Jakarta to bring all attractions for tourists under one roof

Published on : Friday, November 15, 2019

What are people looking for in a tourism destination? It is heritage, nature, urban attractions, or cuisine? Whatever it is, Jakarta administration aims to provide them all!


The capital’s 216 tourist attractions would be developed according to the specialty of each, and this concept is inspired by tourist destinations abroad.


“The research by the Jakarta Tourism Agency team found that Jakarta has 216 tourist destinations. From there, we classified them into five types of destination: heritage, nature, urban, youth, and culinary destination,” said the Jakarta Tourism Agency’s acting head, Alberto Ali.


The heritage tourist areas are to be centered on Kota Tua in West Jakarta and Jatinegara in East Jakarta.


Kota Tua would take references from Malacca and Penang, Malaysia, while Jatinegara would be inspired by Tai Krun, Hong Kong. The city is to soon map the heritage buildings in Jatinegara.


Hip and happening urban tourist destinations would be established in Cikini, Central Jakarta, Cipete and Kemang in South Jakarta.


Cikini would take references from Nimman Street in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Jakarta Bina Marga Road Agency is renovating the sidewalks along Jl. Cikini Raya. A total of 10 kilometers of sidewalks would be renovated in Cikini, Pramuka, Kramat Raya and Salemba.


The city is also renovating the Taman Ismail Marzuki arts center and Cikini will also be developed as a center for co-working spaces.


Cipete would also have maps of cafes posted in the area, in cooperation with local cafes and restaurants.


“It will not be a parking space anymore but a culinary center. It will keep the economic wheels rolling; small businesses will enter and musicians and artists can collaborate there,” said Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan.


A youth destination would be built at the Petodjo Enclek Traditional Market, which is to be designed like the Hua Shan Cultural Park in Taiwan.
