BROMO IJEN TOUR FROM YOGYAKARTA AND TRANSFER OUT TO BALI (3 DAYS 2NIGHTS)
There are 3 ways to reach Bromo from Yogyakarta; firstly, you can take a flight from Adisucipto International Airport in Yogyakarta to Juanda International Airport in Surabaya, the flight only take about an hour then drive from Surabaya to Mount Bromo with a private car for 3 hours. This is a very recommended way if you have very limited days in Indonesia. Secondly, you can take a train from Yogyakarta to Surabaya, the train’s cost is so much cheaper than an airplane but you need to stay on the train more than 4 hours then you will drive from Surabaya to Mount Bromo for about 3 hours, this way is highly recommended if you want to get experience about Indonesian’s train. Thirdly is take a private car from Yogyakarta to Mount Bromo, this is not recommended at all because the journey will take about 10 hours, even more, when you get a traffic. The last is taking a bus from Yogyakarta to Surabaya, this is the same like the third way where you will sit on the bus for 6 hours more and you must find a bus to Probolinggo about 4 hours drive, then upon your arrival in Probolinggo bus station, you have to find a minibus that will ride to Mount Bromo area, and this is totally not recommended for you, because you will waste your time so much and even you can get jacked by someone in a bus station.
