2) Pasar Senen

Probably the most notorious place in Jakarta for second-hand get ups, Pasar Senen is also one of the cheaper thirft shops in town, with items costing as little as Rp10,000. Although a large part of Pasar Senen was recently damaged due to a fire, the unaffected wing is still well and truly open for business. The market is packed with small stalls, bursting with second hand clothes from all over the world. Make sure you bring your A-game bargaining skills, and if you’re susceptible to allergies, we recommend bringing some form of facial protection due to the dust around the place.
