Despite being Indonesia's capital, tourists often bypass Jakarta in favour of smaller islands, such as Bali. Escape Indonesia's beaten path with a trip to its vibrant, diverse, and welcoming megapolitan capital city. Prepare to be dazzled by the world-class food and coffee scene, and warmly welcomed by every local you encounter. Jakarta is incredibly diverse; you'll find people from all over Indonesia's 17,000 islands. They've come to the capital looking for a better way of life, and have brought with them different cultures, beliefs, and food. It's a city of juxtapositions: skyscrapers towering over historic colonial buildings, and parties still raving until the first call to prayer. Experience the chaotic beauty of Jakarta.
