Recommended 5 shopping malls that you want to stop by in sightseeing in Jakarta


As the sidewalks of Jakarta are not maintained, it is natural but there are not many pedestrians. And the shops on the road are not well developed.

Old-fashioned food stalls lined, but there is almost no road surface for young people and families to enjoy.

It is a shopping mall that has developed in such a background.

With the development of Jakarta, a large and small shopping mall was built, and it is said that there are now more than 70 malls.

The mall in Jakarta is a commercial facility but also has elements like a small city, and the atmosphere changes greatly depending on the rank.

You can feel the momentum of Jakarta economy by looking at luxury malls, and you can feel the life of Indonesians by looking at popular malls.

If there is a mall near the hotel, it will be interesting to stop by some. This article introduces some of the main shopping malls in the center of Jakarta.

Grand Indonesia

Near the entrance divided into WEST and EAST.

One of Jakarta's representative malls, one that must be mentioned is the Grand Indonesia Mall, located in the center of Tamling area.

The total area is Southeast Asia's largest super huge mall. All fashion, beauty and food brands from Indonesia as well as from abroad are gathered.

Pop-up shop events and mid-night sales, which are open until midnight, are often held, and the trends surrounding the young generation of Jakarta can be felt uniformly.

There are various spaces, and it is also one of the interesting things that the expression changes from floor to floor.

Women may be good for souvenirs as they have unusual fashion brands.

There is also a souvenir store called ALUN ALUN, so it's a great place to look for souvenirs even if you are not a woman.

Kota Kasablanka

The mosaic exterior wall is impressive

A mall that has recently gained momentum in the center is KOTA KASABLANKA.

The impression you saw may have the same feeling as Grand Indonesia, but this mall has an extremely large number of food items.

If you go down to the basement floor, the entire large floor is full of food and drink tenants, and the floor will be full of hungry Indonesians on weekends.

On the left side of the Ground Floor, there is a section called Food Society.

Underground food can be used as casual food, and Ground Floor can be used as a slightly fashionable meal.

There are restaurants on both sides of the Food Society.

These days, the Japan Travel Fair-and a Japanese food event hosted by JETRO are held, and it is a mall that has something buzzing with Japan.

Pacific Place

This logo mark is a mark (Photo:

Among the many shopping malls in Jakarta, Pacific Place is surrounded by the most aura.

It has established a solid position as a high-end shopping mall for the wealthy.

Even in a rich atmosphere, you can also have a playful display (Photo:

The mall is lined with luxury brands such as Cartier and Esmes.

In addition, in the shopping mall in Jakarta, there are displays of cars tailored to the customers' class. To my surprise, Lamborghini is on display at Pacific Place.

The area called SCBD (which stands for Sudirman Central Business District), which has Pacific Place, has been developed as an elite business district.

Apart from the mall, there is also a music club and a bar open until late, which is one of the most well-divided areas in Jakarta.

If you look over Pacific Place, it may be interesting to go to the night's SCBD.

Plaza Senayan

Entrance appearance of calm atmosphere.

Plaza Senayan is a representative shopping mall in the Senayan area, an area developed by Japan's Developer.

In addition to the cleanliness of the store and good customer service attitude, it should be noted that it is a unique lineup of restaurants.

It may be a mall with the most calm atmosphere.

There are many rare restaurants in Plaza Senayan that are unique to this area.

Of course the Japanese food lineup is also great.

If you miss a delicious meal, you should visit it.

It's located a short distance from the Pacific Place I introduced.

TEL +62 21 5725555
OPERATIN HOURS 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM (Some stores are open after 10:00 PM)


Mal Ambasador

You may miss it if you don't walk carefully, this signboard is a mark.

Lastly, I will introduce a mall with a slightly different character.

Mal Ambasador is located in the center of Jakarta, but it is a shopping mall made for "common people". It is not a mall for the rich.

All the shops and food that you see are the ones that Jakarta residents are familiar with.

It is the mall closest to the daily life of Indonesians in central Jakarta.

Unlike a high-class mall, the store has a sense of mess in Asia.

If you want to taste the typical atmosphere of Indonesians, you should visit there.

You can go to the adjacent ITC mall through the underground floor and the upper floor crossing corridor.

This is also a super local mall.

Experience the local atmosphere different from that of a luxury mall.

NAME Mal Ambasador
ADDRESS Jl. Prof. DR. Satrio No. 25, Karet Kuningan, Kec. Setiabudi,
Karet Kuningan, Setia Budi, Jakarta Selatan
TEL +62 21 57937888
OPERATING HOURS 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM (Some stores are close before 9:00 PM)


Editor's Note

It would be a shame to finish sightseeing in a shopping mall alone, but it would be a good idea to stop by one or two to get a feel for Jakarta.

You can relax in the shopping mall because it is safe.

At the beginning of your trip, it is one use of the shopping mall to stop to get used to the atmosphere of the city.
