Indonesia's capital is one of the biggest cities on earth. It ranks tenth on the list in terms of size, making it also the biggest in South-East Asia. If you factor in the Jabodetabek, the wider urban area, it's the second largest such area in the world. Although it is not traditionally know for its tourism, much local planning has been put into to effect to cater for the increasing number of leisure visitors, many of whom come to peruse the beautiful colonial architecture which is found mainly in Old Town.
Like the Central district, South Jakarta, known as the Golden Triangle District, is another vital destination for those in town on business. This is considered the beating heart of the contemporary city and the main center of business.
Food in the city is something quite special. Aside from the national love affair with food, this is a city known for its gourmet eateries. The colonial heritage remains in many of the establishments and their eateries, so don't be surprised to find fine French food created by a master chef with many awards and accolades to his name. But it's not only the Europeans and the West which are represented, there is a wonderful choice of Chinese and Japanese food and you'll find the other cuisines of Asia at their most authentic.
There are good hotels all over the city, and if you want a stay which veers away from the shining bastions of modern hospitality, then you would do well to book into one with a boutique ethos. These vary considerably, but you'll find at least one with a European sensibility that reflects the colonial period and offers furnishings and style to match. Of course, there is considerable charm to be had while ensconced in a timeless heritage hotel, but that doesn't mean you'll have to sacrifice any of the mod-cons which have become de rigueur for all 21st century travelers.
