‘How to’ Jakarta 

The complete Q&A guide on ‘how to do’ things in Jakarta

The Purpose of our ‘How to’ Articles

With a city with well over 10 million people, it’s about time that someone developed a question and answer guide for Jakarta! 

Although many people may not consider Jakarta to be a prime tourist hub, there is way more to see than most people know about. A lot of this has to do with awareness, and a lack of informative travel resources for foreign and domestic tourists. Our goal is to change this and give tourists more specific and practical information about travelling in Jakarta and Indonesia. 

With this ‘how to’ guide for Jakarta you will be able to access all kinds of informative articles about transportation, accommodation, flights, and things to do in the city. 

Each article is designed to provide a step-by-step guide on how to complete a specific activity. For example, our article on How to get from Jakarta to Bandung by Train specifically outlines where to access the train, where to buy the tickets, how long it will take and how much you can expect to pay for the trip. 

Many of the articles focus on a specific attraction, station or point of interest. Typically, we will provide a list of the 10 closest hotels to each one to make it easy for you to select convenient accommodation options. Jakarta has some serious traffic and knowing how to avoid it as much as possible should be a priority for all tourists to the city.
