Ini merupakan sub cerita ketika kami pergi ke Sawarna. Rute ini sengaja ditulis terpisah agar lebih mudah dilihat bagi kalian yang hanya ingin mengetahui bagaimana cara ke Sawarna dari Jakarta melalui Pelabuhan Ratu.

This is a sub story from our adventure to Sawarna. This route is intentionally written apart from the main story for you to be easier to read if you mainly want to know only the route to Sawarna via Pelabuhan Ratu / Ratu Bay.

  1. Capai lah Stasiun Bogor melalui berbagai moda transportasi yang ada. Kami menggunakan KRL / Commuter Line dari Palmerah ke Stasiun Bogor seharga 5000 rupiah
  2. Dari Stasiun Bogor, naik Angkot 03 warna hijau menuju Terminal Baranang Siang seharga 4000. Kalo supirnya ngotot, kasih aja 5000
  3. Di Terminal Baranang SIang, cari Bus MGI jurusan Bogor – P.Ratu. Ingat, cari Bus MGI ! Jangan cari bus merek lain. Untuk MGI AC seharga 50000. Untuk Non AC tentunya lebih murah tapi kemarin tidak terlihat yang Non AC. Lama perjalanan antara 3 – 4 jam. Paling sial 5-6 jam. (Kami sial banged kena 5 setengah jam)
  4. Sesampainya di P.Ratu, jika waktu masih menunjukkan pukul 12 atau 1 siang, cari ELP yang langsung ke Sawarna seharga 30rb. Jangan tertipu oleh Ojek yang disana. Kalo bingung, tolak semua tawaran ojek, lalu menyingkir ke toko penduduk sana dan tanya. Kalau ada kenalan di Sawarna, telp saja. Jika waktu sudah lewat pukul 12 atau 1. Ambil ELP jurusan Bayah, bilang turun di Simpang Ciawi. ELP ke Simpang Ciawi cuma 20rb. Di Simpang Ciawi, naik Ojek ke Sawarna seharga 40rb (harus jago nego). Kalo Anda mau Charter langsung dari P.Ratu ke Sawarna, pandai2 nego aja dan kalkulasi harga agar lebih murah daripada Anda singgah di Simpang Ciawi
  5. Sampai di Sawarna. Biasanya di turunin di depan Indomaret. Kalo mau naik Ojek ke penginapan, biasanya 10rb tergantung nego atau Anda bisa jalan sendiri ke penginapan
  1. Reach Bogor Train Station with any means of transportastion. We used Commuter Line to reach Bogor Train Station from Palmerah Station for IDR 5000
  2. From Bogor Train Station, hop on Angkot 03 with green colour to  Baranang Siang Bus Station for IDR 4000. If the driver demands more, give him total IDR 5000
  3. At Baranang Siang Bus Station, find MGI AC Bus Bogor – P.Ratu track. Remember to only find MGI Bus ! Don’t find others. MGI AC Bus costs IDR 50000. For Non AC is usually cheaper but we didn’t see any in that day. The trip to P.Ratu is about 3 – 4 hours. If you are really unlucky, it can be about 5 – 6 hours.
  4. Arriving in P.Ratu, if the clock only shows 12 pm or 1 pm, find ELP going directly to Sawarna for IDR 30000. Don’t be deceived by Ojek / Motobike. If you are confused, step aside and find local stores and ask  local residents but you have to shoo the Ojek first. You can also call your innkeeper in Sawarna to make sure.If clock is showing more than 1 pm, you have to catch ELP going to Bayah but you get off at Simpang Ciawi. It costs IDR 20000. At Simpang Ciawi, ride Ojek to Sawarna for IDR 40000 (you have to negotiate well). 
  5. Arrived in Sawarna, usually you will get off in from of Indomaret. To go to you inn you can either walk on foot or ride another Ojek.

Price is based on our trip to Sawarna on 28th November 2015
