Situated to the southeast of Jakarta, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (or ‘Beautiful Indonesia Miniature Park’) covers some 250 acres and features famous mini buildings and landmarks from all over Indonesia.
The park is not only a visual attraction and recreation area, but also serves to showcase authentic examples of the different cultures and heritages of the people of Indonesia. It consists of traditional houses for each of the country’s provinces, supplemented with ornaments and motifs from each territory, along with displays of clothing and handicrafts.
The park also features a cable-car ride, an IMAX theatre, a mini-scale borobudur, an orchid garden, a bird park, and various museums. In addition, the park hosts a number of dance and cultural events, particularly on Sundays.
Taman Mini Indonesia Indah is situated approximately 20 kilometers from Jakarta’s city center. The easiest way to reach it is by taxi, although the Koridor 7 bus to the Kampung Rambutan terminal and then a T15 MiniMetro will also get you there.
