Hey Charmaniee, where are you from?
First, Which city you gonna move in Indonesia?
No need to book hotel online, you can just book when you already here (except holiday)..

I'm from the Philippines.. I would like to go to Jakarta.. I would like to stay for 30 days in Jakarta. Will the immigration officers ask me about my plan in Jakarta?

Usually you will have to fill in the immigration card which includes where will you be staying. You could just google any famous hotel in Jakarta and put the hotel's name in the immigration card. It will also be useful if you could write the hotel's address to avoid direct questions by the officer.
If you only stay for 30 days, you'd better tell them you're here for holiday (not for work) in order to avoid complicated questions about your work permits etc. If you fill in the immigration card completely, usually there will be no questions asked.

Thanks for the advice. But what if someone will sponsor me, what documents should I give to the immigration?

I would not worry that much if you just go 30 days. I have never been asked any questions at immigration. Just check the holiday box on your immigration card.

Thank you. It is my first time to go outside that's why I worry like this.
