Weather and when to go

It’s sunny in Jakarta nearly all year round, which makes it pleasant to be outdoors and even more pleasant to be in the air-conditioned comfort of the nearest building or shopping mall. During the wet season from October to March, it typically rains for a few hours on any given day, adding to the constant traffic chaos.
