Within the area there is the Fatahillah museum and also the Wayang Museum. There are also other historical sights surrounding the area such as Toko Merah and the Kota Intan Drawbridge.






Ragusa Italian Ice Cream

Ragusa Italian Ice Cream is the oldest ice cream shop in Jakarta. Fun fact: it is even older than the city itself! It was founded in the year 1932 by two Italian brothers, Luigi Ragusa and Vincenzo Ragusa. This ice cream shop is enjoyed by generations of people. My father brought me here for the first time when I was little and his father (my grandfather) brought him here as well.
