Taman Impian Jaya Ancol Tips (24)

Jakarta plays by the Seaside

Lots of things go on down at Ancol. We used to come here to check out the art and craft souvenir shops and to find something to eat. It was a pretty long bus trip when we could not con someone into driving us down.

A few time we caught sight of a traditional Kuda Lumping troupe. This is a Javanese dance where the performers depict horsemen. Dancers "ride" colourfully decorated horses made from woven bamboo. Sometimes the performance also incorporates trances and magic tricks. When the "possessed" dancer is performing the dance in trance conditions, he can display unusual abilities, such as eating glass and resistance to the effects of whipping or hot coals.

In 1982 there wasn't much else other than the Art and Craft Market and the beach, swimming pool, golf course and Hotel. Now it has expanded massively, and has other attractions like Dufan,

Atlantis Ancol

This is a water world at Ancol Marina. A really nice place to take the kids as they`ll have a really great time. There is many different swimming pools here and many different water slides. Also the wave pool has a very nice vibe to it with music play and people singing. There is also a salt water pool for you to float in which is resemblance of the dead sea. The swimming pools for the kids is really very nice as there is so much for them to do. There is also a food court here and many characters the kids can take photo`s with and buy sweet hampers from.

Missed the beach in Town? head to Ancol

Ancol is the nearest beach area in this metropolitan. It is not adviseable to swim here due to the water condition but it is a bit refreshing when you can get over the 'macet' (traffic jam) street and sit yourself at the marina or simply taking the boat and ride along the beach.

It is indeed a lot of city crowd during the weekend where we can find lots and lots of activities here from an amusement park to beach singing, bumboat riding and even some good restaurant scattered there such as Jimabaran Restaurant and Bandar Djakarta Restaurant.

Some Publicity

Nope! We don't mind to go for a trip and make some publicity ... :o)))
When in Jakarta and just arrived in Indonesia we love to sail along the shore. After a visit to Taman Impian Jaya Ancol we always go for a sail for a rest, a chat, and for Kodak!

Recreation, Art, Theatre, Sport, Sailing

... "Dreamland"...
That is what Ancol has been named; a huge landscaped recreation park, providing non-stop entertainment, along the bayfront between Kota and Tanjung Priok. Have a great time with children and visit Ancol's prime attractions include the Pasar Seni (Art Market), its many sidewalk cafes and gallery where there are often interesting exhibitions of modern Indonesian art and photography. Very crowded on weekends, but on week-days it's fairly quiet and a splendid place to escape from the hassles of downtown city.

Guess what I found: -> a painting of the Javanese Ratu Kidul, Spirit-Queen of the Southern Ocean. Cost-price 10.000$ included "special price-bargains" ... so I started to paint myself

Feed the sea turtles....

Seaworld Indonesia is an aquarium. It isn't as large as the name would suggest but definitely worth a visit.
It is completely confirn western standards but the animals are slightly different...

-coconut crabs in a nice vivarium
-a touch-area with seaturtles , thornbacks , sharks
-a large tunnel with full grown sea turtles
and many tropical fish

My absolute favorites are the sea turtles and the arapaima's

-2 hours for a visit will be enough , check when you enter the feeding times and join.
-The best time to visit is in my opinion 9 in the morning before the place gets flooded by school children and before the noisy 'educational' shows take place
-take a taxi inside the parc and let them drop you in front of seaworld. Ancol is the largest amusement parc in south east asia.
