  • You can find colonial tombstone/memorial dated from 1700s up until 1960s here as some of the corpses were already relocated to somewhere else. Most of them are the Dutch, but there are some American, British, and Chinese-Indonesian too. Some are really well-kept but expect to see many deteriorating sculpture/tombstones. Near the entrance they display the caskets of Bung Karno and Bung Hatta. Sadly they don't put information or story even on the prominent person's tombstone so if you don't understand Dutch at all it will be quite disappointing. It is quiet here but during midday the heat might be really intense and near the closing hour the mosquitoes will start to upset you. It is still a nice place if you want to escape from the noisy city and admire the work of art after all.
  • the museum is unique! a lot of dutch's-styled graves. it's not creepy at all.
  • The cemeteries and graves have stories behind it. Good place to take photos, and srudy about history
  • you will need a guide to get the best out of your visit. unfortunately I'm not sure the guide can speak english.
  • This is an old graveyard, built during Dutch colonization. Why on earth people want to see old graveyards? Isn't it a bit spooky? Well, Indonesian always attract to spooky stories. Plus, for those who like photography, this is also the best sites for you to practice. You can see the statues sort of alive, their eyes watching you intensly. However, some of the statues were vandalized which is a pity actually.

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. For luxury options, try the Lingkar Kuningan area, where new developments provide rooms with excellent views of the city. Head north to find more affordable hotels, offering comfortable rooms in local, non-chain establishments. 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.
