Taman Impian Jaya Ancol, or Ancol Dreamland, contains a tremendous variety of family recreation experiences – from Dunia Fantasi to the newest ride, "Extreme Log" (a simulator theater experience) and the Atlantis Water Adventure for those who enjoy swimming.

As the third wonder of Jakarta (see wonder no. 2 and no. 1). It also features Gelanggang Samudera, where you will be entertained by trained animal performances and sophisticated 4-dimension technology, and many other family recreation venues and facilities, such as Ice World, and the Kereta Sato-Sato that will transport you to beautiful Pantai Carnaval. There's also the Gondola, where you and your family can enjoy the beauty of the Jakarta Strait and the view of all of Taman Impian Jaya Ancol from an aerial tramway, and Sea World Indonesia, an enormous walk-in aquarium.

For those who enjoy culinary tourism, Taman Impian Jaya Ancol offers a great variety of food in a pleasant atmosphere on the shores of Jakarta Bay, with restaurants such as Jimbaran Resto, La Bridge, Bandar Djakarta, and The Back Stage. And after your hard day's recreation and eating, you and your family don't even need to face a long drive back home – you can stay at the Putri Duyung Cottages, with luxurious, comfortable accommodation cooled by gentle sea breezes.

If you like art, check out Pasar Seni, the Art Market, where painters, sculptors, and other artists produce their works and offer them at affordable prices. And while you are appreciating the art works, you will be entertained by music in various styles played by local bands.
