If you feel tired and bored in the office you may try to take the Trans Jakarta Bus way in Jakarta which will cost you only Rp3,500 ( three thousand Rupiah).
There may be some long queue when you start taking such Bus way from Blok M which is the central part of Jakarta. After a while when you are already in the Bus you can feel free and away from your routine work. You may decide to stop at one of the Bus stop at Jalan Sudirman and start walking in the pedestrian side of the Road. If you want to see the Sport Stadium Bung Karno at Senayan you can stop in front of the Softball field at Senayan, and just walk into the Senayan Sport Stadium.
If you are lucky enough you can feel the fresh air and the soft breeze of the wind at the surroundings of Senayan where there are many trees in such sport center. In the morning or at the afternoon or night time you may found several men, women, children, youths jogging or running around the Bung Karno Senayan Sport Stadium.
You may found tennis court, basket sport hall, badminton and jogging tracks at the Senayan Sport called Gelora Bung Karno. For your info this Sport Stadium was build by the Russians Contractors hired by Indonesia
during the Asian Games held in Jakarta in the year 1960-ies. During my youth age I liked to go to the Senayan Sport Stadium to take a swim with my friends at the Swimming pool in Senayan Sport Stadium.
I really enjoyed swimming after coming back home from my elementary School which is really sweet memories for me and my friends.
The Yayasan management of the Gelora Bung Karno is responsible to take care and maintain the condition of this Senayan Gelora Bung Karno Sport Stadium. I have taken some Photos from the below website : PHOTOS OF GELORA BUNG KARNO SPORT STADIUM
If you happen to stay at the Sultan Hotel at Jakarta you are really close to this Senayan Sport Stadium where you can just walk or jog at this Senayan Stadium. You can feel the fresh air if you take jogging in the early morning. Well jogging at Senayan is really an exiting travel experiences for you if you happen to be staying at this Sultan Hotel.
