Tips When Living at an Apartment in Menteng
Here are some tips you need to know when you live in a Menteng apartment
Tip: Get a Transjakarta and/or MRT card
Since you are living in the metropolitan area of Jakarta, it’s best to find good means to get around. Heck, most of the tips here will be about specifically that. Depending on which apartment you ended up renting, it might be convenient for you to purchase a busway and/or MRT card. This is all part of the government’s plan to digitize everything. Sure, you can still pay around 7,500 rupiah for busway or 25,000 rupiah for MRT in cash (you’d still have to technically buy a card for MRT though) to get by. But if you’re gonna stay there for more than a week, it’s best to make a card for either busway or MRT. Not only does it ease your transaction process, but it also saves a lot of time. No need to figure out what 5000 rupiah looks like.
Online transportation service is often the best means to get around
Some places, like Bellagio for example, do not have the best quick access to public transportation. You’d often have to walk far to get to places. If you want to go a bit farther than a stone’s throw, then getting yourself familiarized with online transportation services (e.g: Gojek and Grab) is a must. Alternatively, some well-known taxi brands like Blue Bird group also offer online order services for your convenience.
But the area is relatively walkalbe!
If you decided to live in areas like Kuningan or Senopati for example, you can easily go to various places and locations to spend your time without having to call a taxi or drive a car. At least most places are around 10-20 minutes walk or even shorter if you decided to order a taxi or online transport service.
