Bandung D1 # West Java – Indonesia

Today, we go to Bandung, because one of my relatives married and held a wedding party in there. We go there by train, because the flight from Yogyakarta to Bandung, only there’s 2 times, and it’s afternoon and evening. And we want to explore more of Bandung City, so we decided to go by Train which depart at night.

We take Turangga Train from Yogyakarta to Bandung.

There’s three train station at Yogyakarta and the biggest is Tugu Train Station. The other station is Lempuyangan Station and Maguwo Station.

We arrive at Tugu Station at 20:00. We park in the side part of Station. Because I bought via Travel Agent System, I have to change the voucher into the real ticket. At the station Entrance, there’s self-print computer for those who wants to print real ticket. You have to use your voucher boarding pass to print the ticket.

Enter your booking code into the machine, then they will self-print your ticket.

Then we proceed to the railway platform. Before we entering the platform, we have to check our indentity first.

The train to Bandung, located at platform 4 – 6. So we are waiting near there.

At 21:15, the Turangga Train is coming. Then we proceed to the train. Our seat located at 2nd carriage. So we go there. There’s not much passenger, because it’s not holiday season.

Our train is executive type, so we can turn around the seat. Time to sleep, because we will arrive at Bandung at 05:21.

Remember to bring your jacket, socks, and other things that can keep you warm. Because it’s super cold inside the train. Even they give you free banklets and pillow, but you still need to bring extra.

Good Night, see you in Bandung…
