Karet is within easy reach of many of Jakarta’s well-known sights. Two attractions that should be at the top of every visitor’s itinerary is the fascinating Taman Mini Indonesia Indah and the much-loved Museum Purna Bhakti Pertiwi. Two other interesting attractions you’ll find close by Karet are the Lubang Buaya Memorial Park and Museum and Ragunan Zoo.
There’s no excuse to neglect your game while you are here. Visit the Pangkalan Jati Golf Course in Depok to enjoy great greens and challenging bunkers.
Those looking for sporting action can cheer on the Indonesia National Team soccer team and the Persija Jakarta at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, the sporting heart and soul of the city. When the full-time siren sounds, follow local sports obsessives to the nearby pubs to either celebrate, or commiserate, depending on the score.
For a real taste of this fascinating part of the world, consider booking your accommodation close by in one of the area’s charming bed and breakfast or hotel options. For a good night’s sleep check out the amenities at the Favehotel Kemang, the Amaris Hotel Tendean, and the popular Kemang Icon By Alila.
