Hi I'm planning to go on a backpack trip to Borobudur with my friends on my birthday. Question. How do we get to Borobudur from Bali(by land)? Or better yet, how do we get straight there from the Philippines? Is there an international airport in Yogyakarta? If yes, how do we get there(temples) from the airport/point of arrival? Also, are there any cheap hostels we can stay in near the location? Regarding the temple tour, i'm not sure if we want a tour guide because we kinda just want to explore the temples by ourselves but I'm pretty sure we need someone who can give us directions from one spot to another. Is there anyway we can work on that? if yes, how? we plan to tour all three temples(borobudur, rato boku(?) and prambaanan) I wonder how many days we can do that for? Also, i'd like to know how much the entrance fees(we're students) are per pax. and are there any pub streets we can go to chill and grab a drink after a long day tour, just near the location? I really hope you guys can help me with this
Btw were planning to go to Bali too. Is it better if we just go straight to Bali then Borobudur or should we go to Borobudur first then Bali? What transpo should we ride to Borobudur if ever we decide to go to Bali first/vice versa? We plan to travel by land. is that possible? if so, how many hours would that take us and how? i'd love it if you guys can provide the estimate fare too :D
also, is there anyway we can avail the sunrise tour(borobudur) without checking-in in a hotel? we're just a bunch of backpackers on a budget so we really cant afford to check in any expensive hotel just to avail the sunrise tour. for how much would that possibly be?
lastly, since we plan to go to Bali too, any suggestions on which attractions to go to? we havent planned/researched on that yet since we really dont have any idea where to go once we step foot in Bali. Thanks!
Hope to hear from you guys soon!
