One of our favourite place is Library. We’ve been visited National Library of Indonesia, it’s an outstanding place. It had 26 floor, beautiful children area, delicious cafe. Unfortunately until now (March 2018) National Library of Indonesia doesn’t allow visitor to borrow books.
Library at Taman Ismail Marzuki
But that’s ok. At Jakarta we have, other beautiful and cozy place. Local Public Library is located inside Taman Ismail Marzuki, at Cikini. Side by side with Graha Cipta.

2. Graha Cipta
3. Local Public Library
5. XXI Movie Theater

How to get there?
If you are using private vehicle, is quite easy. Just google it. The road in front of TIM is one way.
If you plan using public transportation my suggestion is to use train.
Step down at Cikini Stasiun, and walk to the north for about 800 meter.
TIM is opposite Hotel Alia Cikini.
What To Wear?
If you plan to go to library, Casual outfit is allowed. We prefer to wear something comfortable. Shirt, short pant, or flipflop are OK. Don’t worry, there are plenty of aircon at library.
