      Public Swimming Pool in South Jakarta

      by AntoniaF Online Now Apr 14, 2014 at 12:23 AM

      I think I'm getting desperate in finding a swimming pool that suits my need near my place in Cipete

      - the one in arcadia is always crowded on weekends and quite spooky on weekday nights (and the bathrooms are rundown)
      - the one in talavera used dark natural stone tiling but only provide 1 underwater lamp so it's almost like swimming blind
      - the one in oktroi is quite ok but finding a parking space is stressing me out
      - the one in citos is also parking-space challenged
      (okay...I know I'm starting to sound like Ms.Nitpicky hahaha)

      Any other place you can recommend?
      I usually swim after office hours ( so after 6pm ) on weekdays
      Nothing fancy, just need decent changing rooms and easy parking.

      Kopaja No. 616, useful for tourists?

      by matjung Online Now Jan 5, 2014 at 12:02 PM

      Hello dear people from Jakarta,
      I am going to arrive on a Sunday in Jakarta.
      After placing my luggage in the hotel, I thought about going to the Betawi Cultural Village to watch some local dancing.

      I already learned that bus Kopaja No 616 is going from Pasar Minggu Terminal to there.
      Is it a wise idea, that I take this bus?
      Will the driver understand some English?

      how long does it take from the airport to the city?

      by mattiagar Online Now Sep 16, 2013 at 6:20 AM

      So...I'm landing in Jakarta the day after tomorrow at around 8 pm, and I booked a hotel in north jakarta (close to jakarta utara, the hotel it's the Best Western Mangga Dua). I'm leaving the day after at 6 pm (intl. flight so have to be at the airport at 4,30 pm).
      Some people told me that it can take up to 3,4 hours from the airport to north jakarta, 'cause of the crazy heavy traffic.
      Is that true? I know it has heavy traffic but 3 or 4 hours seems like an exageration.

      Thanks!

I am abroad and will not be back in Indonesia any time soon. But I don't want my number to be used by the guy who took my mobile. The number is registered in my name with my passport number.

      We are a retired couple and plan to visit Jakarta for 3 days as part of a 2 week stay in Java in July, 2013. I understand this is within the Ramada month. We will be flying in and out of Jakarta. Is staying at the Akmani Hotel in Tanah Abang going to be a problem in terms of touring, dining out and shopping during that time? We will be booking bus day tours and will also want to do some shopping for sports shoes. We also want to walk to restaurants. We will also be going by train to Bandung. Is there any advantage in terms of accessiblity and security, if we book at the Novotel in Mangga Dua or Alila Hotel?

      Hi. I'll be in Jakarta on 10-12 May. This trip is mainly for the Aerosmith concert on the evening of 11th. So apart from that, I really have no idea what I should see or do in Jakarta.

      My questions:
      - I'll stay at the Novotel Mangga Dua Hotel. I heard they're next to a shopping mall there, right? What kind of things would you buy from Jakarta?
      - From Novotel to the Jakarta International Expo, I'm certain that I'll have to get there by taxi. But can anyone guess how long it's gonna take? So I can plan my schedule wisely.
      - Any other ideas will be much welcome. I will spend some time by the pool in the hotel. But that shouldn't be all for a city and country I never visit before. So please give me some ideas.

      Thank you from Thailand.

      Traveling To Maldives & Seychelles From Jakarta

      by MastutNidhofQolbi Online Now Mar 22, 2013 at 8:10 AM

      Dear Travelers
      I will be getting married at the middle of December 2014 and I have already set a plan to travel to Maldives & Seychelles with my spouse for the honeymoon at the end of December 2014 for approximately 6 (six) days. I do fully understand that it is still far away to reach that date. However, I prefer to prepare that upcoming journey as early as possible in order to get the trip goes well as per the planning without any trouble. Thus, on this occasion I have some questions in regard of that travel plan:

      1. I will do take-off from Jakarta. So, what is the finest itinerary for that upcoming trip (A: Jakarta-Seychelles-Maldives-Jakarta or B: Jakarta-Maldives-Seychelles-Jakarta) as we have to compromise with the availability of the flight schedule?.
      2. Is there the direct flight from and to Jakarta for 2 (two) itinerary options as above (A & B)?. If unavailable (if transit is needed), what is the plane with its shortest flight hours for those options as above?.
      3. What is the best Live Cooking Restaurant in Maldives and or Seychelles which serves the Mediterranean menus?.
      4. What is the special and or necessary thing that I need to prepare for those destinations (Maldives & Seychelles) as I travel on that period (December)?.

      Wishing I can get the answer from this forum and I really appreciate for the response.
      Once again, thank you in advance for the sharing.

      With My Best Regards,
      Mastut Nidhof Qolbi
