BUS FROM PROBOLINGGO TO YOGYA

by anitayusof00

Hello,
I will be visiting Surabaya, Probolinggo (Mount Bromo) and Yogya in a few days time. After viewing sunrise at Mount Bromo, I want to get down ASAP and take a bus or train to Yogya. Many suggested to me to travel back to Surabaya instead, and then only to Yogya, but I don't want to take the same route (I'm coming from Surabaya). Plz advise me on bus from Probo to Yogya, the fare, schedule and traveling time, and to which bus terminal (in Yogya) will the bus stop. Where must I buy the bus ticket (I read somewhere saying that buying bus ticket at Probolinggo bus station is a rip off....am not sure wheather this info is correct or not. Thanks.

From Probolinggo to Yogykarta

by BUS
Non AC IDR 27,500, AC IDR 50,000, Departure 12:00,
VIP IDR 75,000 Departure 10:30, & 19:00
Bus Terminal is at Jalan Sudirman, you can take the Yellow Bemo to there for IDR 1000

As you are from Malaysia I am sure you can speak Bhasa Indonesia, avoid the ticket touts and go inside the trminal and buy the ticket from the locket or join the local passangers.

By Train
You will have to go back to Surabaya to take the train, which is more comfortable

The train from Surabaya:
05:45(ECONOMY)(Yog/Solo IDR 12,000
16:00(BUSINESS Yog/Solo IDR 36,000
17:10(BUSINESS Yog/Solo 50,000
18:15(EXECUTIVE Yog/Solo 130,000
19:00(EXECUTIVE Yog/Solo 115,000

I dont know how long it will take from Probolingo, from Surabaya to Jojja train takes about 6 hours, by Bus may be 8 to 10 hours.

Bus Terminal in Yogyakarta is Terminal Penumpang Giwangan (Giwangan Bus Terminal). Jalan Imogiri, Giwangan, Yogyakarta 55163, 0274 378288, 7482222 its 4 km south east to City center.

Hi Anita, if you want to take different route from Brom to Yogyakarta:
so you'd better take a bus or mini bus from bromo to MALANG, then you could take an executive air conditioned bus from Malang to Yogyakarta,

Re: BUS FROM PROBOLINGGO TO YOGYA

Ok, thanks....
Any idea on the bus fare from Probo - Malang, and Malang - Jogja ? Travelling time ? Is the bus frequent or not ?

Re: BUS FROM PROBOLINGGO TO YOGYA

by explore_discover

Anita, the Bus schedule which I told you was from probolinggo not from Surabaya :) The Train Schedule was from SBY

Even from Surabaya, the bus take the route via Malang to Jogja

Re: BUS FROM PROBOLINGGO TO YOGYA

Taking Bimo to Malang and then wait to get the bus may take much longer then directly from Probolinggo, anyway you can ask peoples when you go to the terminal beofre taking the Bus.

Travel Tips for Yogyakarta

Orientation

by mansionion

Staying in Malioboro area is not really a setback - most of Jogja's places of interest are located nearby. Jalan Malioboro itself is a good place to start for some sight seeing and shopping. At the end of the street is Pasar Briaharjo and Mirota batik store for more shopping.

You can also walk to the Dutch Fort, 3 March Memorial Park, President palace, Post Office, Bank Indonesia and other colonial buildings from there. Jogja must visit places - Keraton & Tamansari - are a bit further, accesible by taking the becak(tricycle) or taxi from Malioboro (fare starting from approx Rp10,000). Jogja's other must visit places - Borobodur & Prembanan Temples - are located abt 1 hour drive from the city. Its better if you visit the temples by joining a tour from Jogja, most of the travel agents are located at Jalan Sostrowijayan, Jogja's backpackers place (becak might cost approx Rp15,000 from Malioboro). Interesting culture and heritage.

Puppet On A String?

by RoyJava

Woodcarving is a phantastic way of expression and, in Indonesia it has a decorative as well as spiritual function. The influence of Hindu-Buddhist traditions formed the basis for Wayang (traditional Javanese theatre, born on the alun-alun, the main square of a region in a village), and it was in Yogyakarta my interests went for the Wayang! Before I didn't want to get involved with Wayang puppets ... thinking of them as weird looking puppets on a string! Although Wayang Golek can be seen all over Java, it is traditionally associated with West-Java, Pangandaran. There I bought these Wayang Golek puppets, but the idea to buy these was raised in Yogyakarta! I do paint them myself for now ...
Thanks Yogya!

Should you pointing on something

by Goldenboy

Should you point something when you ask or want to tell something, it’s the more polite to point using ‘mother finger’. It is like when you give a ‘good’ sign but in laid position, and mother finger pointed on things what you meant.

Palace Of South-Sea Goddess?

by RoyJava

A very special place to me is the TAMAN SARI, the Water Castle. Once this was a pleasure park built in feudal splendor between 1758 - 1765 for, and built by the Sultan Hamengku Buwana I. Taman Sari once had lighted underwater corridors, cool subterranean mosques, meditation platforms in de middle of lily ponds, gamelan towers, and galleries for dancing, all in mock Spanish architecture. Princesses bathed in flower-strewn pools, streams flowed above covered passageways, and boats drifted in man-made lakes. As well the Javanese War ( 1825-1830 ) as the earthquake of 1867 destroyed this romantic fairy-like place.

The Water Castle is also like a meditation place where the Yogya Sultan offers to the spirit of RATU KIDUL, the legendary Spirit-queen Of The South Sea. Some says that Taman Sari just looks like the Palace of the South Sea Goddess. She kept Her promise to Sultans ancestor, Panembahan Senopati, to guard Mataram Kingdom, the Sultans and their family and people from evil calamity. You still can see a bricked up cave which once led to the Indian Ocean by subway-tunnels ...

Wayang kulit

by ukirsari about Around Malioboro street

Along Malioboro street (otherwise Jalan Pangeran Mangkubumi), we can buy many kind of art tuffs made-in Jogjakarta. First is batik and second is wayang kulit (puppet made from buffalo skin). You can put this wayang as wallpaper decoration as my family did :) Wayang kulit with great characters. Like Dewarutji (presenting as the illustration), he's god of sea (can be compared like Neptunus in Greek myth) or Bima, Arjuna, Nakula - Sadewa (from the legend Mahabrata or Bharata Yudha/ War of Bharata family). About USD10 - USD50 in good quality (depends on the material).
