I will be in Jakarta starting Saturday Nov. 9th at 1pm, departing to Sorong late sunday night. So I have around 36 hours in Jakarta. So I will have most of Sunday to look around.
I always like to hire a car to take a look around but I have read that I might only see how bad the traffic is there?? Does the traffic get better or worse on the weekends? I have been in Bali and thought that was some crazy traffic that was amusing, boy there are a lot of scotters lol.
My plan is stay close to the airport but can change that if going down town would be worth the trouble?
Should I stay by the airport or go into town?
Is hiring a car worth the trouble for Sunday, if so what area should I check out?
I am 46 year old male traveling with my father.
Any help would be appreciated.
