how much does it cost to travel from jakarta airport into the city in a taxi? or are there cheaper shuttle busses?
Well, u need to aware about traffic jam in Jakarta which absolutely affected to your taxi cost. My suggestion to use blue bird taxi. To the city center in normal traffic can be around 200000 rupiah or more (around 30 USD or more. Again, its really depend on the area you want to go, and the traffic jam ;)). Yes there're shuttle bus called DAMRI to stop in certain area and sure it cheaper. All are depend to your convenience and your area destination. about 8 years ago
I am going to Jakarta in December - need recommendations where to visit within a few hours of the city with 1-2 days to work with.
Hi Ted, if you like Volcanoes, you can go to Bandung, a city which is surrounding by mountain. You can visit Kawah Putih (white crater)at southern Bandung and also the famous Tangkuban Parahu mountain, you can do a bit hiking going down to the crater. After tired of walking,you can stay and relax by enjoying the hot spring in hotel near Tangkuban Perahu. You can go to Bandung (130 km from Jakarta) by public transportation, which cost you around 70.000 IDR (10 USD) one way. Rent car in Bandung a day with driver around 350.000-500.000 IDR/day, depend on negotiation. Bandung also famous for factory outlet. about 8 years ago
