3.3
#5 of 17 in Historic Sites in Jakarta
Jakarta's old port, Sunda Kelapa Harbour features historic docks lined by the pointed prows of pinisi--traditional two-masted wooden sailing ships with colorful hulls. For a small fee, guides working in this area can tell you more about the port's history and its role in the spice trade. Though only a minor port now, this site played a significant part in the early development of Jakarta. Keep in mind that this is still an active port, so expect to see and smell the dirt and grime of local industry.

  • I thought it was a nice place to visit but unfortunately u can only see big ship there, nothing more
  • This place is the beginning of Jakarta. Now it is not as busy as in the past. But it is still an interesting place to visit. Look at wooden boats unloads, take a lot of pictures there
  • HERITAGE port of old Batavia (now Jakarta). Still existed through the years as harbour for traditional ships like Phinisis.
  • Dirty, dusty, smelly noisy. Unless you are going on a boat, I would stay away
  • Nice place to take picture.
