29th January 2008 | By: Raf
This article is intended as a guidance to those who rarely or in first time visiting Purworejo City From Jakarta, many transport methods linked to Purworejo Regency.
Ticket is available in business and economic class which scheduled twice a day , every morning and every evening . Sawunggalih Utama ( Kutoarjo home based train ) and Taksaka (Yogyakarta home based train ) leaving from Gambir Station for business tickets , while economic ones departed thru Pasar Senen Station .Peak season usually when school holiday on July and Idhul Fitri holiday. Please be careful about seat availability when your travel plan is on that time.
After taking about 8 hour-beautiful journey , you must get off at Kutoarjo Station the main train station in the district. Kutoarjo welcomes you visiting other sub-districts such as : Purworejo , Bayan , Kemiri , Grabag , Pituruh , Bruno , Butuh , Ngombol , Gebang , Bener , Banyuurip , Bagelen , Kaligesing ,Purwodadi , Loano , etc.
You can take one of carrier which leaving for Yogyakarta, Solo , Magelang etc. But it needs more information must be drilled down if you are not familiar with trans –java road. Java has two main routes that are North Route and South Route in other side. Understand the difference before taking above method
For a simply method use a-Kutoarjo home based bus operator. P.O. Sumber Alam is an example. Their fleet departed thru Lebak Bulus, Cimone , Pulo Gadung , Kranji Bekasi , Ciawi Bogor. Please take a nearest distance from where you are. They offer either business or economic class tickets.
If you prefer like taking a night travel to a day , let the driver or co-driver to notice you whenever vehicle hits Kutoarjo in case you fall in asleep. Then you should get preparation because no more than fifteen minutes the vehicle will be parked at Purworejo bus station. Please speed up your getting-off , the bus stopped for about thirty minutes before leaving to Yogyakarta as a final destination. Now you can say “ Hello Purworejo..I am coming. Next, city transports will run you to a specific area you want to visit
By Driving a Car
This method possible you to organize time as you need. If driven by yourself please prepare a map, read more about last traffic situation. Avoid stopping at un-inhabited area or unusual for it. Suggested taking a rest at restaurant, fuel station, police post that easily found at a long the way of Jakarta – Purworejo. Fully pay attention on driving may be you will find yourroad crossed by rail way with insufficient protection.
But , it will be an advantage if you have a trusted-driver . Rental car company experience about this business , ask them to explain a safest trip to you .Slow down your speed whenever your eyes catch notes on banner “ Dawet Butuh “. It tells that you are entering to west bank boundaries of Purworejo District.Keep smiling because Purworejo’s starts to smile to you…..enjoy your ride…..
Fastest trip method certainly . It is enable you have breakfast in Cilandak , Meruya, Sunter , Kampung Melayu etc then have lunch in Purworejo. Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air, Adam Air are example of flight operators that reserve shuttle flight Jakarta – Yogyakarta. Travel agent will be pleasure to lend their hands when you need more detail of flight information. Forty five minutes fly , stewardess will alert you to tighten seat belt for landing at Adi Sucipto Airport of Yogyakarta . Just need on foot to arrival terminal while porter un-load your baggage from the craft. If no relation take you , immediately have a taxi for ninety minutes trip to west. Yes , Purworejo is 67 kms to west from Yogyakarta Never lost in sight of amazing panoramic view , whether padi or palawija planting at both side of the way. Finally Bagelen sub-district lets your entry without password to District of Purworejo.
Strange in ear have a trip by sea to this area . Nearest harbour is Tanjung Mas of Semarang which takes at least four hours by land to Purworejo. In fact the district has harbour in Ketawang beach called Pasir Puncu Harbour, but so far no commercial shipment sail there Have you ever watched parody film of Robin Hood entitled “ Men in tight “ ……?
He was back to UK from Middle East by swimming across the sea. I extremely not recommend you swimming across the sea from Tanjung Priok Harbour in Jakrata to Pasir Puncu Harbour. Otherwise you are well-trained for it .
