Hi folks:

This is a useful website for those of us taking the plunge of moving to another country. I am preparing for my move to Jakarta, it is 6 months away still, but thought its a good idea to gather some info.

I'll be working in South Cipete (Cipete Selatan). I am starting to look for rentals. I am single and will be satisfied with a 1 or 2 bed room apartment, I am used to walkable and safe neighborhoods. I prefer to be in walking distance to restaurants, stores etc.

Can anyone comment on this neighborhood? Cipete Selatan, such as demographics? people I am likely to meet, neighbors etc, and any other recommendations regarding close by neighborhoods that meet the above criteria.

Thank you for your time.
Taza

Hi Taza I am an American that has lived in JKT for years..

1) LIVE CLOSE to where you work - 10 min taxi drive - traffic builds-up from 7AM and after 5Pm it exponentially gets worse to 7PM -

2) Kemang is nice / expat area BUT - getting in and out is brutal - small streets and the traffic crawls.. But, if you place of employment is close - then not too much a problem.

I lived in the Thamrin area near Plaza Indonesia and found it to be a good Central location but if I worked near Kemang - I would chose to live much closer because of the traffic issues.

if you have any other questions - send me pvt message

If you are working in Pondak Indab - LIVE IN THAT AREA - which is nice - because if you live outside of it and need to commute in - a lot of traffic ! and 2 lane in and out - so - when it comes to working in JKT - live as close you can to work - unless you want to add one hour commute each way - most of the time sitting in traffic. Pondok - nice area, plenty of places to go - and nice places to live good luck and.. make sure you always carry a copy of your passport on you
