Where to Stay in Jakarta - Best Areas for Tourists

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
If you visit Jakarta as a tourist, you are probably wondering about the best areas to stay in the city . Due to the horrible traffic and the lack of public transportation, I advise you to choose your location carefully. 1 kilometer in Jakarta is like 10 kilometer in normal cities. Just going to the opposite side of a street by car can sometimes take up to 30 minutes! If you don't have time to read my entire review , the following paragraph is a short summary: The best place to stay in Jakarta, either you are a tourist or a businessman, is around Plaza Indonesia or Grand Indonesia, for instance:  Kempinski ,  Grand Hyatt ,  Pullman ,  Mandarin Oriental . It is an expensive area though so if you are on a budget, you can stay near Sarinah Mall instead. You'll find backpacker hostels ( Jalan Jaksa ), 2-star hotels ( Favehotel ), 3-star hotels ( Holiday Inn  or  Ibis Tamarin ) and 4-star hotels ( Morrissey , Four Points by Sheraton , AONE or  Akmani ).

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Tinder has become the easiest and fastest way to meet girls online, and yet I know a lot of single guys who suck at it. Even in Asia, they can't get a decent match, and if they do, they fail to transform it into a date or a hook-up.  Does it sound familiar to you? Are you struggling to meet attractive girls on Tinder because they rarely match with you or reply to your messages? If yes, this article will help you identify the reasons you are failing and, more importantly, what you can do about it. Here is my list of the 10 reasons you may be unsuccessful on Tinder :

Baku Nightlife: 20 Best Bars and Nightclubs (2017) - Azerbaijan

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
I spent 2 days in Baku during the Formula 1 Grand Prix in June 2017. I partied on two evenings and, even though I probably only scratched the surface of the nightlife, I'm writing this short guide about the best bars and nightclubs I have been to. Baku Nightlife From what I've seen, Baku nightlife is not very interesting for a single guy. The main problem is that middle-class Azeri women do not frequent nightclubs or bars. They often live in conservative families that do not allow them to party or even to hang out with friends late at night.

20 Hottest Models and Girls from Kazakhstan (2017)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
I spent two weeks in Kazakhstan to write my Almaty Nightlife Guide . That gave me plenty of time to admire the beauty and diversity of Kazakh girls. I didn't expect that I would see so many gorgeous women in the country and it certainly made my stay much more enjoyable. Due to a lack of foreigners, it is fairly easy to meet them through dating apps like Tinder, Badoo or Mamba. On average, I would get around 30 matches per day, making Kazakhstan one of the easiest countries in the world to meet girls . In a city like Almaty, around 50% of the girls are Kazakh (Asian or Chinese features), 30% are Russian (Caucasian features) and 20% are mixed. To give you an overview of what these women look like, I've searched for the 20 hottest models and girls from Kazakhstan. If I forgot someone who deserves to be here, please just add the name in the comment section below.

Online Dating Sites & Apps In Indonesia (2017)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
I once wrote a review about dating Indonesian girls and where to meet them. You can still read it here:  Where to meet Indonesian girls ? Most of the information on the review is still valid, but it certainly needs an update on the world of online dating through websites or social apps such as Badoo, Indonesian Cupid, Tinder, WeChat, Skout, Beetalk, etc. New Article: 10 Best Countries in Asia to Meet Girls and 15 Best Dating Apps and Websites in Asia . If you are looking for a great girl in Jakarta, online dating is by far your best chance. 90% of the girls there are looking for a stable relationship. Another 9% is looking for money. And maybe less than 1 percent is looking for a one night stand (not the hottest girls usually). The fact that they are looking for a stable relationship does not mean they want to get married straight away. It means they want to feel a long-term relationship is possible. For this reason, it may be more difficult for you to find a date if you ar

Almaty Nightlife: Best Bars and Nightclubs (2017) - Kazakhstan

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
I spent around 10 days in Almaty, the largest city in Kazakhstan. I was told it had the best nightlife in Central Asia, and it is probably true. While it is sometimes still rough around the edges, I can say that it is one of the most underrated party destinations I've ever been to. The city has at least 10 decent nightclubs and 30 bars worth visiting. It is generally cheap: Drinks costs between 2$ and 5$, even in nicer venues, with an entrance fee always below 10$. Foreigners are rare and they are treated like royalty. A few times, I was able to avoid queuing after the bouncers heard me speaking in English.
