Sunda Kelapa
Sunda Kelapa . Old scenic harbour

This cycling route takes you from Jakarta Kota Tua along the grand canal lined with Dutch mansions, spice warehouses and even an original wooden drawbridge. This one hour leisurely cycling route is not-to-be missed on any tourist itinerary and brings you all the way to the scenic old harbour with antique wooden sailing boats. For centuries Batavia, as Jakarta was called in the heydays of the Dutch colonial empire, was one of the world’s most important trading hubs and this route highlights the vivid reminders of a rich past.
