Living costs are relatively low there, I think you could get buy quite comfortably, but it also depends on what kind of lifestyle you're used to. As you may know, most people there earn about a tenth of that. 

But I am fairly sure that this will be an adequate salary if you're intention isn't to save huge amounts of money.

To get a better idea of numbers, have a look at our Cost of Living in Indonesia page.

Good luck!

With 28 Million Rupiah a month it will be enough for your cost living in Jakarta... My suggestion is better you buy 2nd motorcycle here for efficient money& time.

Hi, 28 millions per month is enough depends on your lifestyle. is it include the accommodation? or you need to pay your own accommodation?
