Experience the cultural melting pot that is Jakarta’s Chinatown. Known as Glodok, this is the biggest Chinatown in Indonesia, rich with history and steeped in tradition. With 19 th century houses, ancient temples, a bustling traditional market, and famous food court, it’s truly a feast for the senses!

This 3-hour Jakarta walking tour begins by visiting one of Jakarta’s oldest Chinese houses, built in the 19th century but located in the middle of modern office blocks.

After that, you’ll walk to the centre of Jakarta’s Chinatown known as Glodok. We’ll stroll through the traditional market where you’ll find everything from Chinese decorations, to fresh vegetables and local fruits, exotic foods, and daily supplies for locals. Not far from the traditional market, we will visit some ancient temples to learn how the Chinese pray. Strolling through the residential areas, you’ll see how Chinese blend with the Malays and people from different ethnic groups. These cultures have assimilated beyond temples to create a charge in a Chinese house.

Lastly, we’ll walk through the famous food court, full of delicious local foods from pig belly to hainam rice. We’ll stop at a few of our favourite places, including an old coffee shop on a narrow street, for a taste of local delicacies. During our walk, we’ll experience local Chinese culture like the making of traditional Chinese calligraphy, getting your future predicted (an Indonesian passion), and checking out an ancient medicine store.

With your inner history buff satisfied and your senses awakened by the tastes and smells of Chinatown, you’ll be ready to take on the rest of Jakarta. Be sure to ask your local recommendations for what else to see, eat, and do!
