There were already plans in the 1990-s, but now it seems to happen: the restoration of the historic old town of Semarang, nicknamed "Little Holland".

http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2...-old-town.html

I sincerely hope it will become a spectacular improvement, and something Semarang can be proud of. I only cannot learn from the article how they are going to persuade the 177 private owners to invest in the 'right' restoration of their buildings.

Yes it appear that Semarang's oldtown have better future than Jakarta's, they have wonderfully restored Kolonialebank and painted over several crumbling structures. They're also planning to retivilize Surabaya's Tunjungan street, which once had been Surabaya's main shopping avenue.

Dutch East India Company Museum (VOC Museum) Ayutthaya, Thailand

Baan Hollanda was a Dutch village in Thailand built during the Ayutthaya era in 1634. Baan Hollanda was located on the Chao Phraya River close to the Tambon Suan Phlu shipyard in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya District, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Province, Thailand. Presently Baan Hollanda is being rebuilt on the original land with the intent of becoming an information centre and museum.

The term “Wilanda” was used by the Siamese in the past to mean those from the Netherlands, or the Dutch. It was derived from the Malay “Orang Belanda”, used to denote the Dutch in Java and elsewhere in the East Indies. “Belanda” itself was possibly derived from the Portuguese “Hollanda” (Holland).

The Dutch first established formal trade relations with Siam in 1604, towards the end of King Naresuan’s reign. In 1608, King Ekathotsarot granted permission to the Dutch East India Company (VOC) to open its trading post in Ayutthaya. The location was in the southern part of the walled island city and was a rather constricted space. Thus in 1634, during the reign of King Prasat Thong, a new VOC factory and trading office was built on land bestowed by the Siamese King as reward for Dutch naval aid in Ayutthaya’s war against Pattani. This new more commodious piece of land was situated next to the Chao Phraya River outside the walled city. Here goods could be loaded and unloaded much more conveniently than before.

In 2004, on the auspicious occasion of the 400th anniversary of relations between Thailand and the Netherlands, Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses Prince Willem-Alexander (The Prince of Orange) and Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, visited the site of the Dutch settlement in Ayutthaya where the Fine Arts Department had been excavating the remains of the VOC lodge. Her Majesty graciously donated a sum of money towards the construction of an information centre, with a permanent exhibition, which may be considered a memorial of the long relations between the two countries.

@Kevo, Thanks!

I still think Medan has more potential to revive the old district than Jakarta. In Medan there are many well preserved old buildings and they are also standing quite close together. With the right spirit and some ambitious people, maybe one day the Kesawan can become something of an heritage attraction.

I forgot to add this picture last year! :P

Batavia!

Paleis van Daendels/Het Grootehuis/Wittehuis - Departement van Finansies

The Palace of Daendels, now the Ministry of Finance Building, is an early 19th century building in Sawah Besar, Jakarta, Indonesia.

During the rule of Governor-General Herman Willem Daendels (1808-1811), the administration and military were moved inland from downtown Batavia to Weltevreden, with a town planned around King's Square (Dutch: Koningsplein) and Waterloo Square (Dutch: Waterlooplein).

Much of the old town, including its walls and castle were torn down for construction materials to build new government and civic buildings in Weltevreden, such as the Palace. Construction on the Palace started in 1809 on the northeast side of Waterloo Square. The Empire style building is composed of a main part and two side wings, connected to each other by arched gates. While the main building was intended to become the private quarters of the Governor-General, the side wings would house government offices and guest rooms

Due to the war with the British, construction stalled and the building was not completed until 1828 by order of Leonard du Bus de Gisignies. Because of the size and colour, the building was also called the Big House (Dutch: Groote Huis) or White House (Dutch: Witte Huis).
