old Dutch City Hall, although many of the old VOC furnshings have disappeared it's still worth a look, and the Puppet and Textile Museums are nearby. Have lunch at Cafe Batavia.

There's not much fresh air to be had in Jakarta, unfortunately.

You can also take last flight Singapore to Surabaya and stay at airport for the very early morning flight to PKN. Have you check Tigerair?

Good ideas on activities and alternate routing via Tigerair. We will definitely check them out. Thanks much!

Please allow at least 2 hours at least (some more if you are flying with low cost carrier and those without connecting arrangement)...
