Sunda Kelapa Harbour, Jakarta

(3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Fun place to go. The place oozes history and people like to chat. There are men with boats you a stroll through the port. From the gateway you can go through a better piece for a better price (at the gateway they ask € 30 for a trip, a little further on € 4)

  • The old harbor has become a tourist attraction on its own right. However, despite there is a tourism office nearby, there is not much done to assist confused tourists to get around the harbor since it is still working berths for traditional ships. For instance, there should be clear direction on where to rent a boat or a signage to explain the historical importance of the harbor, without having to search it on google. And oh, it's freaking hot out here, so come early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
  • Traditional ships berths..you can rent boats to see a unique ships and the loading/unloading process along the harbour.
  • KM. Karya Nusantara 88 😘
  • The old harbor. But is still used. Water is very dirty. Make sure to get a boat driver to drive through the harbor while sunset.
