is that… the opening hour for shops is rather short.
I don’t just say this for post offices, but for clothing and department stores as well, which is weird, because a lot of those stores open in weekday when people are still working (to be fair, some open on Saturday). And that also includes tourist attractions as well. As a person who’s so determined to go at 6 to visit establishments that open at 7.30, this saddens me, ahahah, because then the places to visit after 6 pm are rather limited (maybe for me only. Or maybe it’s just my scope of knowledge).
Side-by-side comparison with Indonesian hours (by the way, it is reaally easy to find opening hours for British stores (looking at Indonesian ones)). Left: Britain, Right: Indonesian
Side note: Senin: Monday, Selasa: Tuesday, Rabu: Wednesday, Kamis: Thursday, Jumat: Friday, Sabtu: Saturday, Minggu: Sunday
I have heard once, my friend from Australia, complaining that sending domestic packages there is more expensive than getting something sent from abroad. I guess some countries have them more expensive than the others.
Anyway, I did send quite a lot of postages back then, and finding this chart pretty useful. It’s a chart of Indonesia’s Universal Postal Service Rates (the most friendliest set, price-wise. Non-EMS, untracked, haha). It is the chart in IDR (Indonesian Rupiah). Right now (when I’m writing this, ofc) 1 USD is about Rp 13.000,00. Usually I just round it up to 15000 or down to 10000 to make calculation easier in my head.
