Batavia is a location in 80 Days. It is situated in Indonesia, on the bay of Jakarta.
The Dutch call the fort of Batavia the "Verheven Stad", the Exalted City, which floats above the swamplands of Kali Besar, with a view towards the harbour of Sunda Kelapa. It is a multicultural city, where Dutch, Javanese and Chinese establishments sit peacefully next to one another.
The chief form of transportation in the city is the harimau, a steam-boat fashioned like a tiger, whose paddle-wheels enable it to travel around on the difficult terrain. Although the main area is largely populated by the Dutch, the further south one goes, the livelier the atmosphere gets.
While touring the city, Passepartout can catch sight of the rebel's subversive activities, under the banner of Sultanate of Aceh, who attempt to destroy the Exalted City. The conflict in the region owes much to the activity of the colonizing Dutch forces, which took Bandar Aceh in the previous year, galvanizing the forces of resistance. Passepartout may rescue one of the ladies participating in the riots against the Dutch, acquiring a Rebel flag in the process.
