An invigorating barrage on all the senses, this buzzing megalopolis of soaring glass and steel will leave you both breathless and captivated in equal measure. Budget some leisure time in a Jakarta hotel and you’ll also unveil a different personality, one of inviting old lanes filled with colourful sights, delicious food and century’s old culture hidden around almost every corner. Plunge into the evocative Dutch colonial streets of Kota where surrounding Taman Fatahillah cobblestone square you’ll discover engaging temples, memorials and museums telling the tale of Jakarta’s long history: if you’ve time for just one, a must for any Jakarta bucket list is the Museum Nasional. For a spot of lunch amid a charming residential district head to the Culinary Centre and sample some Nasi Goreng, a delicious tasting plate cooked up by street-food vendors. With your taste buds thoroughly tantalised, take some time to slow down from the sultry heat and city maelstrom with a gentle walk in a tropical park: there’s a few to choose from but Sirupati Park offers you the unique experience of walking barefoot along reflexology paths. As the sun begins to set on your busy day it’s time to take a bite out of Jakarta’s nightlife. Perhaps it’s witnessing a hypnotic performance of gamelan music at the Taman Ismail Marzuki cultural centre, or maybe you’d prefer an evening amongst the restaurants and antique teahouses lining the steamy, aromatic streets of Chinatown. Should you be thirsty for more, why not join Indonesia’s fashionistas in the sleek city bars and uber-chic clubs and party till dawn. A city in a dizzying fast lane, let the hotels in Jakarta reveal the dazzling depths of this vivacious and riveting city.
