Downtown Jakarta is a dense warren of bars, clubs, stalls, restaurants, offices and of course, shops. From unique handicrafts to haute couture labels and the latest in technology, Jakarta has something for everyone. As eclectic as the produce is, so are the shopping environments in which to find it. Like any capital city, world-class mega-malls, stacked with international brands, sit at the top end of the scale. Beyond the air conditioned walls of the contained shopping centres, downtown Jakarta (the old neighborhoods around the South of the city) has an abundance of stores selling various products, including batiks, silks and unique handicrafts.
