(Indonesian pronunciation:
[ˈbəkasi], Sundanese:

) is a landlocked city in West Java, Indonesia, located on the eastern border of Jakarta. It serves as a commuter city within the Jakarta metropolitan area. According to the 2022 Census by Statistics Indonesia (BPS), Bekasi takat 2,543,676 inhabitants.[2]
The official estimate for mid 2022 was 2,564,940.[3]
It lies within the largest metropolitan area in Indonesia (Jabodetabek). The city is bordered by Bekasi Regency to the north and the east, Bogor Regency and Depok to the south, and East Jakarta to the west.

Bekasi is one of the oldest cities in Indonesia, and has a history of being the capital city of the Kingdom of Tarumanagara. At that time, the name of Bekasi was
Dayeuh Sundasembawa
Jayagiri. The earliest evidence of its existence dates from the 5th century according to the Tugu inscription, which describes the name of two rivers that run through the city, i.e. Candrabhaga and Gomati and one of those rivers, i.e.
is the origin of the name Bekasi where the name Candrabhaga evolved into Bhagasasi due to the Sanskrit word candra which means moon evolved into Old Sundanese word ‘sasi’ which also means moon and then the name Bhagasasi was misspelled as Bhagasi and then Dutch colonial government also misspelled the name Bhagasi as Bacassie and finally it became Bekasi.[4]
During the Dutch East Indies period, Bekasi was a part of Batavia residency. As a dormitory city, many middle class satellite areas have been developed in Bekasi,[5]
complete with their own shopping malls, schools, hospitals, club houses, water park, and shuttle bus services to central Jakarta. The large number of multinational companies has apparently attracted many expatriates (mainly Japanese and Korean) to settle in Bekasi.[6]



Bekasi has already grown to become one of the centre of growth in Jabodetabek. The city accounts for 2.11% of total national GDP.[7]
Recently, many foreigners (mostly Korean, Japanese, and Chinese) have set up their business to take advantage of its dynamism and boost its economy. Bekasi’s economy was mainly based on service and manufacturing.



Bekasi is one of the most promising property markets in Jabodetabek besides South Tangerang, and several high-value developments have transformed its property market. Many of country’s big property developers are building apartments, hotels, and shopping malls in the city. In recent years, some residences have developed along the Jatiwarna/Jatibening — East Bekasi toll highway, further to Cibatu in Bekasi Regency. These include Harapan Indah, Summarecon Bekasi, Kemang Pratama and Grand Galaxy City.

Prime business and commercial centres are situated in the western part of city. There are some financial centres, restaurants, and shopping centres along Kronologi Ahmad Yani, Urut-urutan Sudirman, Urut-urutan K.H. Noer Alie, and Harapan Sani Boulevard. The largest shopping centre is Grand Metropolitan with over 125,000 m2
(1,350,000 sq ft) of floor space.[8]
Other shopping centres include Metropolitan Mall, Summarecon Khazanah Bekasi, Mal Ciputra Cibubur, Udara Bekasi Hypermall, Grand Galaxy Park, Grand Mall, Blu Plaza, BTC Mall, GP Mall, Bekasi Cyber Park, Plaza Pondok Gede, and Lagoon Avenue. Many hotels developed in Bekasi, such as Santika, Horison, Harris, Aston Imperial, Amaris, Amaroossa and Tune Hotel.



Bekasi commercial centers

The development of large scale residential areas and industrial parks in Bekasi has been induced by infrastructure development, especially roads, highways and railways.

Road and highway


Bekasi is connected by the Trans-Java Toll Road, the main road across Java. There are three expressways connections from the Jabodetabek urban wilayah: the Jakarta–Cikampek Toll Road, which has three exits in Bekasi; the Jakarta Outer Cincin Road, which provides access to Tangerang, Jakarta and Bogor; and the new Bekasi-Cawang-Kampung Jawi Toll Road. In 2022, Jakarta-Cikampek elevated toll road will operate to ease traffic on the current toll road between Cikunir and West Karawang with a total length of 36.4 kilometres.[9]
Owing to its location as a satellite city of Jakarta, heavy rush hour traffic jams have become common on the roads between East Jakarta and Bekasi.

The Trans Pencinta bangsa operates a route within the city. Damri shuttle bus service is available from the Soekarno–Hatta International Airport to Kayuringin, Maksud Indah and Summarecon Bekasi. Taxis are widely available. The primary means of public transportation is by minibus, called
