Travelling from Bali to Jkt by train

Recommended Posts

excellent experience! they have high quality and fast trains like in Japan, Korea and Taiwan;

they have non stop trains Bali - Jakarta every 30 minutes

it takes a bit more than 4 hours for the 900+km trip

There are no trains in Bali.

 

I think there are trains in Java.

 

I have seen shopping places in Bali where there were busloads of Javanese tourists. Busloads as in that is how they were traveling.

 

I have seen Java from the far west side of Bali. I saw the wires carrying the electricity. But where is the switch?

 

I don't know anything more. Sorry.

JKT - Bali :

 

Jakarta - Surabaya by the north (9 hours) or south (12 hours) route.

 

Surabaya - Banyuwangi by non-aircond train (8 hours)

 

Banyuwangi - Gilimanuk in west Bali by ferry (30 minutes)

 

Gilimanuk - Denpasar by bus (1 hour)

 

Denpasar - Legian/Kuta/Seminyak by taxi (30 minutes)

I am told that the Jakarta-Bandung road is much better now, but when I was there it was hideous - winding mountain road with sheer drops into jungle and lots of blind corners. When I asked my GFs brother if the road improved for the long drive to Surabaya, he replied that it was worse - more trucks and miles of mountainous terrain. I can not think of anything scarier than enduring 9 hours on a bus in those conditions - good luck, you will need it.
