A modern and bustling city, it consists of five administrative towns and the Thousand Islands Regency – an archipelago off the North coast of Jakarta. Jakarta is a huge, sprawling metropolis, home to over 10 million people with diverse ethnic group background from all over Indonesia. Located on the northwest of Java Island, the province of DKI Jakarta has rapidly expanded through the years, absorbing many villages in the process. As the Capital City, Jakarta is a melting pot of representatives from each of these ethnic groups.
