Again, People are pamming this, Jakarta is 6x Safer Than Los Angeles

If you stay in the boarding houses environment, some crime happens like motorcyle robbing, if you put your things awhile when you are washing handshake or going to toilet, it kinda risky too, but for Murder cases it's rare, but street robbing on Motorcycle are common since bikes are often used here, about rape it's not that much, more common rape case come from relatives, but some perverts are really making walking alone kinda unsafe..

When I was there visiting relatives, the only thing they said was an issue was theft, muggings, and home invasion. My Aunt's friend's house got broken into while we were at a family reunion.

Only uneducated illiterate that say Indonesia is unsafe. All data say that homicide rate in Indonesia is only 0.4. Rape rate only 0.4. Far safer than in Christian countries in Amerika or Europe where people are robbed and raped everywhere.

Once in Jakarta I got mugged so I put on the after burners and out ran them (helpful tip: they are very slow)

The ideas of visitors to a webpage, mmmm

I've been walking the streets of Jakarta for years, not just the shopping areas,but the side roads and gangs westerners don't even know exist, and have only ever met with one person I deemed a potential threat - that turned out to be a man with more 'interesting' Islamic views and a hatred of Americans. Once he found out I wasn't American, all was well.
Years of exploring and photographing such places with nothing more criminal than the odd small shop trying to overcharge me, and then not my enough to make me bother arguing, has left me with very firm evidence Jakarta isn't just a safe city, its people are positively friendly and welcoming.

Indonesia is not the "Mexico of ASEAN".People are over exaggerating, Other ASEAN Countries has higher crime rate than Indonesia!

For Those who are coming from Worse and High Crime Country may feels Jakarta is relatively Safe. For Those who are coming from Developed Country may feels Jakarta is very High Crime and Dangerous.

I am as the Citizen of This Country feels that this country are not quite safe, especially if you go everywhere with Public Transportation (Unless Busway), you may see people Slums People (Sometimes They Are Alone or Sometimes They are In Group) try to Rob you or Threaten you if you are Rich or You Wearing Good Dress. And if you (Especially Woman) wearing Skirts sometimes it can be possible for you to being Raped. It's more common in Indonesia especially jakarta. Indonesia is kinda like "MEXICO FROM ASEAN"

I'm as citizens have a plan to Move to Another Country that more Safe than Indonesia.
