National Monument (Monas), Jakarta
You have to see Monas, the symbol of Jakarta. The form is golden torch on the top of a huge column. You can see it from a two or three miles distance.
Monas in the weekend is full of people, having picnics, cycling, jogging, and playing games. You can find a lot of Indonesian food, sold in tents and cars, like Gado-gado (mix vegetables with peanut dressing), chicken rice porridge, meatballs, and other.
Fondest memory: I incredibly miss the FOOD!!!!
Favorite thing: The national monument, built in the middle of the new Jakarta city, deserves a visit for at least 2 reasons, the great view you can have from the top and because I guess the area around the monument is the only one in Jakarta!
visit Jakarta's most recognisable landmark, the Monas (Monumen Nasional).
Towering 137 meters above Merdeka Square, the best 360 degree views (undeniably) of Jakarta can be seen from the top, mercifully reached by elevator.
Favorite thing: jakarta has many point of interest, one of them you must see monas or national monument. our people proud of this place
