Towering over the cityscape, the National Monument is an unmistakable sight in the Indonesia capital of Jakarta. This striking structure can be found at Merdeka Square and those in search of accommodation at a nearby hotel Jakarta can choose Alila Jakarta. This well placed Jakarta hotel also offers easy access to the National Museum and is an ideal base for your sightseeing tours. Reaching to a height of around 132 metres, the remarkable National Monument also known as the Monas features a flame on top covered by a gold foil. One of the highlights here is the observation deck which can be reached via an elevator. Once atop you can enjoy truly spectacular views of the surrounding area and take in the stunning cityscape of this culturally rich metropolis.
