    • Rent a Car or Cancel It?

      Yogyakarta Aug 16, 2016 at 5:06 AM

      Hi All,
      I will start my first solo traveling on September to Yogyakarta. As I say it to my mom (yeah I am a 'little' on body girl) she called her friend to rent a car (with driver of course) named Semberani Jogja. It doesn't necessary I guess, because it doesn't support my target to solo traveling.

      Whether to go to Bali or Mauritius for Honeymoon in last week of November 2016 for 7 days?

      Bali Aug 11, 2016 at 11:21 AM

      I and my fiancee are planning to go for our honeymoon after a week of our marriage on 28th of November to a tropical Country for a week. we were considering Bali as a first preference and Mauritius as second. but most of the web search showed that it will be rainy weather in bali during that period but Mauritius was considered better in weather conditions. I'm still confused about the destination due to weather. we are looking for a relaxing and a cultural activities but without a good weather condition it can get ruined.

      Please help me decide what is the best place considering the weather conditions and activities and places we can discover during those 7 days.

      Solo to Bromo (Cemoro Lawang)

      by FranckT Online Now Jul 9, 2012 at 12:15 PM

      Hello,

      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 ?

    • Solo -> Ketep Pass -> Borobudur -> Gedung Songo -> Jogja -> Parambanan -> Solo -> Sukuh & Ceto

      by Seanpai Online Now Nov 4, 2008 at 11:23 PM

      Hello,

      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.

    • From Solo to Jogja

      by feibeesi Online Now Dec 18, 2005 at 7:43 PM

      Hi all,

      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.
