yeah same to me ,I Support Kalimantan, the government must build a complete new capital city with supporting infrastructure such as toll roads, MRT/subway, busway, airports etc. and build a buildings in one area. I think the new capital city will be the main attraction

Kudos to Jakarta! I saw lots of iconic buildings. Manila has to step up.

Singapore doesnt have so many iconic buildings but it is a vibrant and liveable city. Iconic buildings are good but it doesnt really necessarily define how progressive or liveable a place is. Jakartas iconic building are still undeconstruction. It's nice to see how their skyline is shaping up. Though Id say Manila is doing a better job balancing out the construction by not merely focusing the iconic and tallest but also building the low, mid, highrise and skyscrapers altogether. More cohesive, more inclusive. Better to follow a SG devt for me than Dubai like devt.

I prefer the capital city to move to West Java only because the population of Java is already solid 56% compared to Kalimantan so I support Kalimantan❤��the news of Jokowi is more interested to central and east Kalimantan in central Kalimantan there is an area of 'Gunung Mas' which is ideal and most ready to become a capital city because the big area is vast but the minus is is development starts from the beginning again and Jokowi also likes East Kalimantan because complete infrastructure from international airports, seaports, to toll roads but the minus is flood and the water is rather salty
And Jakarta is very suitable to be a city of business, economy and trade

And Borobudor is in Jakarta? Look who's talking?

Manila has Rizal Park statue, Manila City Hall, Malacanan Palace, Manila Coconut Palace among others that are worthy to be called iconic. Even the museums here can qualify the category you are trying to point on your post.

Manila CBDs though they maybe organized into one cohesive mass like American cities are designed, they are spread all throughout the metro since there are multiple CBDs. Compare that to a linear devt in Jakarta where devt is focused in just one or two avenues which do you think is more balanced?

This one alone can qualify being "iconic" depending on how you define that word...

I don't know why you get so butthurt when someone says he loves Jakarta more. Just chill. People are free to have their own opinion.

Anyway, here are some vids of how it feels to walk around some areas of the city (not necessarily inside CBDs).
