Ringil in: Jakarta & Java >> the appetizer

To summarize Jakarta in one word would be very hard but the first that comes out of my head is chaos. Home to almost 13 mio inhabitians (depending on how you count it) with an infrastructur even worse than Lappand. Cars and the mopeds rule this city. It is so polluted that even when there are no clouds you still can't see the sun and everywhere in this facinating city you'll find new skyscrapers rising to the skies. Another word for Jakarta: booming..
I find the city to be very facinating, even though I couldn't really enjoy it the way I'm used to enjoy cities, due of the lack of pavements I wasn't abe to take that many good pictures of the city but I'l hope you'll forgive me



Jakarta tall

















Bandung


the countryside


Javanese vulcanos




Thx for watching. A bigger thread with Bali pictures is on its way

WOW!!! Awesome shots, Ringil! Southeast Asia definitely has its own charms. I didn't know Indonesia had those rice terraces too. Looking forward for more pics of your adventures!

@wolken: I didn't like it at all to be honest, but I only visited it briefly because of all the outlets

Very good photos from an interesting place, Ringil!
So you could never see the blue sky in Jakarta? "blue sky filter" didn't help?
Will there be more threads about Indonesia? Are you still there?
