The most well-known tourist attraction in East Jakarta is Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, a sprawling, one-of-a-kind theme park that represents the country's cultural diversity. Jakarta's second airport, Halim Perdanakusuma, is also located in the region.
For travelers who haven't had time to explore the entire country, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah is a good starting point. The vast recreational complex is filled with plenty of museums, gardens, and theaters that could fill an entire day. Not to be missed are the full-scale traditional houses displaying regional handicrafts from every province across the Indonesian archipelago.
After a few hours of museum-hopping, beat the heat at the SnowBay Waterpark, a family-friendly attraction located within the Taman Mini Indonesia Indah complex. The water park is filled with fun rides such as Flush Bowl, Hurricane, and Giant Bucket as well as a kids zone with fun, educational toys for younger children.
