Their shopping centres here are huge & luxurious!
And to make its mark, there is this mega shopping mall right in the heart of Jakarta, with a name that says it all - Grand Indonesia!
Despite the many malls all over Jakarta, all of which are rather huge & grand themselves, but this mall makes it presence felt even from afar.
And if the outside exudes its physical size, inside this shopping centre exudes luxury and comfort.
There are simply so many levels of shopping, with every level/ segment catering to a different different theme.
Walking at every corner gives a different experience. There are the more family oriented corners with fully packed restaurants, the upper range segment with a great full rows of big restaurants, and the fashion district.
Each segment has a different feel, mainly due to the decorations, which makes some parts of the mall very theme park like.
One will know when entering the restaurant areas, as you can see the decorations lit up accordingly.
There is also the lounge for the tired legs.
One part that I like most about this mall is its cinema (multiplex). This multiplex area is quite ahead of its time... and really a rest area for people to chill out and not just to watch movies.
The cafe beside it really adds to this 'glamour' feel with its high ceilings, beautiful modern interior & high windows for a good view of Jakarta city. It gives a feeling like being in a huge tower.
Truly, the experience here fits in well with what I think the country is promoting - ie. grandness. I must say, they did this with class & style.
And though there are so many malls around, but I think this is one mall every visitor should at least visit to fully experience Jakarta, Indonesia! :)
