Thetraveljunkie.org – For many Jakartans, the weekly Car Free Day (CFD) is the highlight of the weekend. For five hours from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. every Sunday, pedestrians claim the capital’s main thoroughfares as their own. While private vehicles reign supreme on weekdays, people can roam the streets freely on Sunday mornings. Launched in 2002 to promote cleaner air and restrict the use of private vehicles. And it was my first time to exercise or stroll the streets and enjoyed Jakarta Car Free Day.
We then walked around its pretty streets, filled with flowers between skyscrapers, to reach the soul and heart of the city. Jakarta is always as one of our fave cities in the world, one of the most creative and inspiring places ever. Enjoy Jakarta!
Stay tuned for more of our adventures in Jakarta.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
Since you’re here…
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Travel Junkie than ever but advertising revenues across the blog are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our blogsm as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Travel Junkie’s independent, travel blogsm takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our blog posting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $5, you can support The Travel Junkie – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
