Final thoughts about shopping at Citywalk Sudirman Jakarta
Citywalk Sudirman is not designed for full-day shopping. So if that is what you are looking for head to Central Park Mall or Grand Indonesia instead.
On the other hand, it is a pleasant regional mall that is great for socializing. This is an ideal environment for informal business meetings. A place where you can chat over a fresh cup of coffee.
Due to its strategic location near the MRT, Citywalk is really convenient to get to. You can walk there in 5 minutes or less from Setiabudi Station. If you were to compare this mall to other malls in Jakarta it is the most similar to Plaza Festival and CITOS (Cilandak Town Square).
All three of these shopping centers have shifted their focus away from shopping and more to developing a sustainable social environment for guests. You will find a lot of cafes and restaurants at all three of these venues.
