Cheapest, fastest way to get to Thamrin

Hi guys, will be going to Jakarta this month. Will arrive at Soekarno Hatta airport at midnight and I read that DAMRI buses/vans only operate until 11 pm? Will a taxi to Thamrin be expensive and should I stay nearby the airport and travel to the city via bus the next day?

Also, is Thamrin a good area to stay and for shopping? Thank you!

If you are coming from the Philippines, your only choice is taxi.

Taxi is available 24/7, and they do not have midnight surcharge or any other surcharge, just pay whatever is displayed on the meter plus any toll charges (if any) Thamrin is pretty good area in the city center to stay

I think ITC Fatamawati is closer to Thamrin, about 10km, than Mangga Dua ITC. Or they maybe close, but least you have a choice.....

Hi Raineypop...

Taxi from airport to hotel in Thamrin is under Rp200k.

Depending where on Thamrin, Ambassador Mall is not far, but I think you need Taxi to get there.

ITC Mangga Dua is pretty far. Use Busway to travel due North until the last stop, then use "Microlet" to travel the last 1km to ITC Mangga Dua.

IMO, visiting ITC Mangga Dua is way more rewarding than other shopping places. There are always somethings to buy there (unless you are looking for high-end branded items).
