How To Get To Probolinggo - Yogyakarta By Train From Banyuwangi

Train to probolinggo surabaya yogyakarta from banyuwangi
Visiting Kawah Ijen and Mount Bromo: is a classic route to see a highlight of East Java. When you are in Bali, getting to Banyuwangi is a good start to explore East Java. Take a public bus from Ubung Bus Station in Bali to Gilimanuk Ferry Port, then continue by ferry to cross Java. Getting a public bus to Java does not need to book in advance, just go straight to the bus station and find the bus there. If you are lucky, you can get the bus directly. Taking a public bus could be the cheapest option but will take longer time than booking a private transfer from Bali (Click Here) as the bus will stop almost everywhere on the street to pick up passengers. Here we found a vlog video by @joshgoesslow who took a local bus from Ubung Bus Station To Gilimanuk Ferry Port.
