The study focused on preservation system and efforts such as funding, management, ownership, stakeholder’s involvement, spatial distribution within the sites, community concerns on tourism and signage besides the physical setting of the sites. This explorative research used qualitative approach to obtain more accurate results in the context of comparisons between two cultural heritage sites. In this study, we do field and online observation techniques, documentation, notes and literature studies. To obtain the primary data, on-site observation sessions were conducted directly in the Old Town Central Hong Kong and Kota Tua Jakarta area, in-depth interviews and photo documentation was made as well. Besides, the secondary data collection for the Old Town of Jakarta was done through online literature study in the form of news, trip advisor and travel note.
