Westhill Consulting Travel and Tours Review: What to Know Before Traveling To Jakarta
Be cautious during the flood season
Aka “Banjir” which happens during December to April, particularly in lower parts of the city, flooding is pretty rampant. This happens more especially in areas nearby rivers.
Public transit is untrustworthy and irregular
Buses and trains are not the best method to get around. Expats who live in Jakarta usually have drivers. Fortunately, taxis are common; but it could be problematic catching one during rush hour. Rush hour occurs during 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
