Serpong is a great place to stay in Jakarta as many of the city’s star attractions are within easy driving distance. Two sights that should be on every visitor’s itinerary is the fascinating Ocean Park and the ever-popular Living World. Two other recommended attractions that are located nearby Serpong are the Gading Raya Golf Course and the Summarecon Mall Serpong.
Take time out from the sights and indulge in a game of golf at the Pangkalan Jati Golf Course in Depok.
Serpong is a place of proud sporting traditions. Visit Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, home to the Indonesia National Team soccer team and the Persija Jakarta. Depending on the score, either celebrate or commiserate with friendly locals after the game in one of the nearby watering holes.
