Pasar Rawabening

Lovers of precious and semi-precious stones will find this gemstone market truly intriguing. Though one should be cautious of possible fraudulent offers, the market is a treasure-trove for anyone keen to add a little exotic sparkle to his or her life. Brilliant rubies, cat's-eyes, agate and emeralds all wrestle for a share of the consumer's pocket. Another part of the market specializes in traditional home accessories, such as Indonesian antiques and ceremonial kris (daggers) with gem-studded hilts.

Tanah Abang Market

Tanah Abang Market started off about 300 years ago as an animal market. It now occupies a three-story commercial building, but it also spills over to the hundreds of street vendors sprawling in the area. These small stalls sell mainly textiles, apparel, carpets and draperies, although one can also find every imaginable merchandise—home accessories, kitchenware, shoes, firecrackers and even rifles! Fruits, soft drinks and snacks abound. The bazaar takes up not just the sidewalks but also part of the road, so traffic here is often crawling. Bargaining is encouraged despite the already-attractive prices.

Pasar Baru

Pasar Baru is a rare street in Jakarta, in that you can actually stroll along it. It's definitely not for the branded shoppers, but more for those looking for stores with old-time feeling. Locals come here for family-owned stores that mostly sell shoes, textiles and watches. Have lunch in Bakmi Gang Kelinci or Bakmi Abun, both are long-time favorites of noodle fans, then shop for second-hand fashion in Metro Atom (closed on Sundays). Vintage shirts, dresses, belts, jackets and everything are as cheap as USD1-don't forget to bargain though. No vehicles are allowed in Pasar Baru, so begin the walk from Metro Atom at Jalan H. Samanhudi then take the long-needed walk towards the rear end where the historic Gedung Kesenian Jakarta (Jakarta's Art Center) is located.
