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.
I know to find the right place for living in Jakarta is not easy, the traffic, safety area, and community as expatriates is the biggest things for you to decided, and South Jakarta great choice of neighborhood!

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
