Jakarta's answer to Disneyland, Ancol Dreamland -- otherwise known as Taman Impian Jaya Ancol -- is a huge theme park on Jakarta's waterfront. If you've got kids, this is Jakarta's top option for them. The main attraction is the Fantasyland (Dunia Fantasi) amusement park with its twisty rollercoaster, flume, swinging ship, Ferris wheel and other rides. Ancol Dreamland is so large and spread out that you have to use rickshaws and gondola cable cars to see the whole place. Avoid the park on weekends, when it gets incredibly packed.
