Jakarta backpacking


Backpacking in Jakarta, beware!

But to most backpackers Jakarta is not bad, it is okay or even fantastic.To explore Jakarta in the heat of the sun might not like sunbathing in Bali. All you can get is something like polluted streets and noisy traffic. But still some like this hustle and bustle. As the city doesn't stand alone with its modernity, some kampongs could be something interesting to take pictures of or just to interact with the people. Friendly, bit inquistive, but they are no more naive as years before, thanks to such technology like the Internet and mobile phones

You might need to have one if you plan to live longer in Jakarta for your social interaction with the local and hang your backpack for a while.

It's not that you are a show-off expatriate that an evil taxi driver might rob you, a few cases befalling the local are not good news to tell here.
