    1. Hi Lee! Singapore is a nice place. I have just visited your blog and saw that you have quite a few places planned for 2014. I am starting 2014 with a trip to Borobudur. I see from your picture that you have been there. Any recommendations?

      1. It takes around an hour to get from Yogyakarta to Borobudur by public transport (taxi is the only option as buses require at least 2 changes on the way). If you are planning to see the sunrise at Borobudur you may want to consider staying at the hotel near the temple complex.
