Embark on Your Expat Life in Indonesia

Indonesia is a vibrant, sometimes chaotic, but undeniably charming country. Spread over a thousand islands, there are literally thousands of years of history and culture to explore. Areas around the capital of <a href="/jakarta-expats">Jakarta</a> especially are on the rise economically, but all over the country big investments are being made to extract and use all the country's resources. Areas such as Papua and other oil- and gas-rich islands are seeing more job opportunities for expats, but most jobs are still in the Jakarta area. There’s a lot to see and do in Indonesia for all types of people, from ancient temples to modern, upscale clubs and restaurants in the bigger cities. This can all be overwhelming at first, so let InterNations take the heat off you and guide you through. So whether you want to know the best local bars and clubs, schools, or even find a job, InterNations is the service you need.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world.

Indonesian society can be a real culture shock to many expats, as life here can be chaotic and temperamental. But hey, at least it’s exciting!
