Is Indonesia a good country to try for digital nomads?

Is Indonesia based for digital nomads and general life quality as opposed to Thailand? Where to stay? I am looking for a modern place with good infrastructure and good food. Jakarta or Bali? I don't wanna put up with Thailand's requirements. Indonesia doesn't require quarantine

          Surprised to hear that. Wouldn't having a child out of wedlock be the end of their social lives in that culture?

          Why? Because you can have alcohol?

          Try to get a drink in India.

          so which is it then, do muslims destroy freedom or do they drink booze and kick it? retard.

          Accepting a law, promoting a law, and secretly breaking it on a regular basis isn't what you'd call free in any political or cultural sense. At some point they should feel a sense of contradiction, maybe a desire to act differently or to change the law, but they don't.

    I went to Jakarta for a few days in 2018. While I normally enjoy concrete jungles, Jakarta was probably one of the most abjectly boring cities I've visited. If you ask the locals what there's to do for fun, they'll almost always stare blankly, think for a few minutes, and then begin rattling off the names of different shopping malls.

    Jakarta, in a nutshell, is an extremely boring, hot, humid, and crowded city. I say that as someone who loves places like Delhi and Mumbai and Bogota; but those cities at least have history and culture and nightlife, whereas Jakarta's comparably bland by most any measure.

    indonesia is a pretty boring country in general apart from a few resort islands. also there are too many fucking muslims everywhere
    malaysia would be a better bet. it has many of the same problems that indonesia has (e.g. pollution and traffic in cities, massive corruption) but on the whole life is a bit better there- there are still loads of muslims, but they are offset by the sizeable chinese population (and smaller hindu population)

            Muslim Malays/Indonesians, though not exactly that tolerant are by far the most moderate Muslims in the world. They are a lot more relaxed than Arabs and actually show genuine respect for their pre-Islamic past. It's completely normal for Muslims parents to give old Hindu names to their kids for example and Hindu scripture, considered as a mythology of course, is rather popular as Greek or Roman myths are in the West. f course i readily admit you won't find the kind of freedom you can have in other SEA countries.

                again so tolerant.

                For these two 72% of Indonesians think Sharia should be the law of the land.

                that's 192 240 000 people.

                That's 34 000 000 people that think death should be the punishment for leaving Islam. So moderate.

                certainly in malaysia they don't have the death penalty for apostasy, although there are a lot of people who would support it (it does exist as a statute, but is not implemented). but even so, for a malay leaving islam is a kind of "virtual death"- they are socially excluded, have their passport confiscated, are ordered to attend re-brainwashing sessions, and if all that still doesn't work they still have to have their case heard in a sharia court, and if that succeeds (many are refused) they effectively become a persona non grata. many leave the country.

              no they don't, they whitewash that period out of their history. they tolerate the orang asli tribes and their beliefs but they are always trying to convert them. try visiting the national museum in kl with a non muslim, they will tell you just how much of their history has been painted over by the muslims
              >Hindu scripture, considered as a mythology of course, is rather popular
              you might find a few malays who are curious about their hindu fellow malaysians, who are the poorest section of society and are routinely excluded from jobs and so on, but officially malays are deterred from reading about other religions in case it taints their poor muslim brains.
              of course it is permitted for muslims to proselytise to non muslims and put pressure on them to convert. the other way around is illegal. pic related, the back of a book i picked up in a buddhist temple somewhere in malaysia.
              religion and society are a curious mix in malaysia. interesting place. i spend a lot of time there.

        no it's because muslims are pieces of shit who destroy any kind of freedom wherever they go
        also there are plenty of muslims around that area (malaysia, indonesia) who drink alcohol even if they are not supposed to. drugs too, the highest number of drugs cases in malaysia is in the malay muslim population (75% of cases compared to ~60% of population)

      the worst part about muslims is the prayer call in the morning, or evening.

      it just fills the air with a sense of dread, and hopelessness.

      on another note, I found most Indonesians are quite pleasant people.

        This might be colored by my experiences residing in Japan but Indonesians come off as very docile in my experience. There's quite a few at a university near me and they aren't as boisterous as the Viets or as outgoing as the Filipinos and Thais around here.
