Celebrating DKI Jakarta | June 2023
On 22 June 2023, Jakarta will celebrate its 496th anniversary. Now that is a truly astonishing birthday, more so because the city is technically older than the country that it is a capital of!
In this month’s main feature we celebrate the past, present and future of Jakarta. The pages in this edition showcase stories on the very birth of Jakarta, the essence of Betawi culture, how the city will celebrate this 2023 and also Publisher Alistair Speirs shares some “Birthday Wishes” for the city that he has called home for many decades now.
You'll also find the upcoming events, including Museum Macan's new exhibitions, musical concerts and golf tournaments; the latest city news and updates; plus reviews of some of Jakarta's newest restaurants.
