"Lost and found" Jakarta Local Custom Tip by Assenczo

Jakarta Local Customs: 37 reviews and 43 photos

The general impression of Indonesia’s people is of politeness and hospitality – perfectly in union with the teachings of Islam, and probably not far away from the previous set of rules. All this said it is not difficult to notice than on this trip many things got lost – never to be found. It is true that jetlag and other travel-related fatigues contribute to loss of attention and shear forgetfulness but the coincidences were too many not to be noticed as a pattern of nothing other but a theft. So paying attention to your surroundings and company despite some very pleasant looks and reverent attitudes is of major importance in a country where there isn’t lost and found, it is just lost and forever!
