Jakarta, IO – As a Muslim-majority country enriched with abundant cultures, there are various traditions regarding the month of Ramadan in Indonesia, one of which is “Ngabuburit” or the afternoon stroll, spending time and waiting for the Iftar (breaking the fast). “Ngabuburit” derives from the Sundanese word “burit” or sunset. People engage in numerous activities to spend their afternoons, ranging from sightseeing, reciting the Quran, relaxing with family, or food hunting for Iftar.
We all agree that the favorite thing to do to spend the afternoon during Ramadan is to look for “takjil” (sweet appetizers as an Iftar tradition). The second week of Ramadan is filled with more places to visit in Jakarta for your choice of Iftar or just simply ngabuburit.
Pantai Indah Kapuk in North Jakarta has become quite popular. People engage in exciting activities to while away the day here, from sports along the jogging track, to strolling and cycling along the canal, tasting a wide array of culinary choices, or simply sea-gazing at the beach.
