Im pretty sure that most of us has been to Ikea once. This is my second time I visited Ikea and i still had an overall fun experience.
Ikea originated in Sweden around 70 years ago, the so called “Ikea experience” to the customer in the store had to be interesting, family-friendly, enjoyable and fun.
The very first Ikea store in Indonesia was opened since late 2014, its located in Alam Sutera,Tangerang. Until today, Ikea is still a very popular place to go to in Jakarta.
Ikea’s system of self-service (DIY) has made their furniture much more affordable and also made us independent.
Covering 35,000 sqm, Ikea has over 50 room showcases and 3 complete homes to inspire us. It also has a restaurant which could fit 700 people on the first floor, a supply room with everything shown on the showcases and approximately 1,000 car parks.You will find everything you need in just one location.
Walking around Ikea is tiring, so I stopped by at their restaurant to gain my energy back. There are not much choices to choose from but their food prices are relatively cheap!
After I replenished my energy, I went down and looked for bits and pieces i needed for my home and after many turns, I finally found the cashier.
Afterwards, I went to the Food market in (front of the cashiers) where they sell imported biscuits and drinks.
Before going home, we had to stop at the snack shop to buy the famous Rp, 4,000 Ice cream served in a machine where you have to place a token in. The Ice cream tastes very rich and yummy. Not only does it sell ice-cream but the shop also sells hotdogs, chicken bread and more however it is a “must buy” to get the ice cream as it completes the Ikea experience.
Ikea is a huge place, I recommend you to go there when you have a full day to yourself as looking at the showcases and everything there would take a while!
