Traditional three-wheeled and pedal-powered cart, known as becak (pronounced beh-chak), which can be found in most part of Yogyakarta. Haggle furiously before getting into the becak. Be sure to determine whether the price is for a one-way or return (pulang) trip and if you want the driver to wait whilst you conduct your shopping or business. A ride from within the city to the Malioboro shopping precinct should not cost more than IDR20,000. There is also an ongoing trend where the motor-powered trishaw started to replacing the man-powered one. Likewise, there is an ongoing debate about its safetiness and legality. The fare might be more expensive, but it is surely faster and covering more areas. However, it is strongly recommended to use the man-powered trishaw to help the driver, as most of them are poor and old.
Traditional horse-pulled carts, known as andong, or dokar, wait for tourists outside hotspots like the train station, the Kraton and Mal Malioboro. Haggle furiously. The traditional route is from Jl. Malioboro to Keraton, and this is where you’ll find most andong. Usually, andong opt to take you to shop for fake Dagadu t-shirt in Ngasem area with hefty prices. Then, andong will take you back to your initial journey. The cost for one round trip for andong is IDR30,000. Usually they ask for IDR40,000 but they may settle for less. Andong can accommodate up to 5 adult passengers.
