GO Jakarta!!
jakarta is far behind other southeast asian cities except hanoi. jakarta is just like a small part of metro manila and bangkok how come it is comparable with them. in terms of the skyline singapore, malaysia, manila and bangkok are better than jakarta. what is with jakarta? if you go to other southeast asian cities jakarta is like a small district of cities like bangkok and metro manila. that's why many people do not include jakarta as one of the best. but i agree that jakarta can be compared to small parts or districts of mega cities like bangkok and metro manila.

By the way, Ayala planned to serve the "masa" market when they conceptualized this mall. That could also be one reason why it's right beside C5 para mas accessible sa mga taga outside FBGC.

THE BIG DURIAN

LOOKING GOOD DKI JAKARTA, LOOKING GOOOOD!

Jaya Raya!

JP

the BIG DURIAN (DKI JAKARTA) can easily compare with
the PEARL OF THE ORIENT SEAS (MANILA),
the CITY OF ANGELS (BANGKOK),
the LION CITY (SINGAPORE),
KL, CITY OF TOWERS(KUALA LUMPUR), &
the DRAGON'S BELLY (HANOI).

Look at the bold one, Jakarta is even bigger than Manila in term of size, no matter it is as a single city or Metro Manila..

i didn't get what did he talk about...? Jakarta is a metropolitan city with 661 sq. km. in width, and a population of 12 million people only in the Jakarta area... include the whole greater Jakarta area (Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi) it would be more than 16 million people (the largest city in Southeast Asia)

of course in terms of density Jakarta is behind Bangkok, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore... i agree... but in terms of highrise designs Jakarta would be the best in SEA IMO (no disrespect intended)... so that for me adds another point for consideration of Jakarta... if you don't agree than that's okay, we are entitled to our opinions anyway...

but of course for best skyline in Asia i'd choose Hong Kong...

There's a debate between the size of Jakarta and Manila. Some urban sources say Manila is larger than Jakarta or vice versa. When counting metro areas, its usually the Metro Manila area and not Mega Manila which includes the numerous suburbs and urban areas of its neighbouring provinces.

If counted, Mega Manila would be more than 24 million, larger than say Jabodetabek.

Jakarta is a large city indeed. But it doesn't feel like a large city at all. Its more kinda like Los Angeles where you have high-rises in the urban centre but the rest is mostly low-rise.

Metro Manila alone has around 12 million same as Jakarta.

Anyway, Miami has a similar cityscape as Singapore. Both have a dense downtown core. Both downtown skylines are beside container ports. Both have a resort / beach area say Miami Beach and Sentosa.

Jabodetabek or Greater Jakarta (Metropolitan Jakarta) has about 24 million people, around the same with Mega Manila.

Jakarta's urban centers are spread out all over the city (and separated quite far one to another), there are many CBDs in Jakarta which are located not in one area only. Many people only consider Sudirman CBD (SCBD) as the urban center, but there are still others CBD such as Mega Kuningan (South Jakarta), Kelapa Gading (North Jakarta), Pluit (North Jakarta), Simatupang (South Jakarta), and the newest one in Kembangan (West Jakarta).

I think because of that condition, Jakarta's skyline doesn't look like Manila or any other cities which has concentrated and densed highrises.
