City Tour Bus

Tours in Jakarta

Ride around central Jakarta on free double-decker tour buses courtesy of the city's government. Run by Transjakarta, the buses offer a DIY experience as there's no narration. Still, you can't beat the price or the view. There are numerous stops, including those at Plaza Indonesia, Museum Nasional, National Monument and Museum Bank Indonesia.

Four routes named BW1, BW2, BW3 and BW4 cover the themes 'History of Jakarta', 'Jakarta Modern', Art and Culinary' and 'Jakarta Skyscrapers' respectively. Locals often catch these buses for a free commute, so they can be crowded at peak times.
