When in the best time to visit the Indonesia National Monument?
To avoid large crowds, you may consider visiting on a weekday rather than a weekend. Also, early mornings typically experience smaller crowds, and Jakarta can be hot midday. For the most comfortable experience, it's recommended to visit in the morning, afternoon or early evening. If you choose to visit during the daytime, it's wise to carry an umbrella or wear a hat to block the sun.
What time of day is the fountain show?
A celebration of Indonesian heritage and national pride, the Indonesia National Monument fountain shows are a must-see Jakarta attraction and popular among locals and visitors alike. The fountain shows are held each Saturday and Sunday night from 19:00 to 20:00 and lasts roughly 35 minutes. Located in Central Jakarta, the fountain shows are visible from historic Merdeka Square next to the Indonesia National Monument.
