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.
The Entertainment X'nter (also known as e'X, Plaza e'X, or Plaza Indonesia e'X) is a shopping mall located in Menteng, Central Jakarta directly beside the Japanese Embassy.
The mall becomes one of the most upscale malls in Jakarta when it opened in mid 2004. Unlike its predecessor Plaza Indonesia, e'X caters to a younger demographic of teenagers and young adults and enjoys an overwhelming popularity among these age groups.
Entertainment X'nter consisted of several yellow and orange colored square-shaped buildings joined together at different angles with a bridge connecting to Plaza Indonesia. It was designed by Australian architectural firm Denton Corker Marshall, for which they won the 2005 Indonesian Institute of Architects Award for Architecture – Category Commercial Building.
Initially designed as a temporary building soon to be demolished to make way for Plaza Indonesia extension, the building contains no basement with all retail space housed on the second and third level of the building while the first level is used for limited sheltered parking.
