Jakarta - Shopping & Food Paradise?

I am thinking of going to Jakarta for a short trip. Prob abt 3 - 4 days. Heard from some friends it is a shopping and eating haven. But surprisingly, from the postings I have read so far, most people feel otherwise.

I am hoping to shop for cheap clothes for myself and my baby. ANd perhaps some home decorations as well. I have heard that there are a lot of factory outlets within the city itself. Anyone who can verify on this?

Am I making the right choice to go to Jkt or shld i head down to Bangkok instead?

Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated.

hi kicking asphalt (?!),

interesting nick name that you have ;)

Well, there are some FO in Jakarta with same prices as in Bandung, but not much choice (not many FO in Jakarta if you compare it with Bandung). Bandung is paradise for shopping, be careful not to pick the fake items... :(

For food, Jakarta and Bandung are paradise... yummy!
