Jakarta

The capital of Indonesia is an exotic metropolis that is home to over 9 million people. It is the center for national politics, finance, & trade making it a truly dynamic city, and shaper of Indonesia's modern culture and history. It is dense, and in this denseness is a sort of mish-mash dichotomy of past and present, developing and developed, giving and taking. A patchwork of livelihoods and experiences, with luxury cars juxtaposed to rusting jeeps and state of the art highrises beside makeshift shacks, it is a dynamic, living breathing example of resiliency through a rich history, and forward thinking in the willingness to transition. In this bustling metropolis where contemporary and classic meet, you'll find endless markets to bargain in, an internationally distinct cuisine, a nightlife second to none, and vibrant people at every street and walkway, each with their stories to tell.

This is Jakarta BY Jakarta.
