This huge miniature park (a miniature of an archipelago of 15,000+ islands spanning three time zones would still be huge, wouldn't you think?) is an excellent finale to your Jakarta trip. It is also a delightful appetizer for your trip to the rest of Indonesia (what? Don't tell me you are heading back home immediately after Jakarta?).
The park is built to portray the thousands of islands of Indonesia and their hundreds of different ethinicities, cultures, and languages. It is practically an open-air museum with a live-size structures representing the many architectural forms uniqute to the 27 seven provinces of Indonesia.
The park has an orchid garden, a bird park with a walk-in aviary, a fauna museum, and recreational grounds with swimming pool and restaurants. Representatives of the arts and crafts and traditional attires of the many cultures of Indonesia can be found inside the Museum Indonesia, housed in the richly decorated, Balinese style building.
TMII also houses the "Theater Imax Keong Emas" (Golden Snail Theater), the only Imax theater in Indonesia. Catch the "Beautiful Indonesia" on a gigantic, 3D screen before you go to see the real thing.
