Taman Mini Indonesia Indah – Revisited

After many years, last Saturday my mom & aunt suggested that we go to Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (literarily translated it means Indonesia Beautiful Miniature Park).

It’s a cultured-based recreational area with rides and a lot of stuffs to offer but my favorite part is they house – literately speaking – traditional houses from every provinces of Indonesia. That means 26 different traditional houses, real size!

Lil’ A who is train crazed was uber excited when we rode the monorail while his Oma nearly had a heart attack hahaha. Seriously my mom hates rides and basically afraid of heights!

We didn’t get to check out the houses like I wanted because someone ehm…was too train focused so after the monorail he took a ride with a smaller train going around the area with my aunt’s husband.

After that he wanted to ride what they calls Sky Lift…This boy surely inherited his fearless side from both his parents!

There’s one new area there “Snow Bay” – no Indonesia doesn’t have any snows it’s a huge pool/playground area and it’s jammed packed.

Sadly, since the  place is government runs, signs of its old age shown – badly!  I really wish they’d taken better care of the place since Jakarta really doesn’t have that many nice theme park.

    Haven’t been there for such a long time. The last time I went there was when my family hosted a Lions Club Student Exchange from Australia.

    Hi Maureen.

    Perhaps you can help. I’ve got a deadline to finish updating Culture Shock! Jakarta and, as I’ve posted on Jakartass, I don’t have time to go to TMII and check whether East Timor (now Timor Leste) is still shown on the map in the lake that can be viewed from the cable car.

    Can you recall?

    Please email me asap.
