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.
Jalan Metro Pondok Indah Blok III B
Jakarta Selatan 12310
+62 21 750 6750
Pondok Indah Mall, also called PIM, is a shopping mall that is located at Pondok Pinang South of Jakarta. It is divided into two major sections, PIM 1 and PIM 2, which are joined together by a bridge.
It also caters mainly to the upper class area of the city where most expatriates and wealthy Indonesian businessmen live. A thirty to forty minute drive from the city center will bring you to the Pondok Indahís location which will make you feel like you are driving along the streets of Beverly Hills as the wide streets are lined with towering palm trees.
All of its five floors are occupied by key tenants like Gramedia Bookstore, Hero Supermarket, Metro Department Store, etc that make up the mallís over 400 shops. For entertainment, you can check out the movie house called the Pondok Indah 21. There are restaurants, banks, etc. It is also home to the very first store in Indonesia of the famous American doughnut chain, Krispy Kremes.
With all these malls to visit in Jakarta, I highly suggest that you include shopping for an extra luggage in your budget. Grand malls like these would make you want to just shop and shop and bring home everything!
