Welcome to Jakarta, Indonesia's young, thriving and vibrant capital. From its diverse neighbourhoods to glittering malls, frenetic CBD and late-night culture, Jakarta offers something for everyone. Here you'll find some of Indonesia's top corporations, as well as a burgeoning start-up scene bursting with tech entrepreneurs. Jakarta's locals are industrious and friendly - a must in a city with a population of over 9.6 million.
In many ways serviced-apartment-style living epitomises life in Jakarta. The sprawling metropolis is more a collection of boroughs and neighbourhoods than a homogenised grid, so people tend to spend much of their time 'living local'. Jakartans are young and educated, and it shows. In recent years numerous neighbourhoods such as Kemang, Panglima Polim and Pantai Indah Kapuk have been rejuvenated as young entrepreneurial Jakartans have moved in to start up cafés, boutique shops, restaurants and galleries.
When it comes to business, Jakarta works hard and plays hard. The centre of commerce and government can be found in Jakarta's 'Golden Triangle', an area which extends through Central and South Jakarta and encapsulates most of the city's commercial offices, government buildings and tourist attractions. Kuningan and Sudirman-Thamrin are two of the busiest, stacked with skyscrapers housing the headquarters of some of Indonesia's and the world's top corporations.
Whether travelling for business or leisure, don't miss out on some of the top things to do in Jakarta.
Jakarta attracts talented culinary creators from around the world, and many of them set up shops in Central Jakarta and the Golden Triangle. Some of Jakarta's best restaurants can be found close to our serviced apartments in Menteng, Setiabudi and Sudirman. In Menteng, Spanish rooftop restaurant Por Qué No serves up authentic Spanish flavours with fantastic views of the Central Jakarta skyline. Plataran Menteng is the place to go for elevated and elegant Indonesian fine dining. In Sudirman, Amuz at SCBD delights with contemporary takes on French cuisine, led by veteran French chef Gilles Marx. In Setiabudi and less than 100 metres from your hotel, Fraser Place Setiabudi, you'll find legendary local eatery Pokenbir, which serves up quite possibly the best pork dishes in town.
Indonesia has a long and colourful history and a long association with the sea and international trade. Whether it's exploring Indonesia's ancient past, Dutch-Colonial history, or contemporary society, the best place to start is the National Museum and National Gallery of Indonesia, located conveniently close to our serviced apartments in Menteng. Sitting adjacent to Jakarta's National Monument Park, the National Museum houses over 140,000 objects and numerous permanent and temporary exhibitions covering Indonesian cultural history and the environment. On the other side of the park, the National Gallery of Indonesia houses 1,770 artworks by Indonesian and international artists, including works by famed West Javanese artist, Affandi.
Jakarta has a reputation for working hard and playing hard, well earned if the pace of the city's nightlife is any guide. Central Jakarta and surrounds thrum to the beat of late night clubs and bars almost every night of the week - there's always something on. Jakarta's rooftop bar scene is strong; some of the best can be found in Setiabudi. Hause Rooftop offers a staggeringly uninterrupted view of the city, only 11 minutes walk from our Fraser Place Setiabudi serviced apartments. The venue is elegant but relaxed and the service impeccable. To experience Jakarta's late night club scene, visit Fable in Sudirman. Turn up late because Jakarta's nightclub scene is famous for its late starts - the party doesn't really get going until after midnight.
Close to our hotel in Menteng, Jalan Surabaya is the ideal place to pick up antiques, Indonesian crafts and souvenirs for the folks at home. Here, you can find traditional Indonesian carving, batik, classic books and other collector's items along the street's permanent flea market. Some of the antiques date back to Indonesia's Dutch-colonial era so keep your eyes out for a bargain or a one of a kind accessory.
South Jakarta is where you'll find two of Jakarta's up and coming neighbourhoods, Kemang and Panglima Polim. Jakarta's young, entrepreneurial locals have in recent times rejuvenated the areas to become Jakarta's default centres of cool. Find some of the best boutique fashion in Kemang, with numerous young local labels opening up small boutique stores. In Panglima Polim, delve into the area's inexpensive eateries and coffee concept stores. Panglima Polim fairly well exudes a hipster vibe and gives a sense of where Jakarta's young and spirited are taking Indonesia's tropical metropolis.
To reach our Jakarta hotels from Soekarno–Hatta International Airport, we recommend a private hire car or making the 50-minute journey on the Jakarta Airport Train to Sudirman Baru station in the city centre and from there catching a taxi to your serviced apartments accommodation.
