Pasar Baru is a rare street in Jakarta, in that you can actually stroll along it. It's definitely not for the branded shoppers, but more for those looking for stores with old-time feeling. Locals come here for family-owned stores that mostly sell shoes, textiles and watches. Have lunch in Bakmi Gang Kelinci or Bakmi Abun, both are long-time favorites of noodle fans, then shop for second-hand fashion in Metro Atom (closed on Sundays). Vintage shirts, dresses, belts, jackets and everything are as cheap as USD1-don't forget to bargain though. No vehicles are allowed in Pasar Baru, so begin the walk from Metro Atom at Jalan H. Samanhudi then take the long-needed walk towards the rear end where the historic Gedung Kesenian Jakarta (Jakarta's Art Center) is located.
