The Indonesian word 'kantor' (office), derived from the Dutch word 'kantoor', means a place used by a company in which business or professional activities are conducted. It can be a room or even an high-rise building. Ok, but what does it have to do with Utiket? Well, Utiket has an office for four months now. It's located at Jalan Kaliurang km 5.8, Pandega Satya number 7 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
The location is very central and easy to reach by your own vehicle, bicycle or public transportation (from Giwangan bus station take line 7 to Gajah Mada University). Coming from the east out office is located on the left side of Northern Ring Road, just 100 meters before Kentungan crossroad (crossing Jl. Kaliurang and Ring Road).
It is a bit difficult if you come from the west (from Monjali heading east), as you would need to take a u-turn first which is about 2 km away. Or alternatively if you are coming from the east, at Kentungan crossroad, turn right, take the first alleyway on the left heading to Aryuka Hotel. Once you get to the Ring Road again, turn left. Our office is the green building 50 metres down the road.
We started with a simple office with 3 different rooms: a combined staff and guest room, an room for the manager and praying room . Although not big, our office is very useful though. It is not only for doing our daily jobs, it can be also as a transit place for you when visit Yogyakarta. For some coffee or just chatting with Utiket staff who you have only met in cyber world, we will definitely welcome you guys.
Although our office is new the news has spread already to some partners and customers who have already visited us. Please, if you are in Yogyakarta, don't hesitated and visit us and meet the people who are working every day to make this website even better and assist you in your travel needs.
