FROM BANYUWANGI TO YOGYAKARTA BY TRAIN
The only train head directly to Yogyakarta from Banyuwangi is economic train named Sritanjung, by paying IDR 100.000/person you will get shared seat in the air conditioning wagon. It will leave Banyuwangi at 6.45 am and take around 12 hours travel to Yogyakarta, approximately you will arrive at 9 pm in the night. For your attention, this train will stop at Lempuyangan Train station. It is a station far enough from city centre (Malioboro area), you need to arrange transportation to reach the city centre. Cabs are the easiest transport kind that easily to find at the station. Motorbike hire (ojek) could take you by paying more expensive than normal rate due to late night. It will be better if you have booked your accommodation the day before if you do not want to sleep on the side road due to the train arrive late night.
Attention : SRITANJUNG train could be reached from 2 different train stations in Banyuwangi namely Banyuwangi Baru Station at 06.00 am and Karangasem Train Station at 6.45 am.
Hassle : This train will take last stop at LEMPUYANGAN station in Yogyakarta, it locate further from the city center about 30 minutes drive to reach the heart of Yogyakarta.
Tips : As this is the only train to Yogyakarta and become favorite train, it would be better if you buy your train ticket in advance.You will arrive Yogyakarta quite late evening, please set a pick up from your hotel to the station for less hassle.
