Talk about how to traveling jogja by yourself (without guide)

Let's begin. If we talking about yogyakarta tours maybe first, we must know where is jogja? Yogyakarta is the city in central java, indonesia. Yogyakarta also known as student city, because there are many universities there, there are 107 universitis in special region of yogyakarta province (yogyakarta city, sleman distric, bantul distric, kulon progo distric, gunung kidul distric). Why I say special region? Because in indonesia, there are two special regions, special region of aceh and special region of yogyakarta. Yogyakarta become special region because in jogja there is a palace, Imperial Palace of Ngayogyakarta who led by sultan (king), Sultan Hamengkubuwono x. If in another province in indonesia led by governor, in jogja this province led by sultan that concurrently as governor. Ok, I think quite to talk about history of yogyakarta, let's begin our tours, trust me you can traveling jogja by yourself without guide, I'll be your guide 😁.


To go to yogyakarta, you can use many public transportation as plane, train, and bus.

Going to yogyakarta by plane

In yogyakarta there are two airport, the first one is adisutjipto airport and the second is international airport of yogyakarta, a.k.a kulon progo airport. 

1. Adisutjipto airport

Yogyakarta_tour
Adisutjipto airport. @adijanuardii
Although i just said adisutjipto airport, in fact this is international airport too. Adisutjipto airport (IATA:JOG, ICAO:WAHH) is located at sleman distric, about 9 km from yogyakarta station. Adisutjipto is the nearest airport from yogyakarta city. If you plan to traveling yogya, I recommend you coming jogja from this airport. Don't forget to see transit time from soekarno hatta international airport (CGK) if you transit, but if you got direct flight, it is better.

After arrived at adisutjipto airport, you can choose some choices, go to hotel, go to travel destination, go to malioboro, it's up to you. You can use taxi, or you waiting for your rental. Yes, you can rent a car of motorcycle before you landing at the airport.

There are many rent services in jogja, you can use application "olx" and type "rental motor" or "rental mobil", don't forget to buy roaming package because you are in different country, make olx account and change the region to "yogyakarta". You can download this application in Apple Store or Play Store. After you meet the suitable one, you can call the rental. Many people in yogyakarta can speak english although just little, you just need to use your english slowly, because if you speak too fast, they will difficult understand what you mean, including me πŸ˜†

There are some requirements if you want to rent a car or motorcycle (I suggest you to rent motorcycle than a car, because cheaper and your mobilization faster than use a car):

1. Have driving license
2. Special for tourist, you must show a round-trip ticket
3. You must guarantee three original identity card (paspor/id card/visa/student card, etcetra)

Rental cost for motorcycle rent in jogja (24 hours) start from Rp 50.000 and for a car start from Rp 150.000,- (don't forget to bargain the cost)

Besides using olx application, you can call some phone number below, I have saved from my twice trip from jogja ago, I have travelled around jogja for three weeks and I still miss jogja and want to go there again.

Motorcycle rent service in jogja

1. Ftshopindo rental (+6281802675362) start from 50k
2. Dedy rental (+6281328831228) start from 45k
3. Alif transport (+6282297591977) start from 40k
4. Ahmad kartadi (+6285228655550) start from 45k
5. Alfayubbi (+6281321144347) start from 45k

Car rent service in jogja

1. Myesha transport (+6282220050058) start from 250k without driver, 550k with driver.
2. BM Transport (+62817164269) start from 250k without driver, 550k with driver
3. Gondomanan rental (+6285729353354) start from 350k
4. Vanrowi rental (+6282134386109) start from 250k
5. Gibran trans holiday (+6282146655921) start from 250k

I recommend you to rent motorcycle than a car, because in jogja often traffic jam, it will be wasting time. Don't forget make appointment with rent service crew, asked them to delivered your car/motorcycle. At that time I asked them to deliver my bike to adisutjipto airport. You will get vehicle certificate (in indonesia we call it "STNK"), two helmets, and rain coat.

2. Yogyakarta international airport

Yogyakarta_tour
YIA Airport. @wonderfuljogja
Yogyakarta international airport a.k.a. Kulon Progo Airport is  the new airport in special region of yogyakarta province. Inaugurated on April 29th, 2019 by president of Republic Indonesia Joko widodo. This airport able to accomodate until 28 plane. The runway lenght is 3.250 meters, the biggest the heaviest plane able to landing in this airport.

Yogyakarta international airport (IATA:YIA, ICAO:WAHI) is located at temon sub-distric, distric kulon progo, yogyakarta. It's about  43,1 km from yogyakarta city. The distance make you must use more transportation to yogyakarta city.

If you arrive at this airport, you can use public transportation like damri, satelqu, taxi, train.

