The world’s largest archipelago state, Indonesia consists of nearly 13,000 islands and boasts a population of more than 180 million people. Comprised of more than 300 ethnic groups that speak 200 different languages, Indonesia shows marked diversity in its linguistic, cultural, and religious traditions, each with differences developed over centuries, and influenced by Indian, Arabic, Chinese, Malay and European sources. That’s my home!

and….

Welcome to my home town.. Jakarta!

Monas

Standing at 132 meters and topped with 35 kilograms of gold, this imposing obelisk is Jakarta’s most famous landmark. Construction started in 1961 under President Soekarno but was not completed until 1975, under President Soeharto. The monument houses a couple of museums. The Freedom Hall depicts Indonesia’s struggle for independence through a series of dioramas, whereas the Hall of Contemplation displays the original Declaration of Independence document and a recording of the speech.

Jakarta is a busy city.  Aside from the tipical metropolitan life, Jakarta offers a lot of great malls to shop, variety of quality food from western to local and exciting night life.
