Jakarta; the city of a thousand flavours
Jakarta is a city that is filled with surprises that begin at the beautifully aromatic streets of Chinatown and continue as you explore more and more. Merdeka Square pays tribute to the modern Indonesia that is developing every second. The stark contrast of having mega development projects right beside humble homesteads is one of the marvels of this singular city. The many cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs all are evidence of the vast evolving culture of the city. But what stands out the most here are the flavours; layers upon layers of them all done beautifully. Each better than the last. The city may not have the best views but it certainly has the spirit and the bravado.
What is the best time to visit Jakarta?
November, March and April can be rainy but it is more of a random thing than a frequent one. The dry season in Jakarta is never totally dry. During August or July, there may be a few storms once in a while. May to October would be the best time to visit Jakarta as it has the lowest amount of rainfall.
Herer are the top attractions in Jakarta.
