Airports

The largest Indonesian islands each have one or more international airports.

Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) in Jakarta is the biggest airport in Indonesia and a major gateway into the country. Also on Java are: Adisumarmo International Airport in Solo, Central Java; Juanda International Airport in Surabaya, East Java; Achmad Yani International Airport in Semarang, Central Java; and Adisucipto International Airport in Yogyakarta.

There is an airport on Kalimantan and two on Sumatra. Bali, which is part of the Nusa Tenggara islands, offers the Ngurah Rai International Airport as its gateway. The national air carrier is Indonesia Airlines, with flights to more than 70 cities in neighbouring countries as well as connections to destinations in the rest of the world.

Indonesia’s international airports are contemporary and offer full facilities including business centres, duty-free shops, restaurants, snack bars, nurseries, and much more. You’ll easily find bureaux de change, tourist information, ground transport into the cities, hotel reservation booths, and parking.Visit this website for further information about Bali Airport Taxi Transfer Service

Jakarta’s airport has two terminals and is located 20kms northwest of the city centre. A shuttle bus provides transfer between the domestic and international terminals. There is short-term and overnight parking at each of the terminals, which can be reached on foot from the terminals.

DAMRI shuttle bus route runs from the airport to Rawamangun, Blok M/Kebayoran, Gambir, Bekasi, Depok and Bogor, with the full route taking an hour or more. Alternatively, you can book a taxi in Arrivals for the 45-minute journey into the city.

Terminal 1 contains banks, a bureau de change and a post office; while Terminal 2 has banks, bureau de change facilities and ATMs, a post box and 24-hour telecommunications services. There are plenty of places to eat and shop in both terminals, including gift, duty-free and book shops. Disabled passengers are catered for with special toilets and lifts.

Public Transport

Within the country, transport is easiest by air, as the nation is comprised of so many islands. Alternatively, you can travel by rail between some destinations, with business and economy class trains available.

When in a city, it’s possible to get around by becak, also known as pedi-cabs and tri-shaws. It’s best to negotiate and bargain your fare before you get in. Most drivers don’t speak English so you should bring a map with you and know where you are going. Taxis are another mode of transport, although you’ll find they won’t lower their fares much for foreigners.Visit this website for further information about Bali Car Charter And Tour Guide Service

Getting around by bus is not recommended unless you are a seasoned traveller. There are fixed prices from stop to stop and it is a cheap mode of transport, but you may have problems getting to where you want to go if you can’t speak the local language. Small minivans following specific routes are a good choice if you can figure out where they are going. It’s best to make sure of the price before getting in and to know where you are going so you can tell the driver when to stop.Visit this website for further information about Public Transport In Bali
