Jakarta is the perfect melting pot of Chinese, European, Javanese, Malay, Arab and Indian cultures and traditions. While exploring Indonesia’s giant capital, be sure to check out the Old Town Kota Tua and the Port of Sunda Kelapa, where you will find many traditional wooden schooners.
There are three different ways to travel in Jakarta from the airport to the city; taxi, bus or train. Taking a Jakarta airport taxi is the quickest and most convenient way to travel as it takes just 45 minutes to reach the city and costs around €13 (IDR 200,000). Another fast transfer option is to take the train. The journey time is just 50 minutes and the cost of a train ticket is €4.50 (IDR 70,000). Finally, taking the Damri bus is the cheapest but slowest option. A one-way ticket on the Damri bus costs €2.50 (IDR 40,000), but the journey time is around 2 hours.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Jakarta at the same price as a regular taxi.
