"Weekend Getaway from Jakarta" Puncak by cokes

Puncak Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 72 photos

I was lucky to come to Puncak , leaving late from Jakarta on Saturday traffic was really horrific. Most people from Jakarta seemed to come here over the weekend to escape the city life and just come to the Puncak Mountains to relax and enjoy the scenary and the clean air and cool weather.

One thing that I also loved was that we were`nt planning on staying over but we did and so we had to get clothes for the next day and some toiletries. :o( Why did`nt I just make Jakarta my 1st stop and come with a empty bag as they have all these factory shops here with original designer clothes with prices so cheap you just want to shop till you drop.

I loved the tea plantations all over , its really beautiful and if you get a chance to visit here when in Jakarta be sure to take a horse ride through the tea plantations and offcoarse without a doubt you gotta have some tea from here...fresh from the plantation.

I would recommend you stop and Taman Safari as well especially if you have kids.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful Scenary , Fresh Air & Lots of Factory Shops
  • Cons:Crazy Traffic
  • In a nutshell:I would love to return someday.
