Jakarta, the Indonesian capital is literally a sprawling metropolis located on the island of Java, a sea of skyscrapers and motorbikes, home to local markets, trendy cafes and historical sights. Jakarta is a dynamic and vibrant city that maintains the lead in top emerging startups hubs in Asia. Its chaotic charm and juxtapositions can be found on every street. Despite the maddening traffic and persistent blanket of smog, Jakarta has plenty of pleasant surprises, including a world-class food, amazing coffee scene and endless opportunities for networking.
