Jakarta old town
The cobblestoned streets of Jakarta’s old town have become a location of choice for the city’s creative entrepreneurs. One by one the dilapidated merchant mansions and old warehouses around Fatahillah Square and the Kali Besar canal are being renovated. One-of-a kind boutiques, galleries and café’s now complement the city’s best museums and bustling open square. Kota Tua is no longer a distant memory of a rich past but a new exciting chapter in the history of one of the world’s most important trading hubs.
