To visit Indonesia, including Bali island visa for citizens of Russia and CIS countries as a tourist or for a short business trip for a period of 30 days is required. For longer stays you need a visa in advance at the Consulate or on arrival.

Attention! On some "authoritative" sites and blogs, the Internet found the information that the citizens of Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and other CIS countries must obtain a visa on arrival because it does not have the right of visa-free entry. This false information, the citizens of all countries of the CIS can visit Indonesia juice for 30 days without a visa.

In 2009, all guests of Indonesia needs to leave fingerprints on the scanner and take a picture after getting the visa and to the passport control. Also, each guest of the country must complete a customs form BC2.2 and immigration card, forms which are issued on the plane, or can be borrowed from the Desk at the airport/port of arrival.

In Yogyakarta especially nothing to watch. From all that I looked at, and it's several museums, the Sultan's Palace, water castle, Fort, more or less I did not like the water castle, Taman Sari, since it is a fairly large attraction. And the Palace... Well, look, of course it is, but really there is nothing to watch, it is more local interesting. Generally, in Joke a lot of local tourists, Europeans more nemnogo.
Prambanan and Borobudur visited on a motorbike. Very much local, just like ants, all doing a selfie. Left a mixed impression. On the one hand, like such important attractions, famous all over the world, and on the other the price matches the ticket to Angkor for three days, and to do in Borobudur more than 30 minutes nothing. The same is true about the noise. Honestly, I was more interesting to look at other small churches in the surrounding area of Prambanan, than his.
Train tickets are definitely worth buying in advance. The price of the train is very high. In principle, I have a link with the trains already gave you where everything is, nothing has changed.
To Bromo traveled with the tour from Yogyakarta, so it was cheaper and the money and time, than to go by train and then connect with all sorts of grifters.
With the ferry to Bali as always: working around the clock, something worth about 5,000 rupees (do not remember exactly, then the guide will give pasapasa), goes often.
From Gilimanuk did not go to Kuta and Lavinna local bus. From there buses depart to Denpasar. Are in the occupancy, of course only during the day. But there be ready to divorce, will try to take five times more, you have to haggle. But before that we need to Wake up more to fend off the pile pestered with taks ...

In Yogyakarta on the main touristic street of Malioboro and Jalan Sosrowijayan many turagentsva, there and sold. I moved a few agentsvr bought at the tourist information centre - Price not remember exactly, but something in the region of 600 thousand rupees for the tour Bromo + Ijen. It includes two nights accommodation in guesthouses, transport (including jeep to Bromo), tour guide services. Entrance fee and meals extra. Tour options in General a lot of there there in a jeep, there are foot, separately Bromo, Ijen separately, with wusata in Goku or with landing on the jetty in Bali, or option bus to Denpasar. Tours are by bus and train. Those that train more. ...

Tell me, please, one day is enough for the exam?
Not dangerous on the roads on the bike?, for example, shows the route to these temples? ...
admin 9 June, 2018

Enough for one day, but honestly if you have the opportunity, I would suggest two days. Just because of the road and the heat will be tired in Borobudur, and the Prambanan inspection will not have to experience. In General, Borobudur is best visited at dawn, for this there are special tours. Or try at least to the opening to arrive, then even more less less local tourists and Chinese. After 10 hours already it's Packed like an ant hill. But keep in mind that the road will take at least 2 hours. Generally when you move a motorbike in Indonesia expect that will not cover more than 25 kilometers per hour, no matter how careful. And don't forget near Borobudur two more churches to see.
As for is it dangerous.... For me it was not dangerous, quietly went. But the traffic everywhere is pretty dense, even far from Yogyakarta, so be careful. The route will prompt any Navigator and a bunch of signs on the road, easy access.
Keep in mind that to visit both temples cheaper for a single ticket and not separate, on the two temples 40 dollars worth in rupees of course. This ticket is valid for two days, i.e. you can just split the visit to the temple on the day. For access to meet the dawn you need to pay extra. In General, almost all about Borobudur here already painted - about Prambanan here ...

It seems to me that the Asker is interested in a beach vacation (otherwise I would not from Indonesia chose Bali).
What about a beach holiday, I would choose Bali, because there is the ocean, the waves beautiful.
If I'm wrong and the Asker is interested in the attractions, I agree, Thailand is certainly better.
And if you are interested in nature is best for Indonesia as a whole - and there are volcanoes, jungles and coral. ...
