There are plenty of things you can do while waiting for passenger. You can chat…

…or you can read the newspaper.

Both, I think, are more productive than daydreaming :D…

By the way, in case you are wondering, the Indonesian three-wheeled rickshaw is called “Becak”.

They are banned in Jakarta, but still a common means of transportation in smaller cities of Indonesia — e.g. Bandung, Yogyakarta, or Semarang.

Another version of Becak is Bentor or Becak-motor, where the pedaled-bike part is replaced with motorcycle.

They available only in some parts of Indonesia, for example in Makassar. I went there last week, but didn’t manage to take a photo of them.

Perhaps next time.

    or taking a nap. I saw many scenes (especially during mid day) when the tukang becak took a nap while waiting for passenger. Oh Becak motor also can be found in Sumatra area, (from Aceh to Riau I saw becak motor, I am not sure in Palembang-Lampung. I think there are becak motor too)

    • ‘dreaming during the day’ might still be more productive than ‘daydreaming’ :D…

      Ah, yes, I’ve heard of that, too. However, the places I’ve been to in Sumatra are very limited… thanks for the info.
