The selamat Datang monument is a quite central point of Jakarta and special a history point.

In earlier time it was here the Hotel Indonesia, founded (like the Salamat Datang monument and fountain) by the first Indonesia President Mr. Sukarno.
The old building of HI is now in reconstruction, see the photo.

The Selamat Datang is worth to see at day and even at night- it is so from my view- a link between the modern hight business buildings of Jalan Thamrin and the traditional kerumaan and kampung areas in the so much sideways of great Ibukota Jakarta.

The place is a station of Transjakarta and so well nown as "Halte Bunderan HI".

The Place around of Selamat Datang is (from my view) a quite shure place for tourist, and if you are together (not alone), it is able to sit at the free heaven of Jakarta at the nearby spring beneath the Hyatt until evening real outside. And inside the great Sogo mall nearby you can find a lot of very good restaurants-

And in Special: You find a good Starbucks in "Sogo" ground floor- good place to make a stop.

Address: Jalan Thamrin
Directions: At Jalan Thamrin central Area, Transjakarta "Halte Bunderan HI" near the former Hotel Indonesia.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
