Sarinah Department Store Review

In a city bursting with new malls, the first is still worth a look. The brainchild of Indonesian founding father President Sukarno, Sarinah began doing business in 1962 and was Jakarta's first department store with escalators. But don't visit this state-owned retailer for nostalgia. Centrally located Sarinah specializes in Indonesian products and is the best place in town to shop for souvenirs. Find three floors devoted to the archipelago's handicrafts and textiles, including its famed batik and woven ikat in dark, rich colors. Variety here is second to none and at a range of reasonable prices. Throughout the store, bargains abound on men's and women's fashions, cosmetics, CDs, and perfume, plus anything you forgot you to pack.

    Good for travelers

    After your shoping tour, you may enjoy good meal around this place. You can go to Jalan Jaksa or Jalan Sabang that provide with so many varieties of food. If you need to change your money to rupiah, there are many banks around and also money changers. The one that I have good experience was Sari Valas Money Changer in Sarinah Building. It's good to check
