I don't know if you can call this buggy as the dictionary defines it: "light carriage pulled by one horse, for one or two persons," but in Indonesian this kind of carriage is called "Andong".
Andong is originally a Javanese word refering to this kind of vehicle. It is still used as a means of public transportation in a number of cities on Java island, particularly Yogyakarta and Solo/Surakarta. In Bandung, Andong is not a means of transportation, but a means of recreational rides, very much like those you can find at the Central Park, New York City and probably some other cities in other parts of the world. This one is operating on Jalan Ganesha (Ganesha Street) near the campus of Bandung Institute of Technology and Bandung Zoo.
