What do you do when you can name something by Turobot
Good day people. Another day another photo series. For today I will focus on transportation theme. Some of the pictures are black and white because I was feeling artsy at that time. Heh :p
Ah yes, Becak. One of the classic Indonesian mode of transport that exist in the islands of Java, Sumatra and probably Kalimantan and Sulawesi. They are no longer exist in big cities since they are pretty slow.
You don’t expect speedy transportation when you ride on one. It’s a slow paced mode transportation and you can appreciate the surrounding more. Best when you carry a camera with you.
Andong or Dokar (depends on the area) is another classic mode of transportation. Obviously faster than Becak but still slower than cars they are much more rare. They also not really available in big cities since horseapples (slang for horse poops, this is English slang btw) means city officials are not too thrilled with horse poops scattered on busy roads.
Angkot, or Angkutan Kota (City transports) is a pretty common, more modern mode of cheap transportations in cities. They modify several cars so it can carry maximum 13 people including the driver but packed like a can of sardeens. They are cheap and taking a pretty fixed route. Indicated by the name and number code. Some of them are also colour coded.
This is maybe the pic that shows the most common personal transportation in Indonesia. Car is pretty obvious. Scooters are like ant since they are cheap and affordable (1000-15000 dollars each) and bicycle is re-emerging thanks to people start promoting healthy life with biking.Gigawings | 12 Recommends
