Jakarta – A Brief Visit

It’s a massive city, and so much time is spent on the road (there is effectively no public transport system, only taxis), and it doesn’t have the same kind of historical sights as Bangkok. If you can’t tell, I wasn’t a huge fan.

Anyway, I took a few pictures along the way — let me know what you think in the comments!
