    It’s a great location – shame the picture doesn’t really do it justice.

    This is really just.. wrong! haha. I live in Jakarta (I’m Indonesian) and I believe this photo was taken somewhere around 1990-2000. I mean, now that building on the right is finished already (Grand Indonesia Mall) and There are so much more buildings in bunderan H.I. now. Jakarta is a very fast growing city, in 1975, Jakarta has only 3 buildings! 😀
