Indonesia's capital is home to more than 10 Million people, most of whom seem to be sitting in traffic at any given point in time. The city has long since replaced Bangkok as one of the worst places for traffic in Southeast Asia. While there are remnants of the old 17th Dutch settlement of Batavia, it's difficult to say whether or not this is worth the time and effort it takes to see it. Most tourists seem to choose to get out of Jakarta as soon as they can.
