3D2N Visit coming from Bali - looking for help with trip

Hi

We will be staying in Bali and coming over to see Borobudur and Prambanan mostly but also to take in some other sights that we can while we are here. We generally want to make it easy on ourselves to see the best places but without working too hard. Definitely more into nice quiet places to stay then anywhere too busy. It looks like we would arrive in 1st day about 11 and leave on 3rd day about 4pm. Any suggestions on an itinerary that would be good for us? The more I look on net I see more places to visit but not sure what is good fit. We are thinking to rent a car and driver each day for the three days

Thanks in Avance

What kind of place that you want to visit? Nature, culture, shopping, adventure? A lot of things to do in Yogyakarta so it's better to specify your preferences.

Jogja can be a very easy place to visit...it's the number 2 tourist destination in Indonesia after Bali, and has great tourist infrastructure.

What hotel are you staying at, or if you have not booked yet, what is your budget?

For the most convenient trip, you can have your hotel arrange your touring..it will be seamless and easy... or you can do it yourself to save some money.

Hi

Thanks for your question.

We are interested in Borobudur and Prambanan of course and other temples, and generally heritage sites and scenic/natural places that we can appreciate without too much hard walking. Not really into shopping. We would like to see things that are different to Bali.

Yes, well, Borobudur and Prambanan really fit the bill! Also the gamelan music and dance are different but vaguely similar..you can watch the Ramayana performance at Prambanan in the evening. See the Kraton, perhaps Merapi, your 3D2N will just about cover the time you need for the highlights.

Where are you staying?

Hi Irishbizbloke,

For heritage sites other than Prambanan and Borobudur:

1. Sultan's palace and its surroundings: Taman Sari, Sonobudoyo Museum (they have leather puppet show every night)

2. Around Borobudur: Mendut temple & Pawon temple. You can also see Borobudur sunrise from Thuk Setumbu hill. You'll see Borobudur from the distance during sunrise without having to pay expensive entrance fee

3. Around Prambanan: Prambanan temple complex, Ratu Boko ruins

Scenery: Merapi from lookout point (Kaliadem), villages around Borobudur, beaches south of Yogyakarta.

See www.yogyes.com, they have comprehensive website about Yogyakarta.
