Flight advice -- transiting at Changi and/or extra day in Java

Jump to last reply

Singapore Air will mix/match a trip to Solo with Silk Air only 3 days a week -- so am trying to get a few ideas as options and what they entail. I'm backing into a reservation in Bali with a start date I can't adjust -- it basically gives me an extra day/night in Java.

Option 1 -- Use Singapore Air to fly to in via Solo (Silk Air), 3 nights at Amanjiwo, 1 night Yogya -- then fly to Denpasar - I know Amanjiwo is close enough to Yogya I don't need to do it this way -- but more than 3 nights at the Aman is really getting expensive -- plus it sounds like there might be things to do in Yogya for a day? Question, where to stay?

Option 2 -- Use Singapore Air to fly to Asia -- change at Changi for an airline that flies to Yogya rather than Solo (gets rid of extra day/night issue) -- Question -- I've never had to claim baggage at Changi and change it to a connecting flight as I've always used Sing Air partners -- is this complicated/time consuming?

What would you do? Take the extra day/night in Java in Yogya? Or do the plane change/luggage thing at Changi?

Thanks !!
