Taman Mini Indonesia Indah which literally translates to Beautiful Indonesia Miniature Park is your chance to see the diversity of magnificent Indonesia all in one day!
A short trip from Jakarta, this theme park is built over 100 hectares and has a realistic miniature reproduction of all the Indonesian islands in a central lake. Surrounding the lake are several pavilions, each representing a different province, right from the province’s architecture style to an exhibition of the province’s cultural artifacts. The centerpiece of this magnificent park is a gorgeous artificial lake, where you can also go for a boat ride.
Taman Mini Indonesia showcases the vast variety of plant species across Indonesia in the numerous gardens created within the park. Also included are a walk-in bird park, multiple museums and a recreation area with gardens, swimming pools and restaurants.
Reflecting Indonesia’s social and cultural diversity, the park has temples and mosques and religious buildings of several faiths to showcase the tolerance and religious harmony between the multiple faiths that coexist in the country. To further showcase the rich culture of Indonesia, the park showcases cultural performances, events and local delicacies from each of the country’s provinces.
Things to do and see at Taman Mini Indonesia
It is easy to spend the whole day in the park and still not have a chance to experience all that it has to offer. While you are there, take the cable car ride to get an aerial view of the park or rent cycles to go through the provinces you couldn’t wouldn’t be able to explore otherwise. Take help from your local guide from Locaguide to find your way around the park. He will also be able to tell you specialties and the difference in the provinces for a better understanding of Indonesian heritage.
If you missed out on buying souvenirs during your city tour of Jakarta, Taman Mini Indonesia is also a great place to pick up something from every province of Indonesia. The recreational park stays true to its slogan “Visit Taman Mini, Love Indonesia”, which reminds you how vast, diverse and hospitable the country of Indonesia is.0
