Advice for Someone Considering Doing Internship in Jakarta

1. Use the local transportation – Do not be afraid to try the TransJakarta buses. It is a pretty convenient way to go around Jakarta, with a pretty good route and cheap fare (only for IDR 2,000 – 3,500!)
2. Be on time – It is true that most Indonesians are not known for being on time (ever heard of jam karet?). However, most companies in Jakarta have already adapted international working ethos. Being late to anything work related is not something that can be tolerated
3. Try the Betawi Cuisine – You can find food from all around the world in Jakarta, but the authentic Betawi Cuisine is special. One of the iconic dishes is the Kerak Telor – Omelet mixed with sticky rice, grated coconut and other spices
