Jakarta : Michelin's recommendations In Jakarta, 21C Asia coexists with extreme poverty; shopping centres selling luxury brands juxtapose the kampung, labyrinthine working-class districts. In 50 years, Indonesia's capital has become a huge city of more than 10 million inhabitants. It is noisy, polluted and growing relentlessly, exposing as it does the most violent contrasts, which accounts for the fascination it excites. From the fish market to the Chinese district, from the Hard Rock Café to the futuristic skyscrapers, allow the city to overwhelm you… and don't pass up the chance to sample the wild nightlife.
