    Thinking of booking flights that land in Jakarta on the morning of 23rd August, realise Eid Ul Fitr is on the 19th August this year. How much do you think it will effect us not sure how long we will stay in Jakarta at least till 24th as will be jetlagged so wont feel like rushing off too quick. By then will transport not be to mental, heard from other posts its easier to travel out of Jakarta after Eid Ul Fitr is this right? Really appreciate any advice

    p.s although dates may not be ideal only ones we can do as need to be back for university and want to have at least 3 weeks

    Jakarta definitely empties out over the lebaran period and it normally happens pretty quickly. So moving on from Jakarta on the 24th shouldn't be a problem. If you're travelling by train out of Jakarta, make sure you book your ticket as soon as you arrive. If you're going to somewhere like Bogor, there is no issue as it's a local commuter train that goes there. Once in Bogor, things should be fairly straightforward, but just be prepared to alter your plans as some transport will be fully booked and you might not be able to predict it.
