Indonesian people are getting used to the New Normal era and are starting to return to their usual activities. Currently, various recreational activities have also begun to be carried out with the opening of several tourist attractions in several cities. Even so, health and physical distancing protocols surely still need to be applied by all citizens. The following are some safe activities to do in the new normal era. Although most of it is done outdoors, there are also some activities that can be done indoors. Recreational sites or places have also implemented health protocols and physical distancing for safer conditions.
Camping and outbound activities
For more greens, fresher air, and more activities, why not head a few hours away from the city center and retreat in for a few nights in lush greenery and clean unpolluted air? There a lot of camping grounds in Jakarta’s surrounding area such as Bogor and Sukabumi; on this grounds, kids can explore nature in a safe environment, and if you have larger crowds, they can even facilitate an outbound activity for the whole family. Some of the recommended camping grounds include Tanakita (Sukabumi), Sayang Heulang (Bandung), and Gunung Pancar (Bogor). If you don’t feel like purchasing or hauling a camping set, we recommend trying ‘glamping’ or glamorous camping; where you will get all the fun excitement of staying outdoor, but without all the fuss of regular camping. You don’t even need to cook, make a tent, or even make your own bed!
Go to the beach
With there are a lot of beachfront hotels, take a fun recreation at the beach is safer in the New Normal era. The service and health protocols provided by the hotels will also make your activity more comfortable. But, going to the beach is also considered low risk if you’re strict with maintaining physical distancing and health protocols.
Picnic or hang out at the park
For a quick and easy fun, pack a little basket and discover the few green areas or parks in the city. Making homemade delights and taking a blanket to sit outside and enjoy it can be pleasant! Just dare to explore and you will find the perfect spot.
Going for an adventurous activity could be a fun recreation during the New Normal era. While is possible to still maintain the physical distancing, the adrenaline rush and mesmerizing natural view can be quite a healing.
Go to the museum
Without much physical contact with other visitors, go to a museum is a great recreational activity for the New Normal era.
Shopping at the mall
Entering the new normal era, cycling has become a new trend among the people of Jakarta. In less than two months, enthusiasts of this activity soared rapidly, from adults, teens, to children. Rows of cyclists on the side of Jakarta’s main roads have become a normal sight for us. Besides for healthy purposes, cycling is already a part of Jakarta’s urban lifestyle as well. As much as how positive this activity is, cyclists still have to follow some safety and health protocols, especially during this pandemic.
