To be fair, I have only seen roughly 10% of Jakarta.
Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport’s average. There was free wifi when we got there and everything was properly labeled. The visa on arrival service was a breeze. Wikitravel said almost everyone in Jakarta speaks English but when we got there, hardly anyone speaks English. We took the Blue Bird Taxi to Ancol (pronounced as An-chol) Dreamland. On the way, the scenery reminded me of Malaysia then as we go closer to Ancol, the scenery got a bit grim. Poverty-stricken areas everywhere. It reminded me of Manila.
Ancol Dreamland was massive! It took us about half an hour to get to the stadium where Dream Theater was scheduled to play. It has restaurants in it, residential buildings, beach, paintball field, skating rinks, and a shopping mall; The only problem is, the place is not well kept.
I would still want to go back to Jakarta someday. Maybe explore the place even more.
