Jakarta - excursions and day trips

Whether you want to explore nature or culture, there are many day trips from Jakarta to choose from. You can visit historical sites, sample Indonesian food, and even take a tour around the country. There are also several multi-day tours that include all the necessary facilities, such as air-conditioned transportation and proper accommodation.

The city is a major tourist destination and people from all over the world converge here. You will find a mixture of modern skyscrapers and mosques that contrast with the old world charm of the Dutch colonial buildings. For those who are more interested in shopping, you will find a wide array of boutiques and shops. You can visit the Museum Nasional for an insight into the history of the country.

The city is full of exciting nightlife and you can go shopping in some of the most vibrant areas in the city. You can also go for a gondola ride in Pasar Baru, a popular spot for tourists. You can even try some of the local cuisine, like the Cuanki dish, which consists of tofu and meatballs.

The best way to get around Jakarta is by rental car. You can rent a car from any of the many local agencies or hire your own driver to take you to some of the most popular landmarks. Depending on the length of your trip, you can take a route that takes you from the southern part of the city to the northern part. You can also hire a private taxi to get you from point A to point B in a more economical way. This service includes pick-up and drop-off, fuel, and toll fee. The drivers are licensed and reliable.


If you are interested in exploring nature, there are several day trips from Jakarta that will allow you to enjoy the countryside. Some of the attractions to see in the area are the Indonesia Miniature Park and Gunung Gede Pangrango. The latter is a great place for picnics. It has two peaks, which are perfect for hiking. It is also home to a variety of flora and fauna.

You can also visit the Thousand Island, which is actually made up of 342 islands. The most popular island is Pulau Harapan, which is known for its snorkeling spots. Another place to see is Pulau Kelapa Dua, where you can find eagles and a turtle sanctuary. You can also visit the Tangkuban Perahu volcano, which is an active volcano.


If you are into music, you can visit the Djakarta Warehouse Project in December or the Hammersonic festival in June. The city has several music festivals that attract youth fans. You can also check out the International Java Jazz Festival. You can also try the traditional foods of Chinatown. You can also stay in a cheap hotel in Lingkar Kuningan, which has rooms that offer stunning views of the surrounding area. You can also stay in a hostel in Kemang, which is the district where most of the backpackers are located.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
