Wandering: Jalan Surabaya, Jakarta (May 21, 2013)


Again, like Passer Baroe, this trip was totally unplanned, and rather than a trip, I would say this was more like stumbling-upon. I was going to Taman Suropati, Menteng to check out something last Monday and then on my way to that place, I stumbled upon Jalan Surabaya, which was in walking distance from Taman Suropati (around 15-mins), or from Cikini Train Station for 5-mins walk.

I’ve known about and been to Jalan Surabaya before, so I wasn’t exactly surprised with what I found, but still, I enjoyed walking through the quite lane, plus there were thick-set branches that shield you from the glaringly-hot sun. :]

Welcome to Jalan Surabaya!

Jalan Surabaya is 500-m long street famous for its antique stalls lining one side of it. In this place you can find many things probably imaginable for the word ‘antique’ and ‘odd’—made from wood, ceramics and metals, like bronze—at a bargain price than ones on mall or established stores. That, and at the other end of the street you can also find bags and suitcases for traveling.
