|Last month I got an opportunity to travel to Jakarta, Indonesia. We landed on a Saturday night and we went around the city on Sunday.|
|We started our day by visiting the National Monument which is built to commemorate the struggle for Indonesian independence.|
National Monument is surrounded by several small shops, a perfect place to buy souvenirs!!
|These prints are cool, aren't they?|
|All set to go...!|
|From there, we headed to the Jakarta Historical Museum. It included items from the prehistory period of the city. However, everything was written in local language. So found it a little difficult to understand.|
|These neon colored cycles were available on hourly rent. Riding it around with the hat was fun! Any guesses on which color cycle we hired? :P|
|Our last stop for the day was Ancol beach, after doing some shopping at ITC Mangga Dua. We reached during sunset and had a good time enjoying the hues of sky.|
We also took a boat ride. The cold breeze was a treat for the scorching heat we were subjected to.
|Peek-a-boo with the sunshine!|
|Love locks - But this was not in use anymore|
|Some loud music and dancing session was in progress.|
|A restaurant surrounded by water!|
We were tiered as the darkness enveloped us. But, we kick started the trip with a bang, I guess!
