  • These are 12 Ways How to Greet People in Indonesia

    While many Indonesians can communicate in English, you can always impress them by greeting them using Bahasa Indonesia, their native tongue. 1. For greetings, you can always say a simple ‘Hi’ or ‘Hello’.

    In non-formal situations, you might say ‘Apa Kabar?’ (How are you?).

    More formally, you might want to use ‘Selamat Pagi’ in place of Good Morning, ‘Selamat Siang’ for Good Afternoon, ‘Selamat Sore’ for Good Evening, and ‘Selamat Malam’ for Good Night.Selamat malam is not used if you want to go to sleep. 2. Note that the 'e' in 'Selamat' is not pronounced.

    To pronounce it correctly simply say 'slamat'. Also its perfectly OK to omit the 'selamat' completely and simply say 'pagi'. Similar to English where Good Morning is abbreviated into 'Morning.
