Sunda Kelapa Harbour, Jakarta

(280+ reviews on the web)
Pier / Boardwalk
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. Use our Jakarta vacation route planner to arrange your visit to Sunda Kelapa Harbour and other attractions in Jakarta.
