Thamrin Jakarta
by: Sylviana


Thamrin is one of the most happening areas in the metropolis. With comfortable, clean, broad sidewalks, the dynamic street boasts all-night dining and entertainment facilities, such as Djakarta Theatre (Jakarta’s first cinema), After Hour, Chili’s, McDonald’s (open 24 hours) and Starbucks (open 24 hours) around the renowned Sarinah Department Store.

The store itself is a reminder of the first wave of development, before the commercial hub of the city moved further south. Sarinah holds nostalgia for many and runs a thriving business on clothing, shoes, cosmetics, books, office supplies and a wide choice of Indonesian batiks and handicrafts. Besides the department store, you can also find the United Nations’ office, Embassies of Great Britain, Japan , France , Germany and Mexico and Hotel Sari Pan Pacific, one of the oldest grand hotels in Jakarta .

At the end of the street, bordering on Bundaran HI (Hotel Indonesia Roundabout), you can find the popular Plaza Indonesia with its Entertainment Center (EX). In this hip shopping center, you can find international brands of fashion, shoes and jewelry products. Tired of shopping? You can go to one of the cozy restaurants and cafés to chill out. In the evening, EX Plaza is usually packed with party goers in search of fun at Hard Rock Café or the stylish F Bar (Fashion Bar). Around the clock, there will never be a dull moment at Thamrin, Jakarta .
