    Next day went to Plaza Indonesia west mall to change some more money and get a local SIM. I bought local SIM for 180 K. It lasted thru out my trip. Both cash exchange and Telecom place is on the 3rd floor.

    I downloaded Blue Bird app and it worked very well. I used the Blue Bird taxi for most of my travels. One time when I was back from Classic I hail a taxi which was from some other company he did not want to turn on the meter and ask me for 100 K. I told him 50 K. In the end I paid him 60 K. It seems to me Blue Bird taxi is less hassle.

    I actually rode the MRT from Satiabudi astra to Blok M during the day time it took about 15 minutes. So for day time shopping if you want to go to Blok M this may be a good option.
    If the line at immigration is very long, go plunk down US $36 for a VOA and cut the line.

    Eid Al adha

    I was planning to visit Jakarta for few days starting 10th August. Its seems that CJs is definately closed on 10th and 11th, so will BATS be I guess. I wanted to know from BM's who have been staying there whether the city is in total shutdown for these 2 days or are some of the brothels / clubs open.

    TIA.

    Earlier this year I had issues with the airline not letting me board my flight to Indonesia without proof of onward travel. $25 and a ferry ticket from Batam to Singapore bought online at the airline check in counter and I was good to go.

    I just go through the normal line and get the one month stamp for free. They ask me almost every time "how long will you stay", but they rarely ask to see my return ticket anymore. There was a guy about 5 entries ago who did ask to see my return ticket, so it does still happen on occasion.
    Likewise. 8 out of 10 times I have not been asked for a return ticket, although they almost always ask how long I will stay.

    Nonetheless, I always have a return ticket since my travels are finite and I have another life to get back to. At least for now.

    Just the standard one month free visa I don't think I have been asked regularly how long I stay. I will take note in September.

    I've never been asked for a return ticket but I have been asked why I have a mix of Kitas work permit, business and tourist visas in my passport and to prove the intent of my current visit.

    It's a rarity but it can happen.

    Enjoy. G.

    To be honest, it depends on what you look like and how you present yourself at Immigration. I personally enter Jakarta on one way tickets and have never had a problem, but I have heard the travelers from the sub continent do experience difficulties with this issue.

    Terminal 3

    Basically all international airlines now go to Terminal 3. My only experience is arriving a couple of times with KLM at 18:00, and I don't use money changers when arriving, but I would expect these facilities to be available as long as flights arrive. ATM's are available from all local banks, so you can extract money with your bank card. Maybank has the highest limit, 3 million per withdrawal, no problem with 2 consecutive withdrawals.

    Regards,

    I looked back before asking.

    Is there anonymous clinics to test for STD in Jakarta? And where?

    How much would it cost? And how does it work?

    Sorry for the detail questions but I'm there for t days and want to make a full checkup.

    Many thanks in advance.
    If you google "Jakarta same day HIV check" you will get an answer. Theres plenty of places can check you.

    Places to buy an electronic junk

    Hi guys,

    I am a 70's-90's calculators collector. Sorry for that. Women are on the first place of course Anyway. Are there any places in Jakarta I can find this kind of stuff? I don't think flea markets are good for this. They sell overpriced "old" souvenirs to stupid tourists mostly. For instance, if you want to collect an old cell phones from early 2000's the good place is ITC Roxy Mas Mall. They have a lot of old sell phones in good conditions for peanuts.

    Thanks!