Damri

There are 12 fleets of damri from kulon progo airport/YIA to yogyakarta damri office. It will take 90 minutes. The cost for this route is Rp 50.000,-. If you don't know Damri, Damri is a bus.

Schedule:
YIA - Yogyakarta: 09.50, 12.30, 13.30, 14.10, 18.00, 18.50 WIB (GMT +7)

Yogyakarta - YIA: 06.00, 07.00, 10.00, 11.00, 14.00, 15.00 WIB (GMT +7)

Source: tribun travel

Satelqu

Satelqu is a shuttle bus. There are two types of satelqu, 8 seats and 10 seats. Satelqu will depart from Yogyakarta International Airport (YIA) 30 minutes after the plane landed.

You can buy the ticket at satelqu counter or just going to satelqu bus and the driver will help you to buy the ticket. It similar to damri above, enter the damri, and you will pay on the damri. Similar to damri, it will take 90 minutes. The cost of satelqu is Rp 90.000.

Route of satelqu is from Adisutjipto to YIA at 9 and 10 a.m. and from YIA to adi sutjipto at 1 p.m. 

Airport Train

Although I said airport train, actually airport train from YIA is not in the airport. The nearest station from YIA is in Wojo station, it's about 6 km from YIA. You must use shuttle bus (damri) from YIA to wojo station, it will attempt for 15 minutes and paid Rp 10.000,-

Ok, after you know where wojo station, you can use airport train from there. It will take 45 minutes from wojo station to maguwo station in yogyakarta (near adisutjipto airport). You must pay Rp 30.000 to use airport train from wojo in kulon progo to maguwo in jogja.

Schedule:
Wojo station (kulon progo) - Maguwo station (yogyakarta): departure 14.04 WIB (GMT +7) - arrival 14.50 WIB (GMT +7)

Maguwo station (Yogyakarta) - Wojo Station (kulon progo): departure 10.40 WIB (GMT +7) - arrival 11.26 WIB (GMT +7)

Taxi

I think this is the best solution for you if you are in hurrying. Use taxi from YIA and you will arrive at jogja about 90 minutes although the cost is more expensive than the other. From information that i got, from YIA to malioboro, you will spend about Rp 350.000,-

The conclusion if you want to go to jogja by plane, the best one is you must arrived at adisutjipto airport and then you must rent a motorcycle.😊


Going to Yogyakarta by train

Beside using airplane, you can going to jogja by train too. In this topic I will show you train schedule from jakarta to yogyakarta at all station. There are 51 train trips.  I will show you some trips from the cheap one until the expensive class. The price is depend on the facility of the train.

Before I explain the schedule, you must know that jakarta to jogja is about 8-11 hours by train, if you are in hurrying, let's use plane as accomodation. You can buy the ticket from application like traveloka, tiket.com, pegi-pegi and many others. You can download it at Play Store or Apple Store. You need transfer some money to the bank account and you will get your ticket.

Train schedule from jakarta to yogyakarta

1. Malabar train. From pasar senen station (jakarta) to yogyakarta station. Economy clas. 11 hours 52 minutes (04.10 p.m. - 04.02 a.m. next day). Rp 220.000,-

Actually there are many more train trips, but I recommend trip above for you. If you never use train in indonesia before, the difference between economy and executive class is the chair, the chair in the economy class cannot lay down like executive class. One thing that you must underline, you must know in where station you have to get off, sometimes, train crew forgot to wake you up if you taken night train. 😁

All of train in indonesia is uses Air Conditioner (AC), so you will feel the comfort during the trip.

Going to yogyakarta by bus

After talking about how going to yogyakarta by plane and train, now I will talk about how going to yogyakarta by bus, of course from jakarta too.

There are many bus companies take this route, but in this article I just tell you 5 bus companies, because, just them that sell their ticket in traveloka application. So if you want to order bus from jakarta to yogyakarta, you just download traveloka application at playstore or applestore, search bus & travel ticket, choose jakarta as departure and yogyakarta as arrival. After you choose the bus, you must pay some money to traveloka bank account, and your ticket will be there in your email inbox. Similar like when you order train ticket above.

There are 121 bus trips from jakarta to yogyakarta, I will tell you some of them.

Bus schedule from jakarta to yogyakarta

1. Sinar jaya bus. From lebak bulus bus station (jakarta) to giwangan bus station. Executive class. 12 hours 45 minutes (03.00 p.m. - 03.45 a.m. next day). Rp 124.740,-

Actually there is no difference between ecomony, business and executive class on bus, the different is just about time attempt to destination. 

All of bus above have AC and toilet, so you will feel comfort during the trip.

