Introduction:Located in the downtown, the National Monument (height: 132m) is the highest building in Jakarta, and on its tower top there is a Torch of Freedom made of 35kg gold. If arriving at the tower top by elevator, you will hold high-rise buildings, wide streets, shuttling cars, verdant trees and fresh flowers in a single glance.


In downtown of Jakarta, the traffic network is accessible from all directions, but traffic jam is still a hard nut in the city, particularly in the business district of the downtown. However, dedicated bus is basically free from the traffic jam's influence when it runs along trunk roads in the downtown, and so it is a very convenient traffic tool for tourists.
