Love it or hate it, Jakarta makes an impression. But those who take the time to look beyond the noise and chaos might just discover an exciting metropolis with very unique charms. From the quaint Surabaya Street antique market to the swanky shopping malls, from the street-side warung (food stalls) to world-class restaurants, the contrast of traditional and modern are nothing short of fascinating.
Located on the northern coast of Java – the largest of over 17,000 islands that constitute Indonesia – Jakarta is also a melting pot of the country’s numerous ethnic groups. And despite the myriad cultures that make up the city, Jakartans are some of the friendliest and most hospitable people you are ever likely to meet.
With 13 destinations to choose from, there is always a side of Indonesia you have never seen. Find out where Singapore Airlines and SilkAir can bring you.
