jakarta always fascinates me

  11 votes
am new to this...dont know where to find my last travelogue!!....am still getting used to this site...and most of the time...dont know what to report where....anyways...i guess will make this the site where i put in my travel details...


i thought i would be able to continue on my travelogue which i uploaded last time....but cant trace it here...anyways...con-tinuing on my travel...which is actually a business trip...it was from Paris to bangalore to Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta...and am now in Singapore. I travel this sector quite often...and a city which continues to fascinate me is jakarta & indonesia.....a mix of extremes.... islamic fundamentalism & western culture. Its seems to be a city at cross roads & not sure which way would lead them out of the mess they are in now. People fondly remember the highs of the early 90s....when it was the asian tiger...something like what India is today.

Favourite spots:
the shopping malls with excellent bargains....batik is especiaaly nice

What's really great:
the food...love the local indonesian spicy food...nasi padang?...is it?

Accommodations:
shangri la ...ritz carlton

Restaurants:
try the local indonesian cuisine
