Sunda Kelapa Harbour, Jakarta

3.6
#5 of 9 in Historic Sites in Jakarta
Pier / Boardwalk Historic Walking Area
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.

Where to stay in Jakarta

A wealth of choices exists in Jakarta, a sightseeing destination in its own right and a gateway to the rest of the country.

Up in the Kemang district you'll find an abundance of backpacker and budget accommodations, such as hostels and rental apartments, in areas known for their small cafes, trendy bars, and nightlife.
