The Prambanan Temple Complex is just 17 kilometers east of Yogyakarta City. Because of its convenient location, it has become a popular day trip destination for tourists exploring the island of Java. You can easily book a mini-bus tour to Prambanan from Yogyakarta, and book your hotel in the city as it has a vast selection of lodging facilities. Most of these tour itineraries also include a stop at Borobudur, the other prominent temple in the region. You can book the tour with your hotel, the Visitor Assistance Center or a small tour company, usually found on Malioboro Street. You may also purchase the entrance ticket onsite at the reception building at the entrance of the main square.
It is also very convenient to visit Prambanan via public transport. Yogyakarta’s extensive bus service called TransJogja has a direct route to Prambanan. This specific bus service is 1A, which stops at Malioboro Street. When you arrive via public bus the pedestrian street to the temple entrance is only about 400 meters from the terminal station. Take note that public buses are often full especially during rush hour. The first bus runs at 6 am.
