agoda.com, a leading global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN) today announced a chic selection of hotel deals in the exciting Javanese capital of Jakarta.
 
Jakarta is a fast-paced, cosmopolitan city, with great shopping, beautiful landmarks, intriguing historic sites and fantastic nightlife. As a weekend destination it's the perfect urban getaway – it's quickly and easily accessible from anywhere within Asia and it's got a wide array of accommodation options – many offering deals through agoda.com.

Jakarta is also great for local residents wanting to pamper themselves with a 'staycation'. Five-star properties like Mulia Hotel are perfect for Jakarta residents who want to treat themselves to a few nights in a luxurious environment and enjoy all the perks of a holiday without having to leave their home city.

First-time visitors to Jakarta have a lot of ground to cover. A good place to start is the one of the city's major must-see landmarks: the towering Monas (National Monument). Symbolic of Indonesia's independence, the Monas has an observation platform 115 meters high, offering visitors 360-degree panoramic views over the capital.

Another great introduction to Indonesian history and culture is the Taman Mini Indonesia Indah. This is a large folk 'village' with replica buildings, museums, zoos and gardens, plus theaters where visitors can catch a traditional performance.

The Museum Taman Prasasti (Museum of Memorial Stone Park) offers a completely different view of Indonesian history. A Dutch colonial cemetery, it's an unlikely place of beauty, adorned with elaborate neo-gothic and classical headstones.

For shoppers, options are abundant, with all budgets catered for. Luxury shoppers should head to Plaza Indonesia or Plaza Senayan – both offering high-end brands and designer stores. ITC Mangga Dua is more for bargain hunters, offering a vast array of goods – from electronics to women's fashion.

Gourmands will find themselves in food heaven sampling Indonesian cuisine. Travelers shouldn't miss nasi goreng (fried rice), mie goreng (fried noodles), bakso (meatball soup), ketoprak (a rice noodle dish with satay sauce, garlic, bean sprouts and chips) and martabak manis, a cake-like treat filled with a decadent mix of butter, cheese, chocolate and peanuts. For a great selection of international cafés and restaurants, travelers can head to Kemang.

Jakarta is also host to some big international events, so travelers who time their visit right can add an extra element of culture to their stay. JiFFest, the Jakarta International Film Festival and JakJazz, the Jakarta International Jazz Festival, are just two events that draw visitors from around the world. Coming up next in Jakarta (from November 11-22) are the Southeast Asian Games, held in Jakarta and the Sumatran capital of Palembang.

Travelers planning a trip to Jakarta or Indonesia residents just wanting to take a stylish city break should make the most of these special promotions from agoda.com.
