Sunda Kelapa Harbor

Sunda Kelapa Harbor
Jalan Maritim Raya, North Jakarta

The old port area of Sunda Kelapa remains today a bustling hub for those involved in the vibrant interfiled trade, along with being a center of activity for fresh fish auctioneers. Graceful Bugis phinisi choosers, the world's last wind powered sailing fleet used for trade, still berth at the quay as they have for centuries, receiving and shipping out a wide range of the islands' bounty. Best visited in the early morning.
