Whoever knows the city of Jakarta would also know the National Monument (Monas). If you have never been there, you might think that it’s hot and noisy, as it is located at the very center of the city surrounded by busy roads. Actually that’s not true at all. Not only situated within a huge square, the square itself is surrounded by tall mahogany trees. The surrounding trees keep the area away from road noises, making it a nice place to relax or read books. Plus you are also able to breath clean air and feel the breeze.
