Capital of Indonesia this teeming megalopolis is a dynamic place full of life.
Although its streets can feel frenetic and chaotic at times, Jakarta’s almost thirty-million residents are a welcoming and friendly bunch. Its fast pace of development means that the city is constantly changing, as high-rises and tower blocks spring up though the delightful Chinatown and colonial buildings of the old town help show another side to Jakarta. There are a plethora of fantastic restaurants, atmospheric cafes and lively bars for you to enjoy, as well as a raucous nightlife scene. Truly representative of all Indonesia, its residents highlight the country’s cultural diversity in their cuisine, customs and the products they sell.
