Drink[edit]

Jl. Palatehan 1 (just to the left of Blok M busway terminal and the bus station) is regarded as Jakarta's Thai-style "entertainment district", with many bars and many girls inside looking for single men. While much more quiet than in Pattaya or Nana Plaza/Soi Cowboy in Bangkok, the atmosphere in these bars (not spoiled by money-splashing tourists and more popular among local expats) is more friendly, with most girls not pressing you much about buying them drinks or taking them home. So, the place is perfectly OK to visit if your target is just to drink some beer, watch the action around (and often live music on the stage too) and talk with girls.

Besides that, other places to drink are usually bars associated with the restaurants (not the cheapest ones, however), several entertainment/shopping areas (such as Plaza Senayan or Kemang Raya), and bars/clubs in upscale hotels.

Sleep[edit]

Budget[edit]

The backpacker center of Jakarta is Jl Jaksa, walking distance or a cheap bajaj ride) from Gambir station and Monas (the national monument). There are many cheap hostels, or losmen, and a few mid-range hotels in this street and its side-streets, as well as many places to eat and drink. The cheapest rooms will usually be in very poor condition, often hot and with mosquitos - be sure to inspect before you agree to pay. Although there are souvenir hawkers and sex workers, it's generally a very low key place (by the standards of Asian city tourist centers), and only moderately sleazy.
