Hello! I’m Claire and I’m the author and POP Girl behind this Jakarta City Guide’s project.
I arrived 7 years ago, initially for an internship for a year but felt in love with Mr. N and here I am in 2018 living and loving Jakarta! When I first arrived, I turned up to this city and didn’t have a clue where to go, and spent way too much time in spa, brunch and wrong places! I’ve since been digging up local and authentic spots, finding great food, and discovering creative neighborhoods.
Many of my friends ask me tips, places and advises to move & enjoy Jakarta pushing me today to write a Good Guide to share with you all my hidden secrets of this awesome city that is Jakarta, and to help you have an amazing time here for a week or the next 5 years.

When it comes to production, printing and shipping it always can be a bit challenging to ensure timeline. I have today a good relationship with my printers who will help me create a wonderful product for you.
When it comes to postage, sometimes parcels can go awol, but I'll do the best I can to help if things go wrong.
