In collaboration with #ExperienceWhatsNext, we are proud to present The Next Cities Unveiled, an online guide that features the lifestyle scene from seven selected cities in Indonesia.

What should you do if you’re planning to explore the nature in Balikpapan? Where should you go in Jakarta if you’re into obscure indie films? Together with #ExperienceWhatsNext, we are excited to be launching The Next Cities Unveiled, an online platform that serves as a concise guide to the lifestyle scene from seven selected cities in Indonesia: Jakarta, Bandung, Medan, Palembang, Balikpapan, Pekanbaru and Makassar.

Featured exclusively on micro-site, it is an ode to the culturally-diverse country of Indonesia that aims to bring to light the new wave of exciting establishments that are changing the faces of the cities.
