Ancol Dreamland (Taman Impian Ancol)
There’s a small admission charge for Ancol Dreamland itself, which includes access to its lively art market, beaches, and food options. Fees for the individual attractions are more substantial, although cheaper during the week than on weekends or public holidays. Popular packages include a combo ticket with entrance to the Fantasy World theme park and the Sea World Ancol marine wildlife attraction, or tickets with entrance to just Faunaland or the ecopark. For ease, some packages include door-to-door round-trip transport from Jakarta hotels.
Things to Know Before You Go
Ancol Dreamland is a good choice for families with kids.
Ancol Dreamland is sufficiently large that taxis operate inside it. Free shuttles run between different parts of the park.
Pollution is a major issue at all Jakarta beaches. Ancol’s are no exception.
The Ancol Dreamland area is wheelchair-accessible, but access to individual attractions varies widely.
How to Get There
Ancol Dreamland is located on the waterfront in downtown Jakarta, around 4 miles (7 kilometers) north of MONAS (National Monument of Indonesia). It’s on Corridor 5 of the TransJakarta rapid transit bus system and will eventually have an MRT station. In the meantime, most travelers will find it easiest to join a tour or hire a private driver.
When to Get There
Ancol Dreamland is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, although individual attractions have shorter hours. It can be a lively and atmospheric spot to visit at night, although weekends and Indonesian public holidays are extremely crowded. Don’t even think about visiting during the Lebaran holiday at the end of Ramadan.
What Is There to Do at Ancol Dreamland?
