Go to new places
Sometimes, it is hard to fit a schedule to visit new places during the normal working day. However, since it is quite a long holiday with Christmas and new year’s eve, it might be a good day to visit places you have never visited with your family.
In order to do this, you need to first do a basic survey for what place you are going to go to and plan what you are going to do there. If you can, try finding a place that has many tourists attractions but are located near each other. This is to maximize your time, so you will not have to spend it all on the commute.
Be adventurous! Instead of going to the restaurant, why not try exploring the traditional dishes offered by the street vendors? You can do this all around Jakarta, or you can combine it with going to a new place you have never visited before with your family.
By going in blind, you might find many surprises. You might even find new favourite dishes among many things you try!
