Jakarta is OK as far as big busy Asian cities go. It's spread out, easily accessible by train or plane. Spreads out over a large landscape and is centered around the old Dutch harbour come fish market. Nice stop off point to explore Java.

Having a historical value is one thing, but the place has nothing to indicate its glorious past as one of the most important ports in the colonial age. During the colonial age, Sunda Kelapa harbor was the port of Dutch colonial headquarter in Java island....More

No fish market in this area. But you can go to muara karang and there you can find more fishes and seafood - better in the afternoon.
