Jakarta itself is so big it is divided into districts – central, west, south, east, north and thousands islands.

In the central area you’ll find the National Museum of Indonesia, the Bundaran HI and the Jalan Jaksa while in the north area you’ll find the Ancol Bayfront City – Asia’s largest integrated tourism area.

If you fancy a spot of diving, you can visit the thousand islands area.
