Candi Prambanan, Yogyakarta

Our 2015 year-end holiday, we managed to travel to the most beautiful temple in central Jawa, Candi Prambanan or Candi Rara Jonggrang (Candi means temple in English) and Borobudur in Jogyakarta. It is about 15 minutes' drive from Adisucipto International Airport to Prambanan.

Prambanan is a Hindu temple constructed in the 9th century. The architecture reminiscent of Angkor Wat.

This year (2015) is toughest year for all of us in Malaysia, as the Ringgit has depreciated so much ~ 35% to USD. I am so grateful that we still able to glue to our travel plan, and spend the little money and time to travel inside Asian, and had been to the sacred site, Angkor Wat and Borobudur.  

We went to Prambanan on Sunday, 2 hours drive from Borobudur (include traffic jam).  
The time that we arrived, around noon, the place is crowded with local peoples.

Notes to Travelers

i) We managed to get entrance ticket via travel agency through the help from the driver. Thus, we got 10% discount on the adult ticket.
