Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (Beautiful Indonesia in Miniature Park)
There is a small charge to enter Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, with additional charges for attractions such as museums and theaters. The cultural performances at the traditional houses, however, are free.
Taman Mini Indonesia Indah tours can be well worth taking as guides introduce the different cultures behind the various architectural styles, direct you to the highlights, and typically provide door-to-door round-trip transfers through Jakarta’s gridlocked traffic. Some tours focus exclusively on Taman Mini itself; others bundle it with attractions such as the national museum.
Things to Know Before You Go
Taman Mini Indonesia Indah is an excellent choice for families or anyone who’d like to learn more about Indonesia’s diverse cultures but may not have the opportunity to travel far.
There are many different elements to Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, which often have their own admission fee. Pay careful attention to what is included when booking a tour.
Wear comfortable shoes—there’s a lot of ground to cover. Most women will feel more relaxed dressed conservatively, with shoulders and knees covered.
It’s worth renting a bicycle, motorbike, or car once inside the grounds—Taman Mini is far from mini.
How to Get There
Taman Mini Indonesia Indah is located in East Jakarta, around 15 miles (25 kilometers) from Fatahillah Square. The Transjakarta 7D bus runs from Indonesian Christian University (UKI) in East Jakarta to the park gates, but most visitors find it easier to rent a car with a driver or join a guided tour than to piece together Jakarta’s confusing public transport or brave gridlock behind the wheel.
When to Get There
Taman Mini Indonesia Indah is open from morning until late seven days a week, although museums, houses, and some other attractions close midafternoon. This is a popular attraction for Jakarta families, so it’s best to avoid visiting on weekends and especially on Indonesian public holidays, when lines can be very long.
Taman Mini Indonesia Indah An Architectural Tour of Indonesia
Indonesia’s myriad ethnic groups occupy thousands of islands, speak hundreds of different languages, and boast vastly different cultures and architectural styles. The houses at Taman Mini Indonesia Indah showcase this diversity, with examples from as far afield as Papua, Sumatra, and Borneo. There’s even a miniature scale model of Java’s historic Borobudur temple.
