The Jakarta Provincial Government is anticipating what’s being referred to as revenge tourism, or an influx of tourists following the loosening of social restrictions, by implementing the odd-even rule at and around the city’s tourist attractions.

Three tourist attractions have been reopened following the drop in Jakarta’s Enforcement of Restrictions on Public Activities (PPKM) level from 4 to 3, namely Taman Impian Jaya Ancol in North Jakarta, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah in East Jakarta, and the Setu Babakan Betawi Cultural Village in South Jakarta. 

In an official decree issued yesterday by Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan concerning the city’s Level 3 PPKM implementation, the odd-even rule on roads around the three tourist spots will be enforced starting 12pm Friday until 6pm Sunday every week

As has become increasingly mandatory for public facilities across Indonesia, all visitors to the sites are expected to scan barcodes using the integrated health and mobility tracking app PeduliLindungi at the entrance. Operation hours on the tourist spots are limited until 9pm and children under 12 years old are not allowed entry.

On the other hand, the odd-even rule on the capital’s three major roads Sudirman, Thamrin, and Rasuna Said remains in place until at least Sept. 20. The relaxation of the traffic rule was first introduced when Jakarta was downgraded to level 3 from level 4 of PPKM late last month.
