Once in a while, you need to go out with public transportation. The popular one goes to TransJakarta. People tend to use it to strolling around because it’s easy and affordable. Other than that, you can also spot the new (and cute) four-wheeled bajaj called ‘Qute’ to explore the city. We think it’s the perfect time to try it out, right? And, for those of you who wants to seek popular sightseeings in Jakarta, you can also ride the City Tour Bus for free.

Car Free Day

Wake up in the early morning has become a challenge to many of us. But, we insist you to do it for Car Free Day, once in your life. It’s one of the best feelings in the world to walk the road without all that traffic and buzzing cars. There’s a lot of activities that you can do such as riding a bike, walking around with your fellas or even doing aerobics.

Jakarta is not just about cool places, fancy dining, thrilling sports, and hip events. It’s also about culture and heritage!
