Yogyakarta Travel Tips & Guide

How to Get Tickets?

You can obtain entrance tickets to each attraction by purchasing it from ticket lobby on the spot, or by online booking if you prefer a much more convenient and time-saving way. Though you don't really have to worry about the lineups since most of the time it only takes approximately 1-hour maximum.

How To Get Around?

Yogyakarta have its own Metro bus called TransYogyakarta. We highly recommend you to buy TransYogyakarta Pass if you travel using the public bus quite often during your visit. Some attractions are located near each others, such as Vredeburg Fort Museum and Malioboro Street that is reachable on foot. You can also take bicycle rickshaws for a fun ride around the city, though you'll have to be really good at haggling.

What Should I Wear?

Yogyakarta's weather is mostly hot and humid, so it's wiser to opt for light-weight clothes such as cotton T-Shirt or tank top paired with denim pants. Be aware that Javanese community is a conservative one, so it is better to avoid skimpy and skin-tight clothes especially if you're visiting sacred places such as the Kraton and the temples. Don't forget to wear the most comfortable walking shoes, especially if you're planning to explore from one attraction to another on foot.
