... opened in 1978 as the national mosque of Indonesia, a country that is home to the world's largest population of Muslims. Today it remains the biggest mosque in Southeast Asia, holding some 120,000, though certainly not the most beautiful. We also visited an ethnic museum.
In reality we thought Jakarta to be a huge, unattractive city that we would have happily skipped but it did give us an opportunity to rest up from our ...
... just to get away Wander onto the peer avoiding some very persistent nobheads trying to sell us pictures of ourselves, while they take the **** out of Leah saying "whaaaaat...???" incredilously. Your sales techniques are off, my friend, and your product is 40 years out of date Wander back off peer, still ignoring nobhead hawkers and buy a blue slush puppy. Mmmmmmmmm Indonesian non sugar regulated slushsexygoodness. We buy 2 pairs of shorts for me and 1 for leah. ...
... the side of the mountain. Next, we drove through a very strange gated community: Set into the mountainside, each neighborhood had a theme. For example, there was a Japanese neighborhood complete with houses made of sliding paper doors, there was an "Indian" (their terminology, not mine) community with totem poles at the entrance, and (our favourite) a Dr. Seuss's Whooville. Think about this for a minute: people actually live in a recreation of Whooville. This blows my ...

Right my first official entry, one to open the path to even more epic stories en legendary failures.
I started off quite ordinary I guess, saying goodbye to everyone (btw thanks everyone for being able to meet me!), pack, weigh, repack, weigh, freak out, decide to do something entirely different and making peace with the moment. This didn't last very long, they will still be there when I come back so.
Flying here was also ok, didn't ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBangka Bed And Breakfast Jakarta
OK, Jakarta is a huge, unfathomable city, difficult to negotiate with no real central focus and nightmarish traffic. We randomly picked the Bangka via Hostelbookers and turned up late in the evening after a negotiating a dystopian traffic jam from the airport. What a relief to find the B&B was more than we could have hoped for. A beautiful house in a quiet leafy suburb, close to the expat zone but a million miles from the chaos. The staff, Rico and Rini, are incredibly friendly and helpful and the owner, Mr Rama is The Man. Rooms are quiet, cool and comfortable, the place has good wifi and places to relax and the complimentary breakfast is well laid out every morning. Highlight of our four day stay was the personal guided tour by Rama. He knows and loves his city, speaks perfect English and took us around the place in an air-coned car with a good driver. We went everywhere, the best bit being the old docks where we went on board a big wooden trading schooner that was loading stuff for Sulwesi, quite the experience. We left Jakarta with a new. improved opinion of the place and at least three new friends. Hope to return one day. Top place.
