There’s something about being near the sea. The cool wind on your face, the susurrus songs of the waves wafting through the air and the briny smell wash away the stresses of the day. Alone or with a friend, it’s a place to let thoughts roam freely, dip, zoom, fly, dance, float, glide and salsa across the mind’s landscape. Inhale, exhale and feel the toxicities of the day carried away by the wind. Inhale, exhale and feel positive energy meander through your soul. It’s a place to leave the past, face the present and ponder on the future to come.
Ancol Jakarta Bay City is the largest recreation park that offers a whiff of the sea breeze to urbanites locked in the concrete jungle. Whether you want to simply enjoy a stroll on the promenade, float on the waters, fish or ride a boat, the Ancol Complex at North Jakarta is the momentary escape route to nature.
