City Center

The walk that highlights Jakarta as a modern city with diversities. This walk covers some of the most important landmarks of Jakarta as you will walk in the central of the capital city. The best walk for first timers or they who want to know deeper about the J-town. The meeting point of this walk is accessible by Transjakarta bus. Stop at the MONAS bus stop and walk to your left. The walk begins at the museum and you will stroll down the main road. Don’t worry about the sidewalks here, because they’re wide and proper. But always be careful as there might be some bumps or holes. From the museum, we will make a stop at a magnificent building of Mahkamah Konstitusi or the Court of Constitution then cross the road to the iconic National Monument. Take a picture here as you haven’t visited Jakarta if you haven’t taken a picture with the monument. Not far from the monument, we will see the workplace of the President, the Merdeka Palace. Walk a bit to stop at the Supreme Court but do not stop at the Military Headquarter, it’s not allowed to stop nor to take pictures. After that, do make a stop at the most popular old ice cream parlour, Ragusa. While resting, order our favorite flavour, nougat. But you can also try your own choice. The two last stops will impress you as you will see two holy sites, the biggest mosque in South East Asia and the oldest Catholic church, stand across each other. To enter the mosque, you must cover your shoulders and legs, otherwise you will have to wear a robe provided by the mosque. The tour ends just across the mosque, the Cathedral of Jakarta. Get inside and feel the peaceful atmosphere in the middle of busy streets.

Meeting Point

In the frontyard of the National Museum (near the elephant statue). Jl. Medan Merdeka Barat No. 12, Jakarta Pusat.


Wear your most comfortable outfit and footwear and bring an umbrella, sunglasses, also water and snack if you feel necessary. We will enter a mosque, please dress accordingly.

Our Testimonial

"We went on the City Centre Walking Tour conducted by Farid. A passionate local with great knowledge of his home city. The ice cream stop came at the right time as heat relief halfway along. The highlight was the visit to the Grand Mosque where we went inside and wandered around the beautiful complex. Wow! The Jakarta Good Guide website has a list of all their tours and give a lot more info than what is here on TA. The tour is free (just like those in EU) so don’t forget to tip your guide (generously) at the end."
