Shop 'till you drop is a tour you can book in many big cities all over the world, but most of them don't even mention Jakarta. But Jakarta has a lot to offer for those who are just shopping crazy. The malls are big, very big and the prices are much lower than you could probably imagine! Below is a list of the biggest and best malls of Jakarta. You will find much more of them if you want to, each mall has it's own atmosphere.
Kelapa Gading Sports Mall is a mall that has a basketball field attached to it. It is located in Kelapa Gading, in North Jakarta. Kelapa Gading Sports Mall is the home base of the national basketball team Satria Muda.
During the planning and construction of the mall there were some protests, because the focus of the place would not be on sports, but on shopping. The basketball field of the mall is now frequently used as gathering place for political parties, religious events or sales events instead of a basketball match.
A sports cafe was located on the third level of the mall, but because the cafe allowed nude dances, the place became the target of heavy protests from the neighborhood and was eventually closed down. The cafe made it all the way into the book 'Jakarta Undercover 2' from writer Mohamar Emka.
