Pertama kali turun di stasiun Semarang Tawang, waktu itu untuk bisnis trip ke Semarang. Stasiun tidak terlalu besar. Terdapat beberapa pilihan toko makanan sehingga tidak bingung jika merasa lapar. Bagian luar stasiun terlihat kurang tertata rapi. Taksi yang tersedia, tidak terlalu banyak.

Clean train station... Many food and shops option. But if you arrive at night, you have to walking out quite far to get your gojek/grab available.

This train station has a room to buy tickets, restrooms, shops, but no information booth to ask questions. A security guard directed us to the station, which we passed unknowingly, to redeem our on-line vouchers for actual tickets. You have to pay to drop off...More
