Just like the name, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah is a miniature park that represents Indonesia. Located in the capital Jakarta, the park exhibits an enthralling culture of the entire 300 ethnic groups in the country. As a matter of fact, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah exhibits Indonesia’s beauty from over 17.000 islands.

At 1.5 km square area. It is a wonder how the park manages to squeeze the country’s rich diversity in such a relatively small space. Taman Mini Indonesia Indah or TMII was founded in 1975 by Tien Soeharto. The first lady of Indonesia’s second president.

There’s a large artificial lake in the middle of the park called Indonesia miniature lake. In short, the lake forms artificial islands to replicate the Indonesian archipelago. Encircling the lake, traditional houses from 33 provinces of Indonesia were built on a real-life scale.

The entrance ticket to TMII doesn’t include the Ferris wheel ride that cost Rp50.000.

Apart from the traditional houses, there are over 50 attractions to explore. In total, Taman Mini has 19 museums, 7 nature parks, 3 cultural parks, 4 recreational parks, and other fun attractions to try.

One of the most striking structures built here is the Keong Mas IMAX theater. The stack shell architecture might look like it tries to imitate Sidney Opera House. But the design, in fact, resembles the golden snail ‘Keong mas’ from famous Indonesian folklore.

Rent A Bike & Explore Anjungan

The best way to get around the vast area of Taman Mini Indonesia Park area is by bike. Which is available for rent at Rp15.000/hour. First, go to the nearby Anjungan which is the closest one to the park’s entrance. Anjungan is what the traditional houses are called. At Anjungan, prepare for a cultural trip from Aceh to Papua traditional houses.

At Jogjakarta’s Joglo house, try to play the traditional instrument Gamelan. Then, walk through a beautiful Balinese gate “Candi Bentar” when exploring Bali’s Anjungan. Eventually, when passing the West Sumatra’s Anjungan, it’s hard to miss the sight of a colorful Gadang traditional house.

Here visitors can learn about the only matriarch society in Indonesia, the Minang tribe. Continue to go on the bike, because there are still 30 other traditional houses to explore.

Taman Mini Indonesia Indah Museum

Among the 19 museums at TMII, some are definitely not to miss. Asmat Museum will bring visitors away to Papua, the westernmost province of Indonesia popular for its Raja Ampat diving spot. But away from the ocean, the Asmat tribe lives deep in the Papuan jungle. Get to know about their customs and traditions in this museum.

Try to make some beats with a war drum instrument called Tifa. And learn how to make Asmat’s staple food, the sagoo. The Museum of Indonesian fauna stands out with its giant Komodo architecture. It’s a museum, not a zoo. So expect to meet a lot of preserved animals from birds, butterflies, mammals, marine biota, and reptiles.But go outside to the backyard and be delighted as there are some real Komodo dragons living here. There are other living reptiles too, such as crocodiles and tortoises.

Garden and Nature Parks

Gardens at TMII are where TMII visitors could take a quiet break with greens and nature. Park the bike and instead, go for a walk at the bird park. Swans and koi fishes swim in a small artificial river, while pelicans walk casually among people. Play several minutes with friendly pigeons before heading to jasmine and the cactus garden nearby.

Learn Indonesian aquatic fauna at Freshwater Aquarium Park. At Aquarium park, be ready to observe about 126 species of Indonesian freshwater fishes here. Arowana (Scleropages formosus). A type of fish mainly found in the Borneo rivers is on display.

Along with its local sibling shark saws (Pristis microdon), and Tapah (wallago leerii). The collection also extends to fishes from other tropical countries. Enjoy the sight of the giant Arapaima, a giant freshwater fish that originated from South America.

Theme Parks

After all the educational visits to museums, parks, and traditional houses, it’s time to have some fun.  Experience again the nostalgic childhood at Istana Anak. The Disneyland of TMII. Ride the rabbit train or get on to the Ferris wheel.

It’s easy to spot the golden snail building since it glitters under the sun. Go to Theater IMAX Keong Mas to watch an Indonesian classic folktale. Take a ride with a Gondola, where riders can have a nice view of the Indonesia Archipelago Lake from above. Lastly, strip off Jakarta’s heat from the body by swimming at Snowbay Waterpark.

How To Get To Taman Mini Indonesia Indah

From Soekarno Hatta International Airport, visitors could go to Taman Mini Indonesia Indah by rental car or taxi. While the journey takes 1 hour. Certainly, it does not include time wasted being trapped in Jakarta’s horrendous traffic.  Using a taxi straight from the airport is also expensive.

Therefore, choose public transport instead. Use a Damri bus with the route from Soekarno Hatta Airport to Tamini Square. Visitors can find Damri busses near the airport’s Terminal 3. From Tamini Square, make transit and hop on to a bus heading for the Taman Mini entrance. For a faster option, visitors can use a taxi service from Tamini Square to the destination.
