Travel Forums Asia latest problem with Jakarta area

I've written this thread with a question in mind due to the latest earthquake/possible volcano erruption in Indonisia that happened 2 weeks ago:

My friend has a ticket booked which includes Jakarta. She's supposed to be visiting her friend there for Sept 21st this year.

Whether its ignorance or denial, she won't take it upon herself to check out things out with her travel company, least of all:
a- if her friend is alive still & safe
b- what the situation is like over there for tourist/travellers
There is only so much I can do, writing here was one idea.

what are your thoughts? Are people still going? How is the economy at the moment?

thanx, Jen

I understand your worry. But, since I live in Jakarta, I can tell you that the situation here is safe for travelers. We're not affected by the earthquake and volcano erruption in Yogyakarta. The economy runs as usual. There's nothing to worry about.

I hope she'll find her friend and enjoy the trip.
