Many of you certainly have watched this 2009 movie: Slumdog millionaire. It is a nice optimistic story, told with lots of humour and sensitivity, but is further from real life than VT from real travel! Well, nothing to laugh or no romantics here; but also no tourist voyeurism, unsound mind, no sordid realism, just another side of life. . . . Be prepared for some views many people would find unpleasant, not necessary touristy; on the pictures here, people are far, just wanted to show some hidden side, when you walk around in North Jakarta. On the first picture, is the fish market main hall, seen from a watchtower belonging to the Maritime museum; on the other pictures are other views of the area, and the last one has been taken from a very touristy place.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
