Somebody asked us how much pocket money he needs to bring on a trip to Yogyakarta excluding airfare and hotel stay. During our January 2014 trip to Yogyakarta, we exchanged USD 150 to 1,815,000 IDR per person. (1 USD = 12,100 IDR) It was more than enough to cover all the airport taxes, transportation, entrance fees, food and souvenirs.
Here is the 4-day Yogyakarta itinerary that one of my great travel buddies created.
