- Then we continued to other part of The Old Batavia. We were excited and thirsty at the same time. SO we headed out from The Fatahillah Museum. Finnaly we were able to see the main plaza, and of course some snacks.
The Plaza was crowded by many tents that sold clothing for cheap price (mainly). It looked really messy. For tourists, please bargain for much cheaper prices before buying.

They also rent old time bike with the matching theme helmet. Behind is BNI bank building.
Here are the bicycles
Chilled out in front of Fatahillah Museum
Yup cannons. The myth said, If you touch it, you will be blessed by fertility.
The trees added excellent feeling of the colonial eras.
Some revamping thingy
This was the snack I meant. Tahu Gejrot (Smashed Tofu). It costst about 5000 rupiah.
CUt tfried tofu, then add some vinegar with sliced chilly. You can ask the seller whether you want it spicy or not.
Yoyo enjoyed his dish
Used an umbrella. booo
After we had some snacks, then we continued to see other buildings and met up with Ived. Believe it or not some of the buildings below are still occupied for living.
Then we met with Ived!! We were about to see the museum of arts, but unfortunately it has already closed at 4 pm. We just took some photes there.
Hey welcome here Ived..
The tree decoration looked like a prank but it was artificially made by the museum management.
That is the facade of the Art Museum. Look like the national museum facade.
I guess that was the end of my journey at old Batavia. Overall it was one good memory for me. SInce I know that meet up for us seems to be impossible now, because we all working now then we should spent and arrange more time for this.
When you visit Jakarta, this is the one you must visit. Be careful of pickpocket, find a tour guide there. So enjoy jakartaa!!
