    • Yogyakarta at 6h20 AM, accommodation, bus, storage?

      by charlottexmachin Online Now Apr 4, 2014 at 5:08 PM

      Hi,
      I will catch a flight from Lombok to Yogyakarta, but the only cheap fly (with Lion Air) arrive at 6h20 AM in Yogya. What can I do with my backpack (70 liter) until I can check in in my accommodation? I don’t have booking cause I want to see the room before taking it. Does anyone know a safe place where I can leave my backpack until I check in? Can I leave my backpack at the police station? Can I trust them? If so, is there a police station in town?
      Also, do you have a safe, clean and cheap accommodation to suggest? I’m on a budget and I saw rooms around 100 000-120 000 roupies, but there’s not much info about them on trip advisor.
      And last questions: which bus goes from the airport to town? And which street can I find most of the guesthouse, homestay or budget hotel?
      Thanks a lot!

      3 days 2 night itinerary and driver in Yogyakarta and Burobudur

      by phingy Online Now Mar 12, 2014 at 1:47 AM

      Hello all!

      My friend and I are planning a 3 days 2 nights trip to Yogya and Burobudur. We likw culture and history and have planned the itinerary as follows:

      Day 1
      Arrive in Yogya airport 1pm
      Lunch in Yogya
      Prambanan
      Ratu Boko (is it worth going?)
      Check in hotel (appx 10-15 drive from Burobudur)

      Day 2
      Burobudur Sunrise Tour
      Burobudor whole day
      Lunch and dinner at nearby hotels (walkable from the monument)

      Day 3
      Check out hotel after breakfast
      Drive to Yogya
      Lunch in Yogya
      Souvenir shopping

      I have contacted a few drivers and received quotation of appx 350k to 450k rupiah for each day (Day 1 and 3). Is this price reasonable? What is the usual price for car and driver hire? Essentially I only need the driver for about 6-7 hours per day but it seemed that the price quoted is for a full day trip?

      Appreciate any advise or further suggestions!

      Thanks!

      From Yogyakarta to Borobodur at 5 AM?

      by matjung Online Now Feb 1, 2014 at 10:14 AM

      Hi, I am not sure if it is a good idea, but I was thinking about traveling by night traing from Jakarta to Yogyakarta.
      If I am not mistaken then there is a train available that leaves Jakarta at 9 PM and arrives Yogjakarta at 4.22 AM.
      I was wondering, what on earth shall I do in yogjakarta at this time of the day?
      Then I came up with the idea of visiting Borobodur before Sunrise.
      Is this a rather stupid idea?
      Are luggage lockers available in Yogjakarta?
      Are any early morning tours available?
      Or should I take a taxi?
      How much time does it take from Yogjakarta to Borobodur?
      Is a closer train station available?
      Is there an early morning service in the temple available?

    • Best way to see bromo & Ijen from Yogya

      by leaberry Online Now Jan 13, 2014 at 5:40 PM

      Hi!
      I'm going to Indonesia on May.
      I'm spending some time at Yogyakarta and heading to Bali afterwards, but also want to see Bromo & Ijen in between.
      I was wondering what's the quickest way to getting there and seeing it all, since i've read that you can book tours that take you to Bromo and then Ijen and then Bali, but it all takes like 3 days(?)
      I really don't want to spend that long traveling from one spot to another, so I was wondering if there is a better way... any suggestions?
      Thank you

      How much is the appropriate charge to hire a taxi?

      by nano036 Online Now Oct 5, 2013 at 8:00 PM

      Hi, this is my first question about barobudur-prambanan.\

      I would like to go to Yogyakarta next year, maybe from late January to early February.
      I will travel alone and would like to find travelers to visit barobudur-prambanan together, but just in case, I would like to know how much the appropriate charge for hiring taxi for one day or a half day.

      Here is my plan
      Day 1 Fly from Jakarta by Lcc, use a taxi to the guesthouse.

      How much is the charge from the airport to downtown?

      Day2 Hire a taxi to visit barobudur-prambanan , I will arrange a taxi at a gueshouse

      I would like to know the charge.

      Day3 Walk around downtown or go to a famous place, sorry I didn't research yet!

      So give me some advice!

      Day4 Back to Jakarta by Lcc

      I would like to join the tour from Jakarta but it is very expensive around 700 US dollar for 2days 1nigt, because the tour I found is basiclly for 2 ppl at the same hotel room or guesthouse.

      Moreover I am Japanese and some ppl advise me not to use Japanese agency due to higher price than others.

      Do you know a reasonable agency in Yogyakarta or can I arrange private tour with Taxi driver or bike rider at a guesthouse?

      If you helped me, it would be wonderful!

      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.

      by BorneoGrrl Online Now Dec 14, 2012 at 4:03 AM

      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 :)
