can oud batavia stay forever?

like every person/traveler/citizen in the world who has fave corner/quarter/specific area within a city, i can tell kota or old batavia stolen my heart since long time ago. and became my fave place in jakarta.

formerly known as jacatra or batavia also jayakarta, this old quarter in the northern part of daerah khusus ibukota jakarta raya a.k.a dki jaya still keep the glorious moments from the past.

since vt have 2 pages about jakarta, i dedicated this page for old quarters of batavia. such as like kota and menteng areas. so, for anyone who are searching info about modern jakarta, kindly visit my other page of jakarta. this section is only contains about oldies part of jakarta!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:many old buildings scattered along the quarter
  • Cons:high pollutions, unmaintenance buildings, etc :(
  • In a nutshell:a forgotten quarter in daerah khusus ibukota jakarta raya [dki jaya]

    Like that horror restaurant's uniqueness and antique feeling. I should have gone to Cafe Batavia and given my sweetie that black forest while I can sip the green tea. Take care Arie.
