One day in Borobudur

We took the plane at 9:45 from Kuala Lumpur and arrived to Yogyakarta at 11:30 (there is one hour time difference between KL and Yogyakarta) to start our trip in Indonesia.

After filling the forms and paying 35$ for the visa, we have been caught by a taxi driver to take us to Borobudur. They asked 325000 IDR and we made it down to 300000 IDR (~20€). First I wanted ask to another companies but it was too hot and we were tired so we just accepted it.

Borobudur is not very far away from Yogyakarta (around 40km) but there is a huge traffic so it took us around one hour 15 minutes to get to our hotel.

We stayed in Graharu Boutique Hotel which 2.4 km away from Borobudur Temple. Even though it is a bit far away from the center, it was very nice to stay in a village where you pass by everyone smiles at you and says “Hello” :) Also it has a very nice garden and people work there are just fantastic.
