This is where you can have a low-cost movie date with your partner. Cine space offers an alternative movie space where they often play some indie movies or other Indonesian movies that you might have missed on the big screen theaters. It’s just the right place to have a movie without much commotion in the place.
  • Como Park
Try coming here on Sunday morning, the dog park in Kemang area would be filled with many fluffy dogs that come around to hang out with their furry friends. It’s a very therapeutic place to hang out at, as you can see many dogs running around while you can grab a gelato at Gelato Secrets or a pizza at Pizza Place in Como Park area.
