jgg-new-routes-for-instagram-01

This is the most popular route in our Jakarta Walking Tour every year. We believe one of the reasons is because the old town offers beautiful ancient buildings built during the colonial time with interesting historical facts.

The meeting point is easy to find. If you take commuter line, you need to stop at JAKARTAKOTA train station, it’s one of the biggest, oldest, and one busiest train stations in the capital city. And if you take the Transjakarta bus, go to KOTA bus terminal and go under the tunnel to the station. Once you get there, find Starbucks and we’ll be right in front of the entrance of the Starbucks. If you need help finding it, check the googlemap location HERE

Jakarta Walking Tour Festival

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:
