  becak mister?
by belgianchocolate

Locals use the becak for short distances ,
to bring them home when they went to the market...

They almost transportate everything in these mandriven
bikes. We saw them bring two goats to the market
and the owner was sitting between them.

Where we used a becak for?
Once to go to the 'Taman Sari' and
another time we had us driven to the busstation
to go to the prambanan.

It's a cheap and efficient way of moving into the traffic.
Make sure you know the price in advance..bargain.

(one thing , the gasses from cars and mopeds are killing here)
