The Old Town of Jakarta/Old Batavia comprises many sites and covers quite large area. The "common" Old Jakarta is very easy to access and a very common place to hang around for youngsters and family during the weekend. The atmosphere can be very crowded but uniquely alive with thick senses of "Old Batavia" all around.
The outlying islands are also easy to access with day tour packages, departing from a fish market, nowhere near the 'common' Old Town. Within those islands, what's left of former barracks, hospitals, towers, etc are everywhere to be seen and experience.
It's a nice site (or should I say, sites) to be on the list. Each of the buildings and islands embraces universal values that makes what's Jakarta today, how it was, and what could have been different.
