Personal highlights

  1. Sunda Kelapa: important historic harbor for the development of Java and Indonesia
  2. Local Guide: feeling lucky to tour the historic area with a local guide (for a tip only)
  3. History: documented by the Chinese in 12th and occupied by Malay in 13th century
  4. Today: degraded to a minor port, only port to host the historic two masted Pinisi ships
  5. Batavia: the Dutch East Indian Company was building a new city from this very harbor
