Fixed-priced stores are becoming more common in Jakarta, but bargaining is still the norm wherever there is no marked price. When buying antiques and handicrafts, bargain down to 30-40% of the original asking price, especially on Jl Surabaya. Shopping malls are a way of life in Jakarta, an escape from the traffic and smog, and new shopping malls are being constructed all the time. Some of the most convenient include Grand Indonesia, Jl MH Thamrin 1, with banks, designer clothes stores, bookshops and restaurants (recommended); Plaza Indonesia, Jl MH Thamrin Kav 28-30, with top brands, good dining options and beautiful people; EX Mall, Jl MH Thamrin Kav 28-30, favouring younger shoppers with high street brands, cinema and fast-food joints; and Plaza Senayan, Jl Asia Afrika, 1000-2200. Suave and sophisticated and deliciously cool, with a cinema.
