Is there conman activities ?
Where can i shop for the best batik both man/women at the best possible price with no rip off ?
From the time i land in Yogyakartha, as a newbie , how am i to make way to a hotel, which is not too expensive, not Phoenix nor a backpacker , a good accommodating hotel, which provides a good a/c room and the shopping districts (Batik shopping) and food outlets must be within the walking distance
We are a couple who are going to Yogyakarta to study for a semester, from September to February this year. Do any of you have any recommendations regarding places to live? Price isn't really a big issue, as Indonesia is cheap in comparison to our home country. We were looking at this place tigalima.wordpress.com/room-... (the Room Deluxe), but they were full.
Would be nice if it wasn't too far from UGM :)
Thanks in advance!
Hi all, I've been reading some of the forum posts and they've been helpful. Just some questions from me : Should I make tour bookings to visit all the wonderful historical sites in Yogyakarta e.g Borobudur & Prambanan prior to arrival or can I easily get those tours arranged when I'm in Yogyakarta? Is it a good idea to hire a driver and car, or is public transport sufficient? I read lots of good things about Hotel Phoenix, is that a good location. It seems to be away from Jalan Malioboro where the shopping and nightlife are. I'd like to keep my options open and decide my itinerary day by day. I'm traveling on a budget so hope that helps to answer my questions. Thanks :)

Hi! I am considering joining the Interhash 2012 which will be held in Borobudur. The website for it says 24-27 May is outside the tourism high season. I wonder why late May is outside the tourist high season and what the weather will be like in Jogyakarta/Borobudur/Prambanan then? E.g. will it be dry and slightly cooler or hot and rainy? Thanking you in advance for your responses.
We will arrive Yogyakarta Airport at 1:30pm. If we hired a taxi to Prambanan and Ratu Boko, then to the hotel in downtown. Do u think we have enough time to visit the important sights of these two places, including sunset view? How much do you think the taxi will cost us? Thanks
Hi, I have a friend who would be based with Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta (ISI) for a period of 6 months starting from February onwards and she's expected to rent a house/room somewhere in Jogja throughout that said duration.

Hi Am planning to visit Jogja soon, and I am considering coming in via Solo airport (Silkair flight from Changi airport). Is it easy to get transport from Solo to Jogja (and back a few days later to catch the return flight)? And if so how much would the cost be? The reason for this is that from Singapore to Jogja I have 2 options - Garuda via Jakarta or Air Asia direct. But Air Asia departure from Jogja is at 7.25 am and I'd rather not have such an early flight if I can help it. Thanks.
Hi All! I am planning to visit Yogyakarta by 27th of June. However, I don't know where should i start from and where should i pay a visit to. I'm a budget backpacker and travelling alone. I would like to go to certain places such as Borobudur, Prambanan, Ijo temple and mount merapi. Is it necessary to have a local guide there or i can go anywhere on my own by taking public transport? And i heard that it's not suitable to climb mt merapi at his period of time. I would like to try mount climbing( I've never done this before and really want to experience it). Any places to recommend? Thanks a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Was thinking of staying near beach during our trip to Yogya but couldn't find any? Read about turtle watching at Samas Beach... anyone with info? How about Drini, Kukup, Krakal or Baron beach? Worthwhile visiting?
Hi, we are travelling with kids and would want to have a flexible schedule... also that we generally prefer to not have driver.... So was thinking of getting a car for 4 full days... then engage the service of driver if needed (e.g. Merapi.... was told road may be very bad) Any input is welcome. Thanks.
We'll be visiting Jogja end of this month so have narrowed down a few accommodations... found this guest house style quite interesting. Not exactly cheap cheap but with character (from what can be seen in yogyes website). However, can't find much info at other sites. So any info from fellow travellers would be great! We'll be travelling with young kids so a bit particular this time. Thanks!!
Hi, how is Jogja post 2011 eruption? Would appreciate some updates... reg road condition within city and major roads to main attractions (ie Borobudur, Prambanan, various beaches, Dieng, Solo)? And how is Merapi itself? Possible and safe now to visit? Best place to view is still Kaliurang? We are travelling with small children end of this month so would like to know. Appreciate your reply. Thanks!
