Taxis in Indonesia are cheap and plentiful, and thankfully air conditioned, making them the best way to get around, especially in the cities. Make sure the driver knows where you are going before getting in, and make sure he uses the meter. If he refuses, just get another taxi, they are usually not hard to find.

About Jakarta

A nighttime landscape of Jakarta city

Jakarta is the dynamic capital city of the Republic of Indonesia, a country composed of more than 7,000 islands with a population of over 200 million.

Comprising more than 300 ethnic groups speaking 200 distinct languages and dialects, the Indonesian population exhibit incredible diversity in its linguistic, cultural and religious traditions. As the nation capital, Jakarta is truly a “meeting point” of representatives from throughout the archipelago.

Jakarta is the lively social, cultural, economic and political hub of the nation, carrying a legacy of more than 30 years of largely uninterrupted economic expansion. It is home to many of the country’s finest research institutions, educational facilities and cultural organizations, and uniquely serves both as the seat of national as well as regional government.

Strategically positioned on the west side of the island of Java, the Capital City is the principal gateway to the rest of Indonesia. From Jakarta, sophisticated land, air and sea transport is available to the rest of the country. Over the last several decades, Jakarta has proudly developed into one of Asia’s most prominent metropolitan centers. With a current population of more than 9 million inhabitants, Jakarta has undergone dramatic growth.



Located in the tropical zone, Jakarta’s climate is hot and humid. The average temperatures range from 26°Celcius at night and early morning to up to 30°Celcius at noon. April to October is usually dry season in Jakarta, while November to March is wet season. However, even during dry season, one can expect occasional rains.

Language and Ethnic Groups

Like the rest of Indonesia, the people of Jakarta speak the official language Bahasa Indonesia. However, Bahasa Indonesia in this city is heavily influenced by the dialect of Jakarta’s previously dominant ethnic group, Betawi. With rapid urbanization process in the city, the Betawi people have been pushed to Jakarta’s suburban areas. Current population of Jakarta consists of various ethnic groups from different parts of Indonesia, including Chinese, Arab and Indian descents in commercial areas.
