Despite its nooks of fun and culture, to the uninitiated Jakarta can feel overwhelming. Kota is where the main attractions are easily found. Here live 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, a busy, compact and vibrant area with temples and markets.
