    Information for International Visitors

    Jakarta, Indonesia's massive capital, sits on the northwest coast of the island of Java. A historic mix of cultures – Javanese, Malay, Chinese, Arab, Indian and European – has influenced its architecture, language and cuisine. As a result, Jakarta has a decidedly cosmopolitan flavor and a diverse culture. Many of the immigrants are from the other parts of Java Island, bringing along a mixture of dialects of the Javanese and Sundanese languages, as well as their traditional foods and customs.

    Home to over 10 million people, Jakarta has an equatorial/tropical climate and is relatively hot and humid climate. The wet season rainfall peak is January, with an average monthly rainfall of 350 mm, with the dry season low point in August.  Jakarta is humid throughout the year with daily temperature range of 25°C to 33°C.
    During July when the show, the weather generally average high of 84°F (29°C) and a low of 74°F (23°C), it generally feels pleasantly warm, humid but cool. There might also be a small chance of rain. The exhibition halls are fully air-conditioned for your comfort.

    Visa regulations

    There are different visa regulations for foreigners, so you might check with the Indonesian Embassy in your country for immigration details.
