Jakarta's City Rail Network may not look like much, but its a very extensive metro rail network and does its job quite effectively connecting Jakarta with its surrounding suburbs.

Nice update for INDONESIA! Hats off Indoberry

Though if we may limit to just our capital region. this is Jakarta vs Manila. I understand you have a lot of development too in your country as we do.. I limit my posting here just to keep the thread fair. Good that you got those skyscrapers now, but we are discussing about the density of skyscrapers around the 2 metros, as a simple barometer @ 50fls and up. you may refer to my links, you can count if you wish too.

Wait for my updates if you wanna see other developments outside of metro manila as well, I will give a neck and neck images compilation. about airports outside of the metro, highways, ports, destinations etc. but not here, I've created new threads just to keep this thread objective

re: train, yes you might have the longest line but i find those coasters a bit old, and i believe some are diesel powered like our provincial trains too... though huge, and I appreciate the images again. any update on your metro system? its about time for Indonesia to have those, as we have those since 1981, though not that super modern as the Japan's JR subways.. I seen some images of monorail prototype for Jakarta btw..

Also our train are these: a traditional active trains @ around 500kms more or less in south of metro manila (provincial), the old system in the north were destroyed and not operational now a days (around 250kms), then a newly approved metro system for davao city in Mindanao, just don't know how long..(provincial line).

Goin back to the capital region metro system of around 150kms with some subway stations, plus ongoing experimental monorails around the metro (metro manila). not to include other proposed and APPROVED metro system trains going outside of metro manila.

Goin back to thread discussion, I'm inviting you to share your analysis on the matters, standards of living, skyline, if you could share us details on the condominiums in Jakarta, etc about your City please! I've posted my comparative study regarding GDP of the 2 metropolis.

Terima Kasih boss!

Thanks Rajko

I don't think 500 kms is a good length for a train system. Indonesia's trainsets are continually being renewed with newer trains and I find the executive trains here to be one of the best in Southeast Asia. Java had just finished double-tracking over 1000 kms of line from Jakarta to Surabaya and several train route development is being started in Sumatra, Sulawesi and Borneo.

I don't understand why density of skyscrapers matter? Is having a taller skyscraper means having more development? Focusing on Manila versus Jakarta is a bit problematic to me, because Manila has 40% of the Phils GDP, while Jakarta has a little less than 15% of Indos GDP. Our economy is much more spread out. But we received 18 billion dollars of FDI for two years in a row, while the Phil received the lowest FDI amongst the ASEAN 6 right? Indonesia have a larger industrialized economy. For instance, our car industry produces over 1 million cars every year (next to Thailand in Southeast Asia), while the Phils is the smallest among the ASEAN 5, I think producing only 70.000 cars each year.

I will show some other infrastructural photos and perhaps also some of the skyscraper clusters being developed in Jakarta. Skyscraper development in Jakarta is not centralized into districts, so it looks a bit widespread. But later, I'm a bit busy at the moment.
