East Jakarta (Indonesian: Jakarta Timur) is the industrial quarter of Jakarta, and the location of Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, where you can see parts of Indonesia’s multi-ethnic community in one park; several golf courses; Cibubur campground; and Jakarta’s second airport, Halim Perdanakusuma airport.
- 1 Halim Perdana Kusuma International Airport (HLP IATA, or simply Halim) (is in East Jakarta). The airport is used by military, private jets, and pilots in training, and increasingly also by scheduled domestic flights by low-cost airline Citilink and full-service carrier Batik Air. Most major Indonesian cities can be reached by direct flights from Halim. Bus services are operated by DAMRI to Rawamangun Bus Terminal for Rp 20,000; to Pulogebang, Gambir station, and Bekasi for Rp 25,000; and to Depok, Bogor‘s Botany Square, and Soekarno-Hatta Airport for Rp 30,000. There are also taxi services. There are half-hourly bus services to Pulo Gadung, Rawamangun, and Kampung Rambutan bus terminals in East Jakarta (see also ‘by bus’ below).
The much larger Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, which serves many domestic and international flights, is on the other side of the city.
