Jakarta does not have many tourist attractions and the locals spend many hours at the shopping malls. There are shopping malls everywhere, they are very clean, have a great range of shops and are well air conditioned.

You cannot really enjoy the sights avoiding the crowds if you come from Europe-America, everyone wanted to take a picture with me as they do not see a lot of European tourists there so I have spent 1 hour taking pictures with Indonesian people in front of the national monument but I liked it, it was very strange but I could see it made them very very happy! :)
