Right in the center of the zoo, there is this large status of a mother orangutan and her baby. I hope that the zoo will maintain its highest priority on orangutans as they are Indonesia’s Great Treasure.

Fixie bikes, a trend that hits Jakarta. It’s interesting that these teenagers (see their photo below) arrange the bikes on the steps that way. Ragunan Zoo, early in the morning, is filled with a few people who can enjoy fresh air while taking a stroll, jogging or riding a bike. But as it gets to 9 o’clock, people are starting to stream in; and a couple of hours after that, it gets uncomfortably crowded like an ancient Baghdad bazaar (well … I’m exaggerating a bit, but I just don’t like it when there are many people everywhere).

Bornean Orangutan, Ragunan Zoo, Jakarta

“It’s nice and cool up here”, thought the orangutan. Then it said to its friend, “I’m going down to the grass to get closer to those people. Are you coming?”. The friend said, “No, you go down. I’m staying up here. I’ll probably go to the other shed across the pole and admire the view [...]

Orangutan, Ragunan Zoo, Jakarta

Ragunan Zoo is great if you come early in the morning in the weekend, like 6 or 7 o’clock. At that time, there aren’t many people and you can think of it as a city park. The entry fee is so cheap, only Rp 6,000 (around USD 60 cents). If you come after 8 o’clock, [...]
