While the Indonesian capital has a rich cultural heritage, shopaholics heading to the city will be pleased to know that there are plenty of venues in which to indulge in some fun retail therapy. Staying at a centrally located Jakarta hotel such as Millennium Hotel Sirih Jakarta is an ideal choice since it provides easy access to many shopping venues including the Tanah Abang Textile Market. This property also offers a range of Jakarta hotel deals that provide true value for money.

Those looking to shop for the latest in fashion can visit one of the city’s glamorous malls that are home to a variety of designer stores and boutiques. You can find a range of furnishings, electronics, dining venues and entertainment options in these malls as well. Plaza Indonesia, Senayan City and Plaza Senayan are among the popular malls in the city. For a more traditional shopping experience, head to Jakarta’s “pasar” or markets where you can purchase a wide variety of local goods, textiles and produce. Unlike in the malls, your bargaining skills will be put to the test at these local markets and provide a unique shopping experience as well.
