On Arrival

For those who arrives before April 13, we will be picking you up at the airport with poster announcement with bold capital typo! For those who arrives on April 13 and after, below is how you get to the Grand Surya Hotel where you will be staying. From there, you can just walk to Kedai Kebun Forum which is our main active space.

FROM ADI SUCIPTO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TO GRAND SURYA HOTEL If you are arriving with a domestic flight (either from Jakarta, Surabaya or Bandung), when you step out of the arrival gate, the official taxi stand will be on your right.

If you are arriving with international flight (either from Malaysia or Singapore), when you step out of the arrival gate, you have to turn left and walk straight ahead, passing through main entrance and all cafe stands.

It is a small stand with blue taxi sign on top, across Baskin Robbins. Request a cab there. Say that you are heading to Grand Surya Hotel, Jalan Suryodiningratan 42 B YK (about 200 meters west of Brongto Hotel). It is approximately 15,7 km (30 minutes) from the airport and it will cost you 70,000 IDR (approx. 7 USD).

We will have few of communal motorbikes available on site, and recommend the frequent users to rent their own, yes, be nice to ware helmet and have a driving licese.
  • walking is always the best way to discovery the place for a shorter distance

  • Detail info >>

Public transportation (bus and minibus) are almost impossible. For more convenient short stay in Yogyakarta, do travel with taxis as they are affordable and easy to get. It is rare to catch a cab on the street by waving your hand. It is much easier to just call the taxi company and have one sent to wherever you are.

It is great if your number is on here and functional. Please send your fullname in a text message to Mara +6289671801546 so that we have your mobile numbers.

For those who cannot use their SIM cards, within this package we’re giving you one for free. You’ll have to register them first, here’s how to do it:

To use them, of course you have got to buy credit. Please ask Mara for this voucher buying procedure. If you need to activate 3G for Internet, please buy the 100,000 IDR credit so that you don’t have to buy more until you leave.

For 3G use with your new SIM card, actually there are so many package options from the provider. But to keep things simple and easy, you can take our suggestion and pick this SUPER NGEBUT package (for 11GB use in the next 30 days after you activated it). This package will cost you 55.000 IDR (approx. 5,5 USD).

Follow these instructions to activate your 3G:

If what you need is a micro or nano SIM card, here’s a stencil to cut your cards to the desirable sizes. (get in contact with Ferial/Mera)


Free wireless Internet connection are almost everywhere (in restaurants, malls, cafes, etc) and of course available in all of our active venues (except the ecological fields). Due to the limited infrastructure, mostly all of those places only provide up to 3mbps download and upload.
