Can anyone suggest me the best temples to visit in Yogjakarta (there's too many), I only have two days there before I leave to Bandung.
And the best way to travel from Yogjakarta to Bandung ?

Thanks :)

hi,
i was in Yogja last week.

there is only one temple called Borobudur Buddhist temple built about 900 years ago

the best way is to fly, but you can take a bus or train too.

have a good trip

cheers

Thanks springwang & theexplorateur, will be sure to check it out. Borobudur is in top of my list :)

I'm planning to travel by train from yogja to bandung....found this website

Anyone knows if I can book the tics online? They have promo prices, which are cheaper.

prambanan and borobudur surely the main temples in Jogjakarta area. U can visit Kraton Kesultanan Jogja (the palace of Jogja Kingdom) for a glimpse of old javanese.

im not sure bout the online ticket reservation for the train. Make sure to check ur date of visit. In mid august there'll be a massive traffic in Indonesia due to Lebaran (Muslim holy days). The fares will raise up to 20-35 % from the normal fares.

i live in bdg..so any question bout bandung is welcome :)

go for Prambanan and Borobudur; preferred time 17.00, during midday it is very hot.
In Jogya also visit the water Palace.
