The past 2 weeks my wife and I went for a 16 day tour through Indonesia. We had a fantastic journey, not only because of the beautiful country, pleasant people, good food and fine weather, but also because of the excellent Indonesian guide and nice group of fellow Dutch travellers (26 in total).
After a 19 hour flight from Amsterdam we arrived in Jakarta around noon.
We only had one afternoon to visit Jakarta, so we immediately went to the harbour where old wooden ships were being loaded by hand. These ships are so beautifully made, incredible. Real handicraft.
I was able to make this quick impression before we left for a tour through the citycenter, and a visit to the colonial museum.
