Celebrating Jakarta’s 489th Anniversary, we invite everyone to walk in 8 different routes in Jakarta at the same time. Realising that walking in Ramadan would be challenging, we didn’t set our bar high and just expected some people to register.
Surprisingly, within a week, all routes are full with more than 20 people per route signing up. In total, there were more than 180 people registered. We were thrilled!
On D-Day, Jakarta’s traffic, like usual, were chaotic in the afternoon. Only a few people showed up a few minutes before the scheduled walk, 3.30 p.m. We waited until 3.45 p.m., and some routes started because they had enough participants to walk and some other had to wait a little bit longer. Fortunately, all routes ended just before Maghrib.
Overall, 115 people showed up and the walk went well. Here are the pictures of the Jakarta Walking Tour Festival:
