About Jakarta


The sheer intensity of Jakarta, one of the world’s fastest developing metropolises, is likely to leave you somewhat frazzled. The locals, however, remain forever cool, calm and eternally friendly. The Indonesians are world famous for their sweet temperament, creating a friendly, small-town atmosphere – both in the booming city as on the country’s 17,000 islands.

Jakarta is truly an old city. It was first settled in the year 397. 

Get lost in the atmosphere of the streets of Chinatown among aromatic chop houses and colourful markets. Ask a local to point the way to the city’s old colonial quarter, where you can pamper yourself with fancy cocktails in chic new nightclubs. Jakarta is no natural beauty, but once you get to know her, she will lure you in with her generous offerings: from old city atmosphere to swanky shopping malls, high tech skyscrapers and flea markets in one action-packed day.

Jakarta is sometimes called ‘the Big Durian’ – a stinky Indonesian equivalent of ‘the Big Apple’.
