From the Taman Sari district, I headed south all the way down Hayam Wuruk Street. The destination was Jakarta's iconic Monas. As I was checking it on the map, it was possible to reach Monas if I walked straight along Hayam Wuruk Street. Even though it was January, it was quite hot in Jakarta. I'm a sweaty person, and I'm getting sweaty very quickly during walking. If I kept walking like this, I was sure that by the time I reached Monas, my energy and water will be drained from my body. So I decided to take a local bus to Monas. Well, there was a nice bus lane on this wide street and the bus has The ride is extremely easy.
A river creek through the middle of Hayam Wuruk Street, and both sides of the creek were bus lanes. Because there was no pedestrian crossing, I had to cross an overpass from the sidewalk to get to the bus stop. Such a bus stop was splendid and not inferior to stations such as MRT. The fare was paid at the bus stop, not in the bus, and it is just like a train.
Waiting for the bus in the place like a platform. When you get on a local bus in a strange town, it's often hard to be sure which bus you should take. However, I felt relieved when I saw buses running in the center of Jakarta. There were staves at the bus stop, and if I asked them, they guided me in a polite manner. In this photo, two men on the left were bus attendants.
