Horse-drawn Carriage In A Residential Area

A decorated carriage drove through the residential streets of Jakarta

I thought that only tourists from somewhere else would ride on such a thing, but apparently not so much. When I was walking in the residential area of Jakarta, I heard the sound of horses' hooves, and I saw a carriage called "Andon" in the distance. I've seen Andon around Fatahillah Square, a tourist attraction, and waiting for customers on the side of the road, but this was the first time I saw an Andon running in a residential area where there were no tourists.

The horses in the carriage were decorated, and the carriage itself was decorated with pom-poms and flowers, creating an extraordinary atmosphere. It was a bit out of place in a residential area filled with everyday life. It's hard to imagine that tourists are coming all the way to a nondescript residential area. It would be the locals who are riding.

Even in Jakarta, where Bajaj and motorbike taxis are now the main means of transportation for the locals, horse-drawn carriages may have once been the way of transportation for the locals. The horse-drawn carriages driving through the residential areas seemed to be a vestige of that era.
