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.
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.
