advice for travelling during Eid

Hi

I`m planning on flying from Bali to Yogjakarta on 9 Aug and then taking the train on 15th to Jakarta to catch a plane on the 16th out, could anyone advise just how possible/impossible the above train would be and how mannic Yogjakarta will be during this period?

I have not booked accomodation yet either...

Thanks in advance

Hi sashelz,

I checked for you on this website of the Indonesian railways:

https://tiket.kereta-api.co.id/?#reservasi

All seats on the trains from Yogya to Jakarta on Augst 15th are already sold out.

According to this website:

http://www.tiket2.com/

plane tickets are still available, but the prices are much higher than usual.

I think you will be able to find accommodation in Yogya, there is so much to choose from.

Theo

Yogyakarta is one of the main destination during Idul Fitri so it will be packed. Flying to Jakarta is your only choice but you have to book as soon as possible.
