Jakarta Top Attractions essential walking tour
Hey Adventurers! My name is Kenya! I'm originally from Indonesia, born in Kenya, and seasoned in Morocco for a whole decade. I'm fluent in English, French, and Indonesian: I'm your language ninja:). Growing up abroad gifted me a passport full of friendships and a love for the diverse beauty of countries and cultures. Now back in Indonesia, I've embraced the backpacker hostel life—meeting fascinating people from all walks of life and happily trading knowledge. Being part of these hostel encounters has sparked my desire to showcase my incredible city. Make people discovering cultures stemming from thousands of ethnic groups, savoring cuisines from various corners of Indonesia, and immersing ourselves in its one-of-a-kind traditions. However, some folks might say new travelers to "get out of Jakarta as fast as you can", but I'm here to prove them wrong! Jakarta is my playground, and I'm eager to showcase its lively, vibrant, and downright charming side. So, buckle up for a tour filled with laughter, delightful culinary surprises, and the warmest smiles Jakarta has to offer. I'm not just a guide; I'm your humorous, friendly, and ever-helpful companion. Let's make your Jakarta adventure unforgettable! 😄🌍🍜
