Jakarta’s biggest exhibition, the Jakarta Fair, opens today in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, offering more products and entertainment than before.
Held annually for the past 42 years under different names, the Jakarta Fair Kemayoran is organized to commemorate the anniversary of Jakarta’s founding, which falls on June 22.
Admission tickets to the fair cost Rp 15,000 ($1.50) Monday through Thursday, and Rp 20,000 Friday through Sunday, but some say these prices are too steep, especially as they are higher than they were before 2007.
