Yogyakarta city is found on the island of Java, about 400kms to the southeast of Jakarta. It is a city within the semi-autonomous region of Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta (DIY), literally the "Yogyakarta Special Region", which is also one of Indonesia’s 32 provinces. This special status is thanks to the Sultanate of Hamengkubuwono, which has ruled the area since 1755 and steered the state through difficult times of occupation and revolution.
Yogyakarta is one of the foremost cultural centers of Indonesia. This city was the seat of power that produced the magnificent temples of Borobudur and Prambanan in the 8th and 9th century and the powerful Mataram kingdom of the 16th and 17th century. From natural wonders, local art and traditions, examples of Javanese heritage to delicious culinary delights, Yogya is a city with numerous attractions. This is why Yogya is the second most visited destination in Indonesia after Bali.

HOW TO REACH THE VENUE
Yogyakarta's Adisucipto International Airport, 8km east of town, is a small but busy mostly-domestic hub. There are frequent (every two hour) connections on Garuda, the national airline, to Jakarta (50 minutes) and 2-3 times a day (60min) to Denpasar, while other domestic airlines service both Jakarta and Denpasar, as well as major cities in Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi. For international services, AirAsia connects Yogyakarta to both Kuala Lumpur and Singapore while Malaysia Airlines flies between Yogyakarta and Kuala Lumpur. Silkair and Tigerair also fly from Singapore.
Adisucipto International Airport is 15km far away from the venue Hotel Phoenix. The simplest way is to use a taxi service to go to the venue Hotel Phoenix directly. There are many different taxi companies operate at Adisucipto Airport, but we recommend you to use the official metered taxis that have a sticker Yogyakarta Adisucipto Airport, which is a taxi Rajawali. You will pay directly at the taxi counter (not to the driver). From the airport, it takes about 15km to the venue Hotel Phoenix. Go to the city center heading straight on to Jalan Jendral Sudirman from Jalan Solo. The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta is near the Tugu Monument.
