Jakarta

Vast, overwhelming and full of juxtapositions, Indonesia’s capital is a sprawling metropolis where glamorous malls and the latest high-rises meet grid-locked streets and smoggy slums. As the center of Indonesia’s large economy, Jakarta is the headquarters of many Indonesian conglomerates, with business activity highly dependent on service, financial and manufacturing sectors. As it continues to grow rapidly, the humid tropical city faces overpopulation and many infrastructure challenges.
