Since the main train station is right in front of our hotel, we decide to get the tickets (Executive Class) for the ride to Jakarta tomorrow early on – our trip comes to an end. The it’s time to visit a pharmacy: I’m in desperate need of something for my sore throat: So I get something similar to Dobendan, but way stronger – my whole mouth gets numb taking one of these. Crazy.
That taken care of, we can get on our way to the UNESCO world heritage Borobudur. Compared to Prambanan you have a bit longer ride to get there: First, we get into the Trans Jogja Bus 2B (3000 IDR (0.21 USD)) to Jombor Bus Station.

From there, we have to ask for the ongoing bus: Most of the minibusses (Bemos) are quite similar to the slightly bigger Latin-American colectivos. Yet, not all of them got their destination written on them, so you cannot be sure where they are actually heading to – you also get approached by private drivers quite quickly, having a “private tour” for you in mind – also quite expensive of course .
