Busy train station but good services and places for food. If you are arriving at Gambir, the taxi queues are long. Consider waling outside the station to get a cab.

Located at the heart of Jakarta, close to National Monument, Presidential Palace and many government buildings. The station is small but many things are well-organised here. There are plenty of food choice here, mostly fast-food. To explore Jakarta from here is a good start.

I happen to stay around Gambir. The place has quite rushy. There are many small restaurants you can visit if you are hungry.

This station is only for long trip train (across Java). Now it's better manageable since the departure and arriving door is separated (north and south side), so it's more easy to ask your family to pick you up while arriving in this station. But for...More
