Jakarta oh Jakarta
My solo travelling continued to Jakarta Indonesia last weekend. Arrived in Soekarno-Hatta airport in the afternoon, I encountered with massive fluke of people coming into Jakarta. I was stuck at immigration for almost an hour and then took me another hour to get a cab. Rush hour in Friday evening make it worse and it took me more than an hour to get to the hotel. “Macet” of traffic jam in metropolitan Jakarta is well known to everybody who used to be here. I was staying in Mangga Besar, little that I know this is the center of red light district in Jakarta. Karaoke, pubs, night clubs, discotheques, spas, massage parlors are everywhere and girls to accompany you for a night also can easily be found around this area. This is a different light of Jakarta that I know from my last visit with my ex-wife during my business trip here 3 years ago (yeah, she insisted to come, probably she knew what Jakarta can offer to solo travelers)
This is seriously a dodgy hotel. Every day I saw many beautiful girls coming in and out of this hotel.
I rode a bajaj to Mangga Dua and I survived!
Arim Ari the magician. I learned some magic tricks from him.
The best meal I had in Jakarta. I went to this restaurant twice!
No doubt I was a happy guy after the massage session…..hahahahaha
Bye bye Jakarta… sampai ketemu lagi ya!
