An Expat Talks about Moving to Jakarta, Indonesia

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Jakarta

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

Wish I had brought - my large coffee table, VCR, my dad's canned jalapeno peppers

Wish I had left - microwave (110), knick knacks, my dad's tools (accidentally packed)

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

If you are moving to a new area, especially if you are moving to a new country, you should contact a Relocations/Orientation company to help you know what to expect in the new area, and how to prepare for the move. KOLL Relocations sent me pre-move information and provided me with settling-in information, including a city tour and a complete guide book. The consultants were very helpful.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

I am in a single family dwelling with a pool. It is typical of most expat housing.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

KOLL Relocations found me a great house with many extras, and within my budget!
