Bondowoso (Bondowoso, Bondowoso) is a small town in the Eastern part of the island of Java in Indonesia (Bondowoso on the map). It is an ancient city with rich history and colonial architecture, many interesting but little-known attractions. Among tourists it is known primarily as a starting or intermediate point for visiting the two most famous volcanoes on the island of Java: Ijen and Bromo.

But most often Bednovato used to visit Ijen as one of the two expensive this famous volcano and other attractions on the plateau Ijen passes through this town. This is the most convenient point if you are traveling from the West (Jakarta, Yogyakarta). In town you can find dozens of hotels and guesthouses with the basic facilities of a type only to sleep in, cafes, and travel agencies and private owners with plenty of offers to organize for you a tour in a jeep to the point of ascent to the crater of Ijen volcano.

Traditional tourist route through Bondowoso as follows:

  • Arrive mid afternoon and check in to the hotel
  • To find a suitable alternative tour to the volcano by jeep
  • Night to make the tour and trekking to Ijen
  • Back in the morning to leave the hotel and continue the journey further.

How to get to Bondowoso

Bondowoso is a little bit away from the main highways, so have to get here only with transfers by bus through the city of Probolinggo (Probolinggo), Situbondo (Situbondo), or Jember (Jember). Of these cities to Bondowoso sent only local suburban buses and direct flights from major tourist cities such as Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, no. Ideally, you should try to arrive in one of these cities early in the morning, or at least until noon, and then to have time to drive to Bondowoso on the bus, otherwise you can not manage and have to either spend the night here, or you can take a taxi. All the buses here go without a schedule for occupancy.

In Bondowoso all buses arrive at the bus station in the city centre (bus station on the map). Hence travel and minibus to Sempol village (25 000 rupees in 3 hours, go from morning until approximately 15:00 on occupancy). From Sempol to the beginning of the ascent to the Ijen another 10 kilometers and can be reached by motorcycle taxi for 50000 rupees.

  • Via Probolinggo

    On the bus to Probolinggo you can come from Denpasar, Malang, Jember, Surabaya, Jogjakarta (see more about Probolinggo and how to get there). The bus station here is called Bayuangga. She's notorious for traditional travel deals with transport, when foreigners instead of the bus bring on the fake station, travel agencies or "helpers" to sell bus tickets at double the price bypassing, and the like. Therefore, this route should be very carefully, and ideally to follow that will take you exactly to the station using the Navigator.

    On the train to Probolinggo can be reached from Surabaya (from Jakarta) or Banyuwangi (if you come from Bali). Railway station is located in the city centre and 8 kilometres from the bus station to the bus station Bayuangga, still need to get a taxi or motorcycle taxi, and in the afternoon you can take a taxi for 5000 rupees.

    When arrive at the bus station, looking for a minibus to Bondowoso, but try to avoid the help of outsiders who offer themselves. Directly contact the drivers to find the right bus. Buses depart until about lunch, on the road for 2 and a half hours, cost from 35 000 rupees.

  • Through Jember

    In Jember is the nearest railway station so if you prefer the train, it is best to go here. In Jember trains arrive from Surabaya and Banyuwangi. From Surabaya train goes 3.5-4 hours, costs 56,000 rupees. Trains on this route a lot, at least 10 daily. Read more about trains in Indonesia, how and where to buy tickets and check the schedule here.

    From Jember next step is to take a taxi to the bus station Arjasa (8 kilometers), and there take a bus to Situbondo (Situbondo), which passes through Bondowoso in 1 hour, cost about 10,000 rupees.

  • Through Situbondo

    Through Situbondo (Situbondo) can be reached if you are coming from outside Bali. But if you are coming here to climb the volcano, much sense in this, as it is better to get to Idzhena through Banyuwangi, which is located on the way to Situbondo.

    If you still decide to get through Situbondo, there is a bus station can be reached by bus in 10 000 rupees, in 1 hour.

On the island of Bali not so much exotic fruits, especially during their off-season ripening, and the prices are quite high. How do local justify such a high price: the island is small and there is almost nothing growing and all imported, so expensive. But I am inclined to them a little do not trust and think that high prices probably because of the desire to earn more money. If you search well away from the tourist places on the stalls and markets, you can find cheaper, but still prices are higher than in Thailand. For example, in may, I failed to find in Bali mango cheaper than 40000 rupees per kilogram, which is about 175 rubles, in Turkestan take even more expensive. And in Bangkok, at the same time in the supermarket and on the street local mango is from 25 baht per kilogram, which is 50 rubles. ...

Hi all. When I was going to go to Bali a lot, watched and read and wondered about the food. You can eat food for local or not? In the end I went to the local market and together with the residents ate. Was very tasty and not expensive. With stomachs too, all was well.

Bali 2019, just struck us with its beauty. For the first time in Bali, we never have been. But in this journey through Bali, we have experienced off the island and filmed a huge number of interesting places. A separate line of this Bali trip was the waterfalls. Every waterfall in Bali is unique and not like the rest. Nature, which is simply beyond words.
In this issue, we decided to go to the waterfalls of Bali near Ubud. Who did not know, Ubud is the center of Bali island, around which a great number of waterfalls, jungles, monkeys, temples and everything you need for relaxation and tranquility.
First visited the falls Tucked Cheung. A very beautiful place. Made my way to him through the gorge, under a light rain, but when he went away from there in the pouring rain Balinese! On the second waterfall came all wet and it was a real adventure! In the pouring rain, with umbrellas, four tourists going to the falls. The sight of something else! In General, see, don't forget to put the huskies, subscribe to the channel and be sure to write a review about the walk to the waterfall with umbrellas))))))
Of course, where do without food. Food in Bali is different, but in this issue, we dabble a bit with the oysters and that's a real buzz.
