Shopaholics and tourists are expected to flock to Jakarta as the capital hosts the annual Jakarta Great Sale Festival with special offers and discounts at shopping centres and stores across town.
Governor Fauzi Bowo opened the festival on Friday. The event wraps up on 14 July and hopes to help turn the capital into one of the major shopping destinations in the region and the world.
This year, 73 malls and shopping centres will take part in the festival to celebrate Jakarta’s 485th anniversary, offering discounts of up to 70 percent.
