Flights to Jakarta, Indonesia
Jakarta is served by 2 air facilities, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in the west and Halim Perdanakusuma Airport in the east. However, Halim Perdanakusuma Airport only handles domestic flights (as of December 2016). Soekarno-Hatta is Indonesia’s biggest and busiest airport, and also the main international gateway into the country.
Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is situated about 30 kilometres west of Jakarta. A taxi ride from the airport to the city centre would cost about IDR 150,000 (SGD 16.15) and take about 40 minutes in good traffic. However, do be prepared that the same ride may extend for hours in the event of a traffic congestion.

Best Time to Visit Jakarta
Jakarta enjoys a hot and humid tropical climate all year round, but heavy rains are especially prominent from October to April. As such, those planning an outdoorsy holiday should schedule their trip for the dry season from May to September instead. The average temperature in Jakarta is about 30°C, so warm clothing is unnecessary. Bringing an umbrella along with you even in the dry season, however, may be prudent.
Things to do in Jakarta
Besides year-long tropical weather and gorgeous beaches, Southeast Asia is also known for its assortment of excitingly chaotic capital cities - a rule to which Jakarta is no exception. Exuding noise, colour and life around every corner, this city of 10 million promises to sweep you up in a whirlwind of lively street bazaars, lip-smacking local foods, and an exciting yet affordable nightlife scene.
Be sure to schedule a visit to some of Jakarta’s iconic national monuments in your holiday itinerary, like the historic Merdeka Square, ancient Istiqlal Mosque and the phallic-shaped column of Monas. Shopaholics would also be pleased to note that Jakarta is home to numerous shopping malls along with plenty of street bazaars and markets, so everything from high-end luxury goods to budget steals can be acquired in the city. Lastly, do make time for a cheap yet immensely satisfying Indonesian massage before heading home.
