Chinatown Glodok or Chinatown in Jakarta is not the same as in most other Asian cities. He is just as fussy and very "trading" as everywhere else, but outwardly very different. There is little classical Chinese architecture and temples here, everything is clogged with traffic and traffic jams. Therefore, it cannot be said that it is definitely worth visiting this area as a tourist attraction. But if time permits, go here to see some beautiful Buddhist Chinese temples and stroll through the evening street markets, where everything is sold, and of course, a lot of counterfeit. And of course, with the arrival of darkness, countless outdoor cafes with the most exotic food open here, but everything does not work until late in the evening, and by 9 pm everything is already closed. And yet, this is one of the most successful areas with entertainment for adults.
🕐 Working hours: around the clock.
💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: free of charge.
🚶 How to get there: Goldok Chinatown is located north of the center, adjacent to the historic district Kota (Chinatown on the map). You can get there by Transjakarta Busway buses to the Glodok stop of corridor 1 and 9B, or by city trains to the station Jakarta, and then walk 1 kilometer.
