    Hi, would like to know how do you get to Borobodur from Prambanan? how long is the travel time? I will be arriving at the Jogja airport around 8.30 AM, and I plan to head straight to Prambanan and reach Borobodur before sunset, and probably stay in a hotel inside the site itself (hopefully I can wake up for the sunrise in Borobudur).\n\nDo you think my schedule is impossible?

    • Hey Amy, sorry for getting back to you so late, I forgot to mention that I went to both sites on different days. I think it should be possible to go ahead with your plan. I didn’t need that much time in Prambanan and you can use the rest of the day to travel to Borobodur to make sure you can get up for the sunrise. \n\n\nJust make sure you do the necessary research on the bus schedules. Lemme know how it went! :)
