We arrived on weekday at 2 pm. It was super HOT! There were lots of school children on field trip. We wanted to visit the top but the queue was 2 hours long. So we decided to just leave. Maybe will be better in the evenings?

Wast of time to go here and try and go up the tower Go there .. sit in front and take a picture.. Weekend took over 2hours and I gave up before getting even to the first level. Price says 15000 but the lady charged me 30000 , the receipt was for 20000 so she's making money on the side!

Avoid the crowds around Monas and wander the surrounding forest-like park. Parts of it are completely devoid of human life- it's wonderful! I've only been on a Sunday morning, and they're more than happy to let me in with my little dog. We do a few laps, winding our way through the trees before braving the 'real' world again.

Great tourist destination. Museum is very interesting showing the history of Indonesia. The trip up the elevator to the look out is well worth it. Great views over jakarta. 2 hour wait so best to get there 8 Am or in evening 7 pm for sunset view

One of Indonesian landmark. In the daylight the queue for reaching the top will be long. It will be better to come early. If you want to take nice photo, don't get too close so you can get the whole part of Monas.

The groundskeeper at MONAS maintains a beautiful aspect and on a Saturday morning, one could walk around feeling like you're the only one. However the closer one gets to the monument itself, that the crowds transpire and manifest in the queue to ascend the tower.
