Hello everyone,

For those of you who are new to this country, welcome to Indonesia. For those of you have been here for awhile and begin to get frustrated, rejoice; you becoming a local... none of you are alone in this beautiful but strange and at times illogical archipelago.

However I'm glad you decided to come and stay, hopefully you can enjoy more than just the food while you are living here.

I'm an Indonesian who just arrived back from Milan. Yet my Italian is still very basic :(  Just finished my degree in Art management and looking forward for any art related activities/ job that can elevate the relation between Indonesian vs international art scene. ***

Hi! My 8 year old daughter and I are moving to Ubud in September. I need to find a place to live in the city center or close by, a coshare office space with reliable high speed wifi, and a world school community.

I am thinking of renting a scooter while living there and was wondering if it is safe to do while transporting a child, especially during the rainy season?... I hear taxis are expensive and uber's are out lawed?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Hello, my Name Is Syahrul, I'm Indonesian. Now i am in surabaya, but i have many friends especially in bali, lombok and bima. I am very happy that you can come to Indonesia. I hope to help you if there are things you need while in Indonesia. Even though my English is not very good but I will try my best for it. Greetings

HI Guys,

I am Shai. I am married to my Indonesian wife, 8 years ago. Since 2011, I flew to Jakarta from KL every month without fail. The past few months after much thoughts, circumstances regarding death in the family, I have decided to move to Indonesia to be with my wife and kids. I left my good career in Kuala Lumpur.

I have been living in Serang, Banten for the last 1 month, beginning April sorting out my KITAS, at the same time looking for work.

I am an  Architect / Design Manager / Project Manager with 18 years experience. If any of you have any leads for any suitable career opportunities, i would appreciate it very much.


Hi, Shai, and welcome to the forum.
Serang is handy for immigration and so on, but the shopping there is a little more limited.
Hope you enjoy your stay and find work shortly.

Hi, I am a Canadian and am in the midst of securing an employment in Jakarta. Barring unforeseen circumstances, I should arrive by this summer. Having left the country >22 years ago, I feel like a newbie to Jakarta when I visited it earlier this year. It's my first time going back after > 19 years. [My office will be right by the Plaza Indonesia. As I wont be driving anytime soon (have to re-adjust my driving style), I am thinking to find an apartment (at least 2 bedrooms) within walking distance to my office. For now, I am looking for a one month rental (hopefully before the end of the month, I could find a more permanent place to commit for a full year rental). Ideally, the apartment needs to be near food courts/restaurants, etc. (something like the Meditteranean apartment complex by the CP mall is great, but it is far from my office location) as I don't cook. My families will not be joining me anytime soon (at least 1 year) until I settle down. I am not concerned about finding schools, etc. Any recommendation for a decent apartment near the Plaza Indonesia area that would allow me to just walk to the office?] -- PS:  I will move the boxed section to the "housing forum". I guessed I just want to say Hi to everyone. I look forward to connecting with fellow expats, especially the Canadians to learn more about any tax planning that they did prior to moving to Indonesia.

Hi all,

I'm Esti from Jakarta and I'm new here. Nice to meet people from another country. Welcome to Jakarta to the new comers and get used to with the atmosphere.

I have good product, a solid team and market target that ready to be managed, but less financial to setup new company. If anyone here want to invest in this opportunity and start to open new company we can work together.
Thank you


Hello everyone,

I'm agung recently settle down in Bogor, Indonesia from my almost 2 decades jobs adventure in Dubai.

Hope I can see you guys soon...

Hi, Agung, and welcome to the forums

Hi Fred, thanks mate

Nice to meet you. We pop down to Bogor from time to time, usually to the excellent safari park.
The Arabic restaurants are well worth a visit as well.

Likewise mate, nice to meet u too.

Been there last week for hubbly bubbly, i like riding with my small motorbike from Bogor to Puncak Pass on weekdays (less traffic) or camp in my mpv on weekend to save money 😃 hahaha not so bad though...

We usually stay at the zoo hotel (Zoo tickets are cheaper that way) so we have easy access to everything, that including the restaurants.
We went home via Pucak pass last time in the hope of avoiding the messy toll roads around chicken peck that are such a cluck of a mess.
