Have you ever asked the same thing before come to Jogja? Actually it’s so sad to share you this before your visit to Jogja, but in otherwise hopefully it could help. Well…then here the answer.
Unlike in Bali, only few people who can speak English in Jogja city. Not all of drivers or waiters could speak English as well. So it will be difficult for you -who can’t speak Indonesian or Malay- to communicate what you want to driver or waiters, except in the fancy restaurant. If you are lucky, then you will get a cheap driver who can speak English to offer you a trip. But remember, cheap always has a reason.
- Public Transportation
Is there any public transportation?
