Feature photo for Focus Issue -- New Year's Eve

Photo A and B

Many people choose to parade along the city's main streets in celebrating the New Year rather than go to a nightspot. The pictures were taken last New Year's Eve.

Hotels, restaurants, cafes and other venues usually present well- known singers and some also hire fortune tellers on New Year's Eve to entertain their guests.

Diners enjoy lunch at Pendopo Lounge, one of the restaurants at Hotel Borobudur Jakarta. Almost all the city's major restaurants offer special dining packages on New Year's Eve.
