Considering it's weekend day, Jakarta's traffic seems quite crowded. Cars in Indonesia are brand-new, stylish looking and driving standard is generally good.

We went to the food court in the upper level of the mall... What makes it so interesting is how most restaurants represent each region/city of Indonesia, I saw restaurants solely serving Manado food ( which we tried out for our lunch ) , Semarang food, Padang food, Yogyakarta food, etc. Food from Manado is generally very spicy by Indonesian standard, with heavy use of chillis. Indonesia is a huge country with more than 230 million people, hence each single region/province in Indonesia almost equates a country with its distinct food and culture, very different from one another


The spicy and tasty food from Manado

Thanks for the photos, but judging from them I can't really agree with you.

It definitely doesn't look clean and well-ordered. Rather it looks pretty messy with lots of uncontrolled urban growth. There doesn't seem to be any subways or other rail-based public transportion, but instead all transport appears to depend on cars...hardly modern and future oriented. And from the looks of the photos there doesn't even seem to be a proper sidewalk along most of those roads.

Not so clean and well-ordered from those pics.....May be so up to your standards as self-proclaimed in your title thread, but doesn't seem so to me...

Jakarta doesn't have a rapid transit system, yet. On the other hand, they have a extensive bus rapid transit system, The Transjakarta. On the other hand, commuter rail in Jakarta is fair.

It is a car oriented city, not much pedestrian activity. But the city is big and spread out so people depend or cars or motorcycles just like in Los Angeles or Houston. Jakarta's urban planning was built for cars, hardly any pavements for pedestrians and if there are, there is hardly any pedestrian activity.

Honestly from look at the pics Jakarta is mixed. You have your clean and dirty areas just like any major city.
