Description

HERITAGE WALKING TOUR in JAKARTA

Synopsis :

The town of Batavia (name of Jakarta during the Dutch colonization era) was populated by a lot of Chinese immigrants from Southern China at the beginning of the 18th century. In the town which was the biggest trading center in the Nusantara (name of Indonesian archipelago during the olden days), we could witness the culture assimilation between the Chinese and the local culture. At one time, Chinatown vicinity was considered as outside of the town. The Chinese communities were placed outside the town border by the colonial government for controlling purpose. You also will listen to the story about the pain and the joy of the Chinese boatmen who immigrated and settled down in this port city. Here you might smell incense scents as we walk into this neighborhood. It used by the worshippers when they pray inside the archaic Buddhist and Confucius Temples around here. There are some interesting Chinese philosophy and superstition that we are about to explore. You will be introduced with the Chinese traditional cuisines and or snacks. Let’s stroll together to understand more about the Indonesian Chinese Culture.
