Keep in mind the angkot drivers often tend to overcharge westerners for the ride.

Unique Suggestions: To avoid this unacceptable overcharging, you should tell the driver where you’re going before get on. And you should have exact change for the fare (Rp. 3,000) regardless of the distance and anything the drivers may tell you.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
