Jakarta is officially known as the Special Capital Region of Jakarta (Indonesian: Daerah Khusus Ibu Kota Jakarta). It is the capital and largest city of Indonesia, (though Jakarta is also a province) and one of the most populous urban agglomerations in the world. Located on the northwest coast of Java, Jakarta is the country’s economic, cultural and political centre, and with a population of 9,761,407 it is the most populous city in Indonesia and in Southeast Asia. The official metropolitan area, known as Jabodetabek (a name formed by combining the initial syllables of Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi), is the second largest in the world, yet the metropolis’s suburbs still continue beyond it.
