Jakarta Administration to Charge Medan Merdeka Square Visitor

Jakarta administration plans to apply an entrance fee of Rp 2,000 to Rp 5,000 per person to any visitors of the Medan Merdeka Square. Currently, visitors can enter the park for free. They are only required to buy a ticket when they want to enter the museum on the second floor and another ticket when they want to go to the top of the monument.

Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, acting Governor of Jakarta, said that the entrance fee to the Medan Merdeka Square is not against the Provincial Regulation No 3/2012 on fees since the law only stated that the fee was applied “until the monument’s cup”, which he interpreted as covering the entire park.
