Travel Tips

Of course! A trip to the cultural city of Yogyakarta, Prambanan (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the trendy town of Solo promises to be unique and enjoyable.

Best Time to Visit:
The best time to visit these destinations is during the dry season from April to October. This period will allow you to fully enjoy your site visits.

Route and Accessibility:
Yogyakarta and Solo are approximately an hour apart by train. To get to Prambanan temple, you can hire a local taxi or take a bus from Yogyakarta which will take around 30 minutes.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
These locations are not at high altitudes so acclimatization isn't an issue. They are all more or less at sea level.

Accommodation and Booking:
Both Solo and Yogyakarta have a range of accommodations from luxury hotels to budget guesthouses. Booking in advance is recommended during peak tourist season and public holidays.

Clothing and Essentials:
Consider packing lightweight, breathable clothing due to the warm, tropical climate. Sunscreen, hat and sunglasses are advisable for the temple visit. Don't forget your camera to capture the breathtaking beauty of Prambanan temple.

Health and Safety:
Normal travel caution is advisable. Avoid drinking tap water and stick to bottled water to avoid potential stomach upsets. It's also wise to protect against mosquitos by using a repellant.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Indonesians appreciate respectful behavior. At the historical sites and temples, it’s important to dress modestly, covering shoulders and knees. While in temple compounds show respect for the local customs and do not climb onto the structures.
