The capital of Indonesia, Jakarta comes alive each year as a wide range of cultural festivals and events are celebrated in the city, each offering something new to experience. Those in search of a centrally located Jakarta hotel from which to explore the city and visit venues where these events will be held can consider staying at Alila Jakarta. This Jakarta city hotel not only makes an ideal base for leisure travellers, but corporate clientele too.
The Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year is one not to be missed festival in the capital and those visiting during late January or February can look forward to everything from lion dances to dragon boat races. The Chinatown area (Glodok) in particular is well worth visiting. Those arriving in March can look forward to the Java Jazz Festival, while June is when the Festival Jalan Jaksa is held, where one can witness Betawi cultural shows amidst a street festival atmosphere. Also worth experiencing are the Independence Day celebrations held on August 17th which include a variety of parades that take place in front of the Presidential Palace.
