As one of the largest metropolis’ in the world, Jakarta is not a city to be passed over quickly. Most tourists visiting Indonesia end up in Jakarta, primarily because it is where one of the main airports is located. Unfortunately, however, most travelers use the city of Jakarta as a transit stop, and fail to take the time to appreciate Jakarta in all it’s crazy, bustling, high- energy glory.
Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia. Because of this, the city is rich with a distinct history and vibrant culture. Queue up on the street to try some of the best food in the world, and later, take a quick 30 minute boat ride to visit one of the “thousand islands” that Indonesia has to offer. A city of over 10 million people, we promise there will always be something interesting going on in the city. From music festivals, to open market places, to holy temples older than our mind can comprehend, Jakarta is sure to please even the most picky of travelers.
