This is an old harbour with old traditional ships. We went there on midday and it's very hot. Not many tourist so we dont know what to do. It's a good spot for photography and to memorize how old time harbour is operated.

Actually this place is double function. Because its still operates as Harbour and as attraction tourism place as well. If this place is for trade only tourist shouldn't come for safety & comfortable reasons. Overall, good to take some photo her

We join with Jakarta Walking Tour to explore old town. One of the spot we visited was Sunda Kelapa Harbour, and we just only paid IDR 2500 for the ticket. Nice spot for taking photo and sunset.

the harbor is highly instagrammable but it smells terribly. Don't go here at noon, extremely hot! suggest to bring adult male because this place is known to be a bit dangerous. don't dress up with minis, don't attract too much attention.

This is the oldest sea port in Jakarta. Today, this sea port were very busy with national-wide traders from all over the country. Most interesting is the Phinisi, the traditional vessel from Makassar. This type of vessel is well known for centuries ....

No fish market in this area. But you can go to muara karang and there you can find more fishes and seafood - better in the afternoon.
