Love traveling and exploring! Been to many Asian countries experiencing various foods, taxi/airport nightmares, all types of clubs/bars, everything a tourist can get.
how much does it cost to travel from jakarta airport into the city in a taxi? or are there cheaper shuttle busses?
Be careful of touts. Get your taxi from the official counters upon exit of customs. Use BlueBird or SilverBird ONLY (applies to all taxis in Jakarta). It takes about IDR 150k-250k depending on destination. Do not take the bus! about 9 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.
Defo go to Bandung for day trips. Do go really early on Sat and return late night to avoid massive traffic on both routes. Many things to do in the city where the past colonial Dutch used to call the Paris of Java. Nice colonial architecture, good weather, nice mountains (active volcanoes!), and most importantly, great food! I'd hire a personal driver to travel tho. Better to pay a little more for local knowledge and safety. about 9 years ago
