Gathering
Meal, Playing and Discussion



The tour is then developed, not just visit the villagers, then finished, but we also initiated a meeting of residents to the settlement of visitors.

Students College from Norway  is an excellent example.  

After Norway College students visited the residents, came our turn to invite the citizens especially the children visiting the hotel.  
At first we made this, the hotel owners objected because noisy children.  
So we brought them at the Jakarta Art Center.
 

after that
back home, residence, hotel
or airport


Our aim and our hope in our meeting you will be part of our family together, where we can know each other and keep in touch, and in an unforgettable experience of your lifetime.

Once you leave our Jakarta
we do hope you get a broad and deep understanding of the residents in the village
and
also of course the city that never sleep:
Jakarta

Dear Pak Ronny and Ibu Anneke,
Terima kasih banyak untuk tour Anda ke kampung Luar Batang, Mesjid Istiqlal, Kota Tua dan Sunda Kelapa. We both enjoyed it very much. This was my (Bo’s) second tour, but first time for both of us to northern Jakarta.
As Australians, we believe it is important for us to have a good understanding of the people, culture and circumstances of one of our nearest neighbours, Indonesia. The Hidden Jakarta Tours help to directly introduce Australians (and other foreigners) to Indonesian people. With tour guides acting as translators, tour participants can interact with the community, ask questions and gain an insight into the lives of a large proportion of the population of Indonesia – those who live in ‘kampungs’, in environments vastly different to what many in the developed world would be familiar with.
Through this interaction, stepping inside the alleyways and homes of kampung residents and through further discussions with Pak Ronny, Ibu Anneke and their team, tour participants can gain an understanding of the sorts of issues impacting these people’s lives; for example, adequate housing, education for children and health care for the community.
We would highly recommend the Hidden Jakarta Tour as an activity to do while visiting Indonesia’s capital – you will learn a lot :)

Sampai jumpa lagi !
Salam,
Bo and Bron Raphael.
