I am planning to fly to Jogja in the first week of June to visit Borobudur and Prambanan. I hope to be able to stay at the Princess Manohara Hotel (if room is available) and wonder if this is a good time of the year to visit both UNESCO World Heritage sites, re: weather wise and people wise (how busy it gets at this time of year)? Appreciate any relevant advice.
Is it ok to visit Borobudur during Vesak? Will it be really crowded or better to wait for another time?

Ada hotel atau losmen yg ramah di kota Blora? Kalau begitu, namanya? Tarifnya?
Hai teman-teman, Mohon informasi tentang hotel atau 'guest house' yg letaknya dekat Satyawacana Christian University Salatiga dengan harga yang bersaing. Dalam waktu dekat saya akan ke sana dalam rangka konferensi. Terima kasih, Andri
On our trip through Java we would like to see the Ambarawa livestock market. According our information this market takes place on 'pon' days. According to my information 24 July is such a 'pon' day. Is that correct? And will the traditional livestock market take place on 24 July in Ambarawa? I guess this is a 'morning' event (which time more precisely?). Thanks in advance for an answer! Wim
I don't find a website of Wisma Duta Homestay or an e-mail address. I would like to ask them for the availability of an A/C room and its rate and about how we eventually could book for a room there. We are a couple, aged 55/61 from the Netherlands. Many thanks in advance for help with this.
We are in the process of preparing our July/August visit to Java. One of our questions is: is the next programme/route feasable to be carried out in one day? After breakfast in Borobudur (no sunrise event, Borobudur temple complex being done in the day before) via Kepit and Wonosobo to Dieng plateau, visit Dieng plateau, then via Lake Telaga (short visit) - Kertek - Parakan - Temanggung - Kaloran - Bandungan/Salatiga; sleep in Salatiga or Bandungan or Ambarawa. The trip would be carried out with a car + driver. Many thanks in advance for a motivated reply!

Hi, I have just booked my flight to yogyakarta next week and is frantically looking for a hotel near Borobudur as most of them are already fully booked due to Vesak Day. An exception is Lotus Guesthouse, which i called up and the person in-charge said that they should have a room available for me on vesak day, but I just need to call back to confirm it a day before... My questions are: Is this the 'right' way of making a hotel reservation? with no formal reservations etc what if they don't have a room when i arrive? And can anyone enlighten me on the distance it is from Borobudur? Is it at walking distance? Thanks so much and hope to get some feedback from you kind souls pretty soon... :_)
I will be visiting Wonosobo in June this year. I have done many searches for hotels there and the same few keep coming up. I am looking for a nice hotel with western facilities for around 250000IDR or less. Also would like advice on things to do and see in and around the Wonosobo area. Many Thanks

Hi fellow travellers, Need your help for info on Ferry schedule to Karimun Jawa. Some sites cite Wednesday and Saturday. Others only mentioned Saturday. Appreciate also any info as to where I can make purchase of ferry tickets in advance. Thanks.
I'm planning to visit Borobudur temple over the Wesak weekend 8-11 May 2009 flying in from Jogjakarta. Can you recommend some hotels which also arrange for airport transfers ? I've checked Manohara Hotel but they are fully booked for that period.
