DEPOK

It’s hard to tell where South Jakarta ends and Depok begins, as the satellite city is pretty much an extension of the capital city. This is particularly true of Jalan Margonda Raya, the long stretch of road that serves as Depok’s commercial hub, where countless shops and shopping malls make it closely resemble many similar commercial areas in Jakarta. But beyond Margonda, Depok is a large suburban city that is home to 1.75 million people. It’s ease of access to Jakarta, thanks in large part due to the KRL Commuterline train, makes Depok a suitable commuter city for many people working in Jakarta. Depok is also home to the main campus of Universitas Indonesia (UI), which is among the best and most prestigious tertiary education institutions in Indonesia. In addition, Depok also boasts several other top Indonesian university, including Universitas Gunadarma and Universitas Bina Sarana Informatika.
