Most of the actractions that people can find are in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia.
You can see below a list of one of the main and most interesting ones:
- "Old City" in English, this is was a main hub in the colonial dutch period of Indonesia's history. There are many museums and exhibitions here, along with great architecture. Museums I recommend are the fine art and ceramic museum, Jakarta history museum, and Museum Bank Indonesia.You can also go to the Wang (Javanese puppetry) Museum, but the explanations on the plaques are sub-par and in Indonesian or very jumbled English. However, the price is cheap, and some of the displays are a pretty cool introduction for a foreigner. You can eat the street food, or visit a famous cafe called Batavia Café.
- this is the big monument you see on all the postcards. On the grounds there are museums and other stuff to see.
Galeri Nasional Indonesia (National Gallery of Indonesia)
- a well laid out art gallery that regularly showcases Indonesian artists. Free to enter. It's very close to MONAS. http://galeri-nasional.or.id/en
- This is a waterfront area that has nice dining options and a walking area. There is an aquarium as well I believe.
- not necessarily a tourist site, but an interesting place to go. It is the Biggest mall in Jakarta (I think) and it has a mini amusement park for children inside. It has a lot of shops catering to both locals and expats
