How to get to Yogyakarta Indonesia?


There are no direct flights from Manila to Yogyakata Indonesia. From Manila, you can take a plane to Jakarta or Bali and then take another flight to Yogyakarta. Another option is to take a train or bus from Jakarta. Trains from Jakarta depart from Pasar Senen Station or Gambir Station. Travel time from Jakarta is about 8 hours and arrives in Yogyakarta in either Lempuyangan Station or Tugu Station depending on the type of train you take. By bus, there are several bus companies that offer Jakarta to Yogyakarta routes. Travel time is around 11 to 12 hours.

To search for cheap flights to Jakarta, I highly recommend booking via Traveloka.com - one of Southeast Asia's leading travel booking sites.
