Taman Mini Indonesia Indah
(the beautiful Indonesia in miniature park)

For a short visit to Jakarta, or a better introductory to know Indonesia completely, this place is worth a visit about Indonesia?s diverseness. The park represents Indonesia?s 27 provinces and their characteristics, reflected most strikingly in the exact regional architecture of the province, covering in 165 hectares. The park also boasts its own orchid garden, a bird park with a walk-in viary, a fauna museum and recreational grounds, as well as an Indonesian art and handicraft market. At the Keong Mas (golden snail) theatre the Indonesia promotion film ?Beautiful Indonesia? is projected on a gigantic screen using the latest Imax (super realistic in image and sound) technology. Be sure not to miss this extraordinary experience.

The crowds on weekends certainly make it one of the most popular tourist spot. It often hosts art performances such as wayang kulit (leather puppet) and traditional dances. It also has several fascinating museums including the Indonesian museum, sports museum, telecommunication museum, Asmat museum, insect museum, army museum, transportation museum, Komodo museum, and stamp museum.

This place takes all day and a fair bit of effort to visit. Take a car, otherwise we will be in for a long hot walk and be prepared for massive crowds. It is all too many for one day indeed. Some highlites for kids and adults include the interactive snake display in Komodo museum, and the walk through bird enclosure. The museum housing Suharto?s gifts (former president) has some amazing stuff. Unfortunately some of the museums are like so many others in Indonesia though, old, dusty, and not enticing.
