Today Jakarta has a population of about 10 million people, making it the most populous city in Southeast Asia. Jakarta's metropolitan area, known as Greater Jakarta or Jabodetabek (short for Jakarta + Bogor + Depok + Tangerang + Bekasi cities) is one of the largest urban agglomerations on the planet, with a population of 28 million people.
Official language is Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia). But Greater Jakarta is a melting pot, an immigration magnet and home to people from all over Indonesia and Southeast Asia, with significant numbers of Sundanese, Javanese, Betawi as well as Bataks.
When in Jakarta you might want to visit Istiqlal Mosque (largest mosque in Southeast Asia); National Museum of Indonesia (arts and cultures of Indonesia); Merdeka Square (main sqare in Central Jakarta); Wayang Museum (Javanese wayang puppetry); Jakarta Textile Museum (state of the art Indonesian textiles); Tanah Abang (textile wholesale market); Ancol Bay City (a tourist destination located along Jakarta's waterfront); Plaza Indonesia (shopping).
Just zoom in (+) to see Monumen Nasional, the National Monument tower, a 137 m (450 ft) tall tower on Lapangan Merdeka (Freedom Square) in Central Jakarta. Arround Merdeka is the city's special capital region, with its government and administrative buildings. Just north of Merdeka square is Jakarta Presidential Palace Complex and Istana Negara, the State Palace.
