The complete Guide: Everything you need to know about Mall of Indonesia.
Mall of Indonesia is a shopping complex located in Kelapa Gading – an area of North Jakarta. To help you place its location into context, it is about 9.5 km northeast of the Monas – Indonesia’s National Monument that is located in central Jakarta.
The acronym ‘MOI’ is commonly used throughout Jakarta to represent Mall of Indonesia.
Mall of Indonesia’s location is a bit unique from other malls in Jakarta because it is surrounded by an integrated complex of apartments and shops. The direct area around the mall doesn’t really look like other places in Jakarta because of the way the development is set up.
It is possible to completely walk around Mall of Indonesia without having to deal with heavy road traffic because it feels like another city, isolated all by itself. Naturally, the adjacent apartment buildings provide MOI with a lot of local shoppers.
The construction of Mall of Indonesia was finished in 2008 and it has recently been going through some additional renovations.
When you shop at Mall of Indonesia you will notice that it has some large anchor stores and the usual mix of local and international branded stores as well.
Overall, however, it definitely offers more activities for children in comparison to other malls of similar size in Jakarta. It has been branded in the past as a family-oriented shopping complex. Therefore, if you have children and you are in Jakarta it’s a pretty good place to spend some time.
Indoor playgrounds, arcades, and some gymnastic courses are some of the things you will find at Mall of Indonesia. There is also a cinema on the top floor of the mall that plays both international and domestic movies. If a movie is shown in English, then Bahasa Indonesia subtitles are provided for local viewers.
Mall of Indonesia also has a hotel called All Sedayu Hotel Kelapa Gading physically attached to it. This is a very convenient place to stay if you want to get some shopping done at the mall or if you are conducting business in the Kelapa Gading area.
The Kelapa Gading area has a large population of Chinese Indonesians living there. Therefore, you will notice more restaurants tailoring their menus in Mall of Indonesia and the general area to suit the local population dynamics.
