Jakarta Kota Tua (the Colonial District) has witnessed the City’s long story of development, from a bustling colonial harbour to 21st-century capital city. Though currently run down and derelict, the area still holds its own charm, drawing flocks of visitors looking for Jakarta’s historical traces. Bajaj and becak riders, street food vendors, pedestrians and cyclists roam around its street, posing charming contrasts to the grand colonial architecture. Can you name a few of these buildings?
