Hi Ben,

I back packed to Jogya alone last sept. 08.

Hard to find kaki travel sometime, but no choice then go alone.

just want to inform u is most of the local travel agent package is 2 to go! alone have to pay more.

What i did to save $$$$ is rent a motorbike and go to Borobudur and Prambanan. Easy to Go! i only using tourism map!

BTW once u reach Jogya Airport no need to take cab go to city. take Local bus which is @ Left of Air port and only IDR3000.

Hope you will have safe and enjoy trip. If u need any other info. PM me!

BTW found this is a good travel page for Jogya http://www.yogyes.com/

Hi Ben,

Malioboro is place where tourism mostly stay.

as you can find hundreds of Mid, budget Hotel. Food and Shop there.

I stayed at IDR85K/night  Fan, With attached  Bath Room(with BF meal).

Motor Bike rental can find around there too.

I been priced @ IDR40k/ Day Bike Rental.

Again remind u, IDR 3000 for Bus @ Airport to Malioboro. Ask ppl to tell you if reach the place. All local ppl know it as Few Shopping mall located there.

Again Wish You have Wonderful Trip.

Actually As i know nomatter where u go a International License is Must.

But i have riding & driving in Thai, Vietnam, Indo no buddy have asking me about License when rent the Vehicle.

Just becareful while Drivng and riding as no our place, anything happen Super difficult.

All the rental of vehicle sure they will hold ur passport till u return the vehicle, so play safe to photocopy ur Passport in case they REALLY or NO RELLY lost it.

Anyway i always have practice to photocopy my Passport Incase.......
