5 instagrammable locations in Jakarta


If you don't feel like taking your OOTD pics in the same-old cafes, these places would be a fresh change to your Instagram feed. Plus, you might leave home with more than good pictures.


3 little tips:

- come early in the morning so you get the best natural lighting and less crowd

- come on weekdays for lesser crowds

- have fun. Don't make taking pictures as your focus. Just have fun.

Taman Menteng

If you're into glasses buildings, plan going here and while you're at it, grab your Instagram boyfriend/ photographer friend. Taking pictures here are going to be tricky. If you play with the angles and the lights, you're going to have amazing shots.


Opens every day from 6:35 AM to 10:55 PM

Address: Jl. HOS. Cokroaminoto, RT.03 / RW.05, Menteng, RT.3/RW.5, Menteng, Kota Jakarta Pusat, Daerah Khusus Ibukota Jakarta 10310

What to wear:

or anything white and casual.



Kota Tua

Play with angles! It makes all the difference. One side may look "meh." Another angle might look majestic.

Another tip: look for the abandoned buildings to get that grungy vintage feels (you might want to bring your denim jacket for this).

Oh, while you're there, museum hopping is also a great idea.
