Transportation

Road
The 500-km highway network surrounds mainly Java. The roads and highways are jammed but they are in good condition. Fuel supply is quite satisfactory despite a limited number of gas stations. In the event of an accident with corporal damage, the police must be called: indeed the local population is likely to become rather aggressive towards the person who is supposed to be responsible for the accident. A car insurance is not compulsory, but it is better to subscribe an insurance policy covering your liability as much as someone else's.



Rail
The density of the rail network is low. It is indeed limited to an East-West connection on Java island and to the crossing of some regions of Sumatra. Some lines (Jakarta-Bandung or Jakarta-Yogyakarta) have a certain tourist charm. However, comfort and speed are not the main assets.


 


Internet

The Internet suffix is: .id
