Take in the highlights of bustling Jakarta during a five-and-a-half-hour tour that begins with a drive to the 14th century Sunda Kelapa harbor for a look at the traditional wooden boats known as pinisi. Next, shop like a local at a pasar, or traditional market. This feast for the senses is a dynamic marketplace full of vendors selling fruits and vegetables, spices, fish and meat, clothing, costumes, household items, and jewellery. Then, visit the Menteng 1 Elementary School attended by President Obama. Greeting you as you approach the school is the three-foot-tall bronze stature depicting the President at the age of ten. After the tour, enjoy a refreshing cup of java coffee or tea plus a tasty snack as the school principal and children share their pride of their illustrious former alumnus. Your final stop takes you to the breathtaking Istiqlal Mosque, acclaimed as the largest in Southeast Asia.
Don’t forget your camera!
