The first thing that travelers find in PRJ is the variety of food stands that line the streets. Especially if travelers use Transjakarta. Then travelers will immediately enter the gates of the Gambir Expo which is filled with food stands at the front.
In addition, there was also Peak Coolinary. This area is a special area for culinary tourism. A variety of food stands are available. Starting from the typical food of the archipelago to foreign countries.
This area is a little different from the other areas. Because to transact here, travelers need to exchange money into special coins. At Coolinary Peak, merchants will only accept transactions using this coin.
Then, if travelers continue to the inside of the Gambir Expo. Travelers will find the culinary area again. This is an open culinary area. Travelers can transact directly using ordinary money.
