  • This is batavia icon for past year, nice, so authentic entertaiment, you could find any magician such as fortune teller, and unique merchant. 
  • Selain mudah di akses karena dekat sekali dgn stasiun Jakarta kota , banyak museum yang bisa dikunjungi, hiburan dan makanan bisa kita dapat dengan mudah. 
  • Very interesting if you are into history. Great old buildings. The Bari museum we found particularly interesting as it is to n the old warehouses that stored the spices for export.
