It's a safe city. I luv Indonesia very much. Have been in and out of this country for the past 40 years? Alhamdulillah!

Don't visit this country. They are the Mexico version of Asia. Chances of you being raped if you know any Indonesian (when you working) is 80%. Last time a Indonesian friend of mine being raped and killed. I moved out from Indonesia after the police warned me that I might be the next target.

In the city even during the daylight there chances of you being threaten and snatched your purses.

I will never going back to this country anymore. Murderers and Rapis haven.

Chance to get mugged at night in North, West and East Jakarta is 8 in 10.
Jakarta almost always floods when raining.

I have lived in Jakarta for four years. I am not some safety expert so I am just sharing my own experience. Like any big city, you just need to know the few places where NOT to go. Avoid train stations, some "shady" areas like Blok M at night and you will be fine day or night. I have never felt threatened or in danger for my personal safety. The majority of Indonesians are very decent, humble and polite. However, like in any country in the world you will occasionally hear about or experience sad stories like false accusations, major corruption, dishonest domestic employees, theft, scamming or people wanting to be your friend because of your money. Asking for a bribe to get something done is quite common. So problems do exist, but safety is not worse than in other "developed" countries. I am leaving because I can no longer stand the unbearable traffic, noise + air pollution.

i'm living in tanjung priok north jakarta, the real problem was traffic, and public transportation, if it solve by more mass rappit transportation, and more lightening in the street, it will be safer

I've been lived in jakarta for 22 years
However, i was attacked by someone in Pondok Indah and stole my celular phone. It happened 7 years ago.
Overall, Jakarta is safe if you're not stupid
