Pasar Dua Mangga.: "Jakarta's most well known market." Indonesia Shopping Tip by worldkiwi
Indonesia Shopping: 15 reviews and 13 photos
When I visited Pasar Dua Mangga in 1989 when I was 17, I was almost overwhelmed by the maze of stalls, the smells, the people, the smoke!
I believe this Jakarta institute of shopping has changed significantly over the years, but as I really don't wish to brave Jakarta's notorious pollution, corruption, and general urban chaos any time soon, I guess I won't find out first-hand.
What to buy: Clothing seemed to be the big draw card and in 1989 it was cheap denimware that attracted the rupiah of foreign visitors like us.
Directions: Consulting my Jakarta map all these years later, I see there is a Pasar Mangga on Jalan Pangeran Jayakarta, in the north of the city, southeast of the city's central rail station.
