Two months a go, we were went to Kota Tua (old town) on Sunday, October 12th 2014. That was the first time we went to Kota Tua.
In Jakarta, as we know, every Sunday was holding an event called car free day. The event is starting from 06.00 am until 12.00 pm. No vehicles are allowed to enter Sudirman Street until Medan Merdeka Street (Monas). That's why, I have to find another way to Kota Tua. But that was not a big problem for me, as long I could use my Google Maps on my Sony Xperia C. Yeah, as you know, I always use Google Map to find new route. Thank you Google. Back to my story......
Kota Tua or as known in English "Old Town", is one of the most popular place in Jakarta. Many people were coming to this place, especially on weekend, not only local visitors but many tourists were coming to this place as well.
Kota Tua has a History Museum (known as Fatahillah Museum), Puppet Museum, Indonesian Pos Office Museum, Ceramics Museum and many others. But Fatahillah Museum is the most popular one.

Kota Tua located in West Jakarta, beside the Kota Tua railway Station. Why Indonesian people said Kota Tua? Because it has a big historical story. It has a high historical value, such as the building's architecture and other things.
No need to buy a ticket to entering the Kota Tua. But you have to pay for your car or motorcycle parking fee only. I parked my motorcycle at the corner of the street. That was really not a special place for motorcycle park. But I think that wasn't a big problem for me as long they kept my motorcycle well. You only need to pay IDR 2.000 for parking fee. For one time visit only.
