Yogyakarta (commonly pronounced Jogjakarta or just Jogja) is a popular tourist destination on Java, Indonesia. The city is one of the oldest in Indonesia and has a great collection of monuments and old buildings. The highlight is the Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono's palace, also known as Kraton Ngayogyakarta.
Around 40 kilometres from Yogyakarta lies the Borobudur. The Borobudur is a giant Buddist temple complex in Central Java (Jawa Tengah), Indonesia. There is no written record of the construction and experts believe that it is most likely built between the 8th and 9th century during the Sailendra dynasty. The building sits on a mountain and has nine so-called stupas. The first 5 make up the piramidacal base of the structure, on top of that are 3 circular stupas and finally there is one big stupa on top of all the others. Around the 3 circular stupas are 72 open stupas with statues of Buddha inside. In the 10th of 11th century the temple was abandoned, and only rediscovered at the end of the 19th, after which the structure was cleared from the vegetation, and finally at the end of the 20th century it was restored with the help of the UNESCO. Near Borobudur is the Hindi Prambanan Temple, which is also on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Adisucipto International Airport (JOG) has a few international connections, including flights with Air Asia to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
All other flights are domestic, including those to Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya (all on Java), Balikpapan, Banjarmassin. Pontianak (all on Kalimantan), Denpasar (Bali) and Makassar (Sulawesi).
There are two main train stations in Yogyakarta, namely Stasiun Tugu (Tugu Train Station) and Lempuyangan Station. Depending on the type of class of train you are taking, you will have to get on and off on either one of these station. Tugu Station serves all Executive (best class) class and business (second class) class trains and Lempuyangan serves local connections and economy class from other cities. For reservations and schedule check the PT. KAI website.
There are two bus stations in Yogyakarta, namely Giwangan Bus Station and Jombor Bus Station. If you wanna go to Bandung, Surabaya, Surakarta and some place in East Java and West Java you should go to Giwangan Bus Station. But if you wanna go to Jakarta, Sumatra, Bali and Semarang, you should go to Jombor Bus Station.
This is the best thing to use if you want to get around Yogyakarta. Only 45 minutes to Prambanan Temple, or 1 hour to Borobudur Temple if you'd like to go to temple. 1 hour to Parangtritis Beach (you can also visit Depok Beach to find some sea food and Parangkusumo Beach for some beautifull view to take picture with sand desert, its all before you're in to Parangtritis Beach). Then, 2 hours to Baron Beach (You can also visit Kukup, Krakal, Sundak, Indrayanti, Poktunggal and also Siung Beach in a row), in the middle of your trip you can also visiting Sri Gethuk Waterfall or Pindul Cave (its all in a row)
Trans Jogja is the best public transport if you wanna go to Prambanan or whole city. Becak is the most tourist useful to enjoy the city or Dokar (Delman) but its quite expensive from Becak.
Yogyakarta is a small city, you can walk from one spot to another spot but dont forget to ask if you dont understand. Its healthy and cheaper way.
Another alternatife sollution if you'd like to around city. Using motorbike also a good sollution, many places rent motorbike for usually 50k/day.

As in other parts of Indonesia, staying connected with your mobile phone is amazingly easy. Almost all cell phone providers will sell prepaid unlocked sim cards, both for phones on GSM or CDMA. You just need to make sure that your phone is not bundled with the simcard in order for the Indonesian SIM Card to work. Buying the simcards is also very easy. There is street vendors that sell them everywhere and they can cost as cheap as Rp. 10,000. Most of these prepaid simcards will also be internet ready, you just have to check with your seller how to activate it and what kind of package you want.
There is virtually no more public pay phone in Indonesia so don't get calling cards. You can, however, go to a wartel (warung telepon). They are shops like an internet cafe but instead have public phones.
Pos Indonesia provides the postal service in Indonesia. Pos Indonesia is government-owned and offers services ranging from sending letters and packages to money transfers (usually to remote areas which have no bank branch/ATM nearby) and selling postcards and stamps.
It is recommended to send letters from a Pos Indonesia branch, not by putting it inside orange mailbox (called Bis Surat) in the roadside, because some of the mailboxes are in very bad condition and aren't checked regularly by Pos Indonesia. Opening times of post offices usually tend to follow general business hours: Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm (sometimes shorter hours on Fridays), Saturdays from 8:00am to 1:00pm, closed on Sundays. Bigger cities, tourist areas and central post offices tend to keep longer hours, into the evenings.
Sending a postcards, letter or parcel is relatively expensive, but fairly reliable. It takes several days at least to send it within Indonesia, at least a week internationally.
Private postal services based in Indonesia include CV Titipan Kilat (CV TIKI), Jalur Nugraha Ekaputra (JNE), Caraka, and RPX. There are also foreign postal services that have branches in Indonesia, including DHL, TNT, UPS, and FedEx.
