Hi, do you have the latest train schedules from Yogya to Solo and Solo to Yogya? Should we stop at Purwosari or Balapan Station if i would like to go to Slamet Riyadi? Any idea what is the train cost? Appreciate your advice.
I have heard about a direct mini-bus from Solo to Cemoro Lawang. Does it sound possible ? Is there a way to get more information about it ?
I found a cheap flight from Yogyakarta to Surubaya : can it be a good alternative ?
Otherwise, would you know if the Solo area (including Candi Sukuh) can be visited as a day trip from Yogyakarta ?
Dear fellow VT friend,
I am planning a trip to Solo - Yogya for 5d4n, my flight is to Solo (return) and would like some idea how to plan the trip...

Would welcome any suggestion on the logistic, transport and accomodations? Please also advise the price for hiring a car with driver (there is only 2 of us).. hope to hear your all of you.
thank you in advance.
As everyone knows, Mt Merapi is erupting.
Air Asia even cancel flights to Solo and Jogya today.
I will arrive 12 Nov at Solo and back 17 Nov from Jogya.
If situation fine, is there any tourism activity allowed?
Is Solo and Jogya situation very bad now? and hotels close these days?
How about Gedong Sango and Dieng, are they impacted by the volcano ashes?
Please help to descript the condition/situation.

I will arrived in Solo around 9am.
Plan to visit Candi Ceto, Sukuh and Mangkunegaran by rented bike. Possible?
After that, is there any transport from Solo to Gedong Songo?

After Dieng Plateau, then goto Jogya to check in hotel.
Any transport from Dieng Plateau to Gedong Songo?
The rest of the days will go around Jogya such as Prambanan and Borobudur.
Urgently need advices from all. Please!!! Thanks!!!
Hi, i need to get from solo to ketapang. I want to stay in solo and then go to bali after that. I believe i need to get the ferry across from ketapang. Any help would be great, thanks :)
Need some advice. Am planning to spend 3 nights & 4 days in Central Java. Following is the plan:
Day 1- Arrive in Solo. See sights around Solo & go to Ketep Pass in the afternoon to see Merapi & other volcanoes. Proceed to Borobudur. Stay at Manohara Hotel
Day 2- See Borobudur & other two temples (Mendut & Pawon) and proceed to Dieng Plateau mid morning. See Gedung Songo temples & leave for Jogja in the evening.
Stay at one of the hotels in Jogja.
Day 3- See Jogja & Parambanan temple in the morning. Go to Solo & see Candi Ceto & Candi Sukuh in the afternoon. Stay in one of the hotels in Solo
Day 4- See palaces in Solo & return.
I'm planning to hire a car for the 4 days. Is this itinerary do-able? I'm not too sure of the distance between Borobudur & Gedung Songo temples (can this be covered in 8 hours)? Any advice or recommendation would help. Cheers.

Hi! Is this arrangement possible? Thanks
We are loooking for 2 rooms available on the 29 of december at the Istana griya in solo and for a transport from solo airport to solo and then from solo to Yogyakarta to end in Bali around the 5 january
I plan to visit Borobudur and the surrounding temples in Feb'06 and plan to use Jogja as my base. Have already got complimentary Air Asia tickets to touch down at Solo airport. Heard that Jogja is about 60km from Solo. Is there a direct taxi service from Solo airport to city centre of Jogja?
Accomodation should be around Jln. Malioboro. Would it be difficult to hire a driver and car for sightseeing purposes? What is the going rate for a day's rental?
Many thanks in advance.
Where is Solo and what's its Chinese name?
