Jakarta is a city in Indonesia that you really need to visit because this city is very miteropolitan with Asian culinary snacks that you really like.

Setting aside traffic, there is much more to Jakarta than meets the eye. It is a dynamic city and needs getting used too. I love the people. I only stayed for a short while but I want to stay longer next time.
