Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk

Do you live at Jakarta?
Have you ever feel so strees stay at the busy city? Full of traffic and high building?
Maybe this place can be a good place to relax and at once as a learning-recreation for children.


Today I went to Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk located at Pantai Indah Kapuk, North Jakarta. This is a nature conservation area which is used for outdoor activities that well known as ecotourism

ticket for adult
For entering this area, adults have to pay IDR 25.000 per person at the gate and you will get a ticket to show at the next stop. After got the ticket, you have to walk inside around 100 m and then show your previous ticket to the officers. They will see it and asking you this question, "do you bring a kind of camera besides the cell phone camera?." This question is important because visitor strictly prohibited to bring any kind of camera inside the conservation area. If someone do not follow the regulation, you have to pay amercement up to IDR 1.000.000.
In this place, visitors can perform a variety of exciting outdoor activities that are beneficial to the environment, especially for Jakarta. I can see various spots  and facilities availables are:
- Mangrove forest
 I can see the mangrove forest directly and touch the mangrove trees and leaves.

- Conservation area
This area used for planting mangrove trees that will give good impact for environment as a prevention of erosion (coastal erosion by sea water) and to prevent the intrusion of sea water (sea water seeped into the land up to the river).

- Making of organic fertilizer
Visitors can find the spot for making of organic fertilizer that used to fertilize planted mangrove.

- Water tourism
This place also have some boats that will take you to a tour around the swamp for 5 until 6 person by paying around IDR 350.000.

- Praying room for Moslem
Thay have two places as praying room. First is at the front of complex near with entry gate, and the second one is at ne location of conservation.

- Canteen
Provide instant noodles  with ice tea and several kind of cold bottle drink.

- Playing ground for children under 12 yo
The children can play around this ground, and don't worry it also have a big place for people or parents to sit and enjoy the food and drink during they are playing.

- Homestay
I saw some homestays at the front of conservation area when entering this place. Maybe they stay here for do some research or something about mangrove.

Before you go there, do not forget to use sunblock, use a comfort shoes and clothes, and of course bring your sunglasses and umbrella to protect yourself from the sun's heat.

How to get there:
I used one of the mass transportation is Trans Jakarta corridor 9A (Pinang Ranti - Pluit) it will end at last stop is at Pluit Village. After that you have to walk straight until you see the traffic light, then waiting for red car transportation number B01 (Grogol - Muara Angke). Stop at the gate of Pantai Indah Kapuk at the end of Muara Karang street (near Pizza Hut). The last by taxi to get the Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk (follow the road to the PIK Hospital then go straight near Yayasan Buddha Tzu Chi).

If you at the gate of Pantai Indah Kapuk, you can walk to enter the complex the accross the bridge, at the right side you will find Suaka Margasatwa Muara Angke. This place is different with Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk. I want to go there but today it is closed. So, I can not telling anythng about this place.
