This 500-year-old harbor area was a vital link to markets of the outside world for the 15th century kingdom of Pajajaran. It was formerly the harbor town of Sunda Kelapa where the Portuguese traded with the Hindu Kingdom of Pajajaran in the early 16th century. Since than this port has belonged to the portuguese and Dutch.
Sunda Kelapa is at present a fisherman's wharf and an inter island port, the harbor is still one of the most important calls for sailing vessels from all over Indonesia.
How to get there, the easy and cheap one is take Busway to Kota , and get down at the end of the Busway line (Stasiun Beos) , then get Kopami (blue bus) number 02 to Sunda Kelapa (ask people there) ...stop near the brige between Musium Bahari and Sunda Kelapa
Or from Statiun Beos, walk few minutes to Museum Bank Mandiri, and wait there for mikrolet number 15, and it will go to the harbour...(ask the driver)
Or ..if you confuse with all of it, from Statiun Beos, take Ojeg.....hehehehehe.....hope not more the 5000
