a city’s trademark ride
I think most of the town in Indonesia has its own becak ride. I have twice tasted becak ride in two cities, Bandung and Jogja. And I dont think it has that many differences from each other.
But when I went to Cirebon, and got to taste their ride it astounded me. Its significantly different from the ride I’ve experienced in Bandung and Jogja. The ride was rather small compared to the others, the sitting has a weird upward position so that you are seated on a relaxed leaned backwards position that really gives a cozy, comfortable feeling to the passenger. It also made getting off was a little bit harder, you have to put some effort to it.
Well that being said, riding the becak really has made my Cirebon trip more enjoyable
