Travelling from central Java to west Java by train is easy, comfortable and enjoyable. For our eight hour £18 journey from Yogyakarta to Bandung, we were lucky to have reclining seats with plenty of leg room in executive class. You could even make the seats turn round to make them face each other in groups of four.
The train passed through villages, towns, rice fields, jungle, up hills and over very rickety looking bridges. The scenery was beautiful and certainly made the journey go quickly.
Tip – take some food/snacks for the train, the only food options we could see were meaty pot noodles and meat & rice.
