Hey Guys, I am heading to Jakarta in less than 24 hours from Singapore to stay there for a few nights before I go back to my home country.. But I haven't had a chance to plan anything at all.. Help. First off, going throuhg the posts in this forrum on Jakarta I noticed the dates of alot of the posts is quite quite old so not really sure if alot of the information is relevant.. Where is a good hotel to book that places me in a good overall location? I am thinking Sparks Hotel from looking at the posts. Would this be a good choice? Was also thinking about Novotel but I have absolutely no idea if that is a good overall location though. I have preference to visit the Disco scene (Discos attached to the big 4-5 star hotels). Will visit CJ's, Novotel, blok M.. Any other recommendations guys have here whilst there for a few days? Are there any links to any good maps (reasonably up to date) for the bar scene in Jakarta? Taxi fares. What should I be paying? I rang Sparks hotel & they advised around 150 thousand Rupiah from Jakarta airport is the top end price I should pay. Any thoughts? Is it fairly easy to get a taxi from the airport? I assume I will be inundated with many taxi services offering a very inflated price as is the case with Bangkok Airport.. & probably most important, what is the charge of the Visa on Arrival? I am coming from Singapore so can I pay it in Singaporean Dollars? I hold an Australian passport.. I know I can get a Visa on arrival at Batam but have no idea about Jakarta (I assume the same) Thanks alot in advance for ANY help guys you can give.. I will definitely provide some detailed fied reports in return for all to read..
