Welcome to Kota & Glodok
Despite its nooks of fun and culture, to the uninitiated Jakarta can feel overwhelming and its gifts inaccessible. Kota is where they're easy to find. Here you'll find the vestiges of old Batavia, the colonial Dutch city of the 18th century. There are plenty of museums and places to stroll as you survey the city's efforts to reclaim its past even as it plans for the future. Just south, Glodok is the heart of old Chinatown and offers great opportunities to explore in a compact and vibrant area.
