GREATER SOUTH JAKARTA

South Jakarta is generally considered to contain Jakarta’s more affluent suburban neighborhoods and the majority of the capital’s expat residents, especially in the hip and happening area of Kemang. The Pondok Indah neighborhood is another area known for its high-income residents and palatial mansions. Other notable areas of South Jakarta include the commercial center of Blok M, which also contains the “Little Tokyo” area of Melawai, as well as Senopati, which has become one of Jakarta’s best-known neighborhoods for cool new restaurants and nightlife establishments. The other subdistricts of South Jakarta include Cilandak, Jagakarsa, Kebayoran Lama, Pancoran, Pasar Minggu, Pesanggrahan and Tebet.
