Commuter Line Information for Tangerang Station
It is the terminal station on the Brown Line which connects Duri Station (which is located east of central Jakarta) all the way to Tangerang.
As already mentioned, Tangerang Station is the terminal stop on the Brown Line. Therefore, it isn’t possible to change to another train line once you arrive at the station.
If you want to access another line in this network, you will have to travel all the way east to Duri Station.
Duri Station is actually a stop on two lines: the Brown Line and also the Yellow Line.
It’s the other terminal station on the Brown Line, and just another stop on the Yellow Line. You can transfer between these two there.
Once you arrive at Duri and then transfer, you can head south to destinations such as Bogor, Nambo and Depok. This is a convenient alternative to driving south to these spots because as you probably have heard, the traffic can be horrific.
You can travel north on the Yellow Line to Ancol.
After Ancol you will loop around south to popular market areas such as Pasar Senen and Pasar Jatinegara.
Both of these markets can easily be accessed by getting out of their respective stations and walking a few hundred meters. In other words, they are very conveniently located. Expect bustling crowds and lots of goods at affordable prices.
Since Tangerang is the terminal stop on this line, there is only one station adjacent to it – Tanah Tinggi Station.
The distance between Tangerang and Tanah Tinggi Station is only about 1.6 km with Tanah Tinggi being to the east.
What is located around Stasiun Tangerang?
Stasiun Tangerang and the area around it isn’t particularly well known for attracting large tourist crowds.

Two of greater Jakarta’s best markets are within walking distance of the station: Pasar Anyar Tangerang and Pasar Lama Tangerang.
Pasar Anyar Tangerang is a massive market complex that is only 300 meters northeast of the station. You can easily walk there within a few minutes.
Pasar Lama Tangerang is still quite close to the station but to the west (only a few hundred meters). This is a traditional, busy market area with a Chinese influence.
There are also some interesting cultural sites around Tangerang Station as well.
The Benteng Heritage Museum is also worth checking out. It is is right beside Pasar Lama Tangerang. It is only 600 meters from the station which should take you only about 600 meters to walk there.
The Boen Tek Bio Chinese Temple is a must-see in this area as well.
It is situated on the very same street at the Benteng Heritage Museum and only a few meters away.
About 300 meters further south of the Temple is the Roemah Boeroeng Culinary Museum. Needless to say this area is one of the most interesting in all of Tangerang.

If you are planning on staying near Tangerang Station, then your accommodation options will be somewhat limited.

Some better, more upscale options include:

Since markets and cultural sights are so close to Tangerang Station it might also be a practical idea to stay in central Jakarta at one of the best hotels in the city like the Grand Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental or Hotel Kempinski Indonesia and the commute out to this area for a day trip.
This will still give you the chance to see these markets and museums while still having high quality accommodation choices to select from to suit your needs and preferences.
