Safety: Violent crimes and theft are rare in Jakarta. Visitors should, however, take the same safety precautions they would when travelling to any large city. It is strongly suggested that you keep your personal belongings out of sight and walk in groups, especially at night.

Jakarta Dress Code: Jakarta is a cosmopolitan city, and the attitude towards attire is relatively relaxed. Though Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world, there are no special restrictions on dress or behavior in day-to- day life. Female visitors can be assured that they will be readily accepted and welcomed. Visitors should, however, show respect for local culture and customs in public places by avoiding excessively revealing clothing. This is especially important when visiting religious places.For most of the year, summer clothing (lightweight, cotton clothing) is suitable, although warmer garments may be required in the rainy seasons (including February) and in air-conditioned offices, hotels, and shopping malls.

What you need to know about Jakarta:

  • Heavy traffic is a common occurrence. As a result, people usually plan trips by traffic time as opposed to distance. Always allow for ample time to travel as road conditions are unpredictable. It is best to ask locals for the estimated travel time.
  • Jakarta is a great place to practice bargaining, particularly when you visit more traditional markets and shopping centers.
  • You may occasionally see beggars on the street. We do not recommend giving them money. However, should you decide to do so, we recommend that you have small change ready as taking your wallet out on the street is not advisable.

Common Expressions in Bahasa:

  • Thank you: Terima Kasih
  • Sorry: Maaf
  • Please: Tolong

The below phrases may come in handy when giving directions:

  • Turn: Belok
  • Left: Kiri
  • Right: Kanan
  • Straight: Lurus
  • Forward/ Back: Maju/Mundur
  • In: Masuk
  • Out: Keluar
Transportation & Going Around: Transportation to/from the Airport: There are taxi stands for reliable, metered taxis at the Soekarno-Hatta airport. Endeavor recommends Blue Bird taxis, which can be identified by their light blue color and the “Blue Bird Group” logo. The Blue Bird taxi stand usually has the longest queuing line. Another option is Silver Bird, Blue Bird’s upscale taxi fleet. A trip from the airport to the InterContinental Jakarta Midplaza (including toll fees) is around IDR 160,000 – 300,000 (~USD15-30), with Silver Bird at the higher end of the scale. Alternatively, The InterContinental Jakarta Midplaza offers private transfers to and from the airport. If you would like to book a car service, please contact the hotel directly.
Taxi Services: Taxis are one of the easiest and most convenient ways to get around Jakarta. The InterContinental Jakarta Midplaza has a dedicated Silver Bird taxi stand on its property. If you are out and about, we strongly caution against flagging freelance taxis in the street. Instead, we recommend calling the Blue Bird/Silver Bird Group to arrange for a driver to pick you up. Please remember to carry small change as Jakarta taxi drivers rarely give change.
Public Transportation: Public transportation in Jakarta comes mainly in the form of buses, which vary significantly in terms of reliability and safety. The most convenient and reliable are the Transjakarta buses, informally called “busway.” Transjakarta currently operates eight corridors (more details on connecting several points across Jakarta with dedicated bus stops. These buses cost 3500 Rp ($0.29) and are air-conditioned.
