Decide What to Bring

Considering what to bring is important so that you are always prepared and comfortable. Here are some items you can bring.

  1. Drinks. Do you enjoy exploring? Prepare bottled water to stay hydrated! If you run out, you can buy them at the available stands.
  2. Money. If you need cash for ticket payments or food and drinks, there are banks and ATMs available. You can go to Gedung Pusat Niaga on the 1st floor, Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 15:00 for banking. ATMs are also available on the 1st floor of the Gedung Pusat Niaga and in the Food Area Hall E (Outdoor Area), operating 24/7.
  3. Shopping bag. Don't forget to bring a shopping bag if you plan to do a lot of shopping. A shopping bag can help you carry your purchases conveniently!
  4. Bring or keep the location map. The Jakarta Fair Kemayoran venue is quite large. To avoid confusion about which stands to visit, take a look at the location map.

  1. Hat or umbrella. The Jakarta Fair Kemayoran venue is divided into indoor and outdoor areas. If you plan to visit the outdoor stands, be prepared with a hat or umbrella to protect yourself from the sun!

Decide How You Will Go

Are you taking your own vehicle to the venue? Make sure that you get to secure a parking spot. There are four parking areas: Gedung Pusat Niaga (GPN), Sayap Utara, Sayap Timur, dan Sayap Barat.

It is also recommended to go to Jakarta Fair Kemayoran by public transportation. Indecisive whether to go by the bus or train? Well, it is time to download the JAKI Super Appwhere you can see the nearest stations. Follow these steps:

  1. open JAKI

  1. click Lainnya;

  1. choose the JakPeta feature;

  1. look at the Transportation section; and

  1. pick Bus Stop, Halte TJ, Stasiun MRT, or Stasiun LRT. For instance, choose Bus Stop. Then, it shows that the nearest non-BRT bus stop is 140 metres away, meanwhile the BRT bus stop is 177 metres away.
