Every time I visit Jakarta, TANAH ABANG Market is a MUST-GO. I buy clothes (formal & casual ones), shoes, BATIK (Indonesian national formal wear) etc, all at bargain. Pasar Tanah Abang itself has multistory shopping blocks in which Blok A is newest & highest with a mosque at its top & food stalls at one floor. Food is excellent. Since... More

The place so big, cant finish... More

I was amazed with the size of the place. You can find here all you want. Also just great to see another side of jakarta culture. Unfortunately we arrived close to the closing times, so we had no time to explore much. Great place to buy souveniers!

This is the place who can buy clothes with cheap price and you can negotiate about the price. If you buy many they can give you different price
