It's kinda sad that Jakarta is the city where most expats live in Indonesia, beside with Bali. Indonesia has a lot more lovely city!
Who knows Madiun? Probolinggo? Lamongan? Those cities are so clean and tidy.
Yet, who knows that the local purchasing power in Balikpapan and Pekanbaru is just as high as well-known cities like Milan, Italy and Shanghai, China. Even, local purchasing power in Bontang could be higher than Tokyo.

I hope Jakarta is a lot better and improve drastically! Because, Jakarta is the main face of Indonesia :)

Kumar, there is a good international school run by the Gandhi Memorial foundation. It's very good school and my kids went there. It is located in Kemayoran (north of Jakarta). If you want more prestigious international school there is Jakarta Intercultural School (JIS) located in South Jakarta. However JIS cost 4-5 x of Gandhi. My kids are now at JIS and you get what you pay for.

I think Jakarta is better than most Indian cities and more metropolitan compared to most SE Asian cities, only lacking behind Singapore.

Jakarta is far from the vault line, thus no natural disaster except the yearly flood, ever touched Jakarta. I think the last big earth quake in Jakarta happen during the eruption of Krakatoa in 1800s.

Hope this helps.
