Jakarta is not Islamic city.

I visited Jakarta twice when my daughter lived there. The traffic was intimidating and it wasn’t very walkable, and very hot, but the people were nice, food was delicious and my daughter made a lot of friends.

My impression on Jakarta? before I moved to Jakarta : hell big, hot and scary; too many vehicles, too many people, too wide of streets, too tall of buildings, too much pollution (air and sound). I thought, fu*k, I donít want to live or work in this kind of city!

But you know, most job opportunities are in Jakarta, so as much as I donít want to move here, I got a job here, so whether I like it or not, I have to move here.

So my impression after I moved here? The first two to three weeks: GOOOOOOOOOOOOSH ITíS TOO HOOOOOOOT!!! GOOOOOSH! THE SMEEEEEEEEEEEELLL!! GOOOOOOOOOOSH THE NOOOOOOISEEEE! GOOOOOOOOOSH THE LIVING COOOOOOOOOOOST!

After 2 months : I love the busway, I love the commuter line.

My favorite place? Anywhere that has air conditioners. Malls (though I rarely shop there), in busways, in the commuter line, at my office, indomaret and friends, and last but not least: the atm chambers.

All of the above describes my daughterís experiences currently living in Jakarta, now going on close to 5 years. She has made so many friends and doesnít plan to return to the USA anytime soon. The city still gets to her with all the traffic but comes with the territory. Bali and less known islands are nearby to take occasional retreats from hectic city life.

For the traffic, I think the worst is friday in my opinion.
If you want to take a bus or walk, pick saturday or sunday.

you've visited Jakarta there are some interesting things here, even though the bad impression is traffic
Jakarta is an interesting city ... maybe a bad initial impression in your opinion, but when you come, maybe you will stay here for a long time