Maybe somebody asked, why start from jakarta? Jakarta is the main gate of international arrival in indonesia. The busiest international airport, the crowded one, it's soekarno hatta international airport (CGK). So, i think everybody that read this article will arrive in indonesia from jakarta or bali, because bali is farther than jakarta, so I use jakarta as benchmark.

If you come to indonesia for travel, I can say indonesia is a beautiful country, locate in equator, so make this country just has two season, dry and rainy season, has many cultures, many religions. But, something that you must underline, not all of city in my country (indonesia) safe for you. So I recommend you to use direct flight from your country to yogyakarta or although you must transit in jakarta or bali, make sure you have airplane ticket to yogyakarta yet. I don't recommend you to use bus or train to go to yogyakarta, because it will be unsafe for you. And make sure you order ticket to adisutjipto airport not yogyakarta international airport, it will make you easy to get in yogyakarta than order ticket for YIA. As my tittle of this article "do it yourself", so I will guide you to the detail and easy one.

Yogyakarta tours

After you finish all instruction above, i hope you already have motorcycle and hostel, so let's begin travelling jogja 😁 

1. Borobudur temple

Yogyakarta_tour
Borobodur
I choose borobudur temple as the number one, because I think some of you coming jogja for it 😊 please forgive me if I wrong

Borobudur is the biggest buddhist temple in the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for culture.

Borobudur temple or in bahasa indonesia "candi borobudur" is located at jalan badrawati, komplek wisata candi borobudur, kecamatan borobudur, magelang jawa tengah. It just about 40 km from yogyakarta.

This is the map of borobudur temple. If you go to borobudur by motorcycle, it will take more than on 1 hour 30 minutes from yogyakarta. So, if you say borobudur temple is located in jogja, you are wrong.

History of borobudur

Borobudur is estimated to have been built in 800s AD, until now, still unknown who built it. Borobudur temple was built during syailendra dinasty between 760 AD and 830 AD. It is estimated it took 100 years to build borobudur. Borobudur was completed 100% in the samaratungga dinasty (825 AD).

Did you know that borobudur was abandonded and dissapeared into the ground until is was rediscovered in 1814? It is unknown why borobudur was abandonded, it was estimated that between 928 and 1006 AD when Mpu sindok moved the capital of medang kingdom to east java because of volcanic eruption, although it was uncertain, some people believed it was a factor why borobudur was abandonded.

Borobudur was rediscovered in 1814 when indonesia under brithish rule by Stamford raffles. Sir Stamford raffles was heard news, in the forest near bumisegoro village was found large buildings buried in the ground, then he asked HC Cornelius to investigated that discovery. 

It took 25 years for borobodur to open  it again in 1835. 

Traveling borobudur

Borobudur wide is 123x123 meters, now 35 meters high, first 42 meters high. I don't know why the height was decreased.

Yogyakarta_tour
Prambanan temple
After talk about the biggest buddhist temple in the world, we will talk about prambanan or roro jonggrang temple as the biggest hindu temple in indonesia and the most beautiful hindu temple in south east asia.

Prambanan temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, similar to Borobudur temple.

Prambanan is located at prambanan sub-distric, sleman distric, yogyakarta. This is the maps of prambanan temple

Prambanan is not too far from adisutjipto airport. If we want to go yogyakarta from airport, we must turn left, but if we want to go to prambanan temple from airport, we must turn right and then go straight ahead at the road about 10 minutes, and you will see prambanan temple is on your left.

History of prambanan temple

There is fairy tale about prambanan, that is love story, love story roro jonggrang and bandung bondowoso. Bandung bondowoso was falling in loved with roro jonggrang, but roro jonggrang doesn't love him, to refuse subtly, roro jonggrang asked him to make 1.000 temple at one night. Bandung bondowoso agree to the her request, he make temples with demon's help.

Roro jonggrang knows that, so she asked villager to light a fire and mashing paddy with pestle. The demons that help bandung bondowoso though it was morning, so they stopped and dissapeared. He failed to complete the 1.000th temple. Bandung bondowo was very angry  and cursed roro jonggrang to be the 1.000th temple. 

The story above just a fairy tale. The real history is prambanan was built in 850 DA by King Rakai Pikatan. Prambanan built to counter borobudur and also as a tribute to the god shiva.

Traveling prambanan

Traveling prambanan easier than traveling borobodur, because location of prambanan temple is near to jogja. It just about 17 kilometers from malioboro street and 7,8 kilometers from adisutjipto airport. 

Prambanan starts open at 06.00 a.m. until 05.00 p.m., prambanan, borobodur, ratu boko temple is in one management of PT. Wisata candi, so the ticket price is not much different.
