Review: Changi Lounge at Jewel Changi Airport, Singapore (Public Area/Landside)

Changi Lounge is a landside lounge, that means, it is outside the terminal. It's open for both departing and arriving passengers, as well as people who are not flying.

We went in with very low expectation because we knew the food selection is not great, and there's no free-flow alcoholic drinks. But we were pleasantly surprised with its pastries and shower room. Read my full review here:

How to Travel by Train Between Yogyakarta Airport and City

If you're traveling to Yogyakarta by flight, the best way to get to the city is definitely by the Airport Railink Train.

It costs only IDR 20k and it's much faster than taxi which costs about IDR 250k-300k. However, advance booking is a MUST because there's always a risk that tickets get sold out.

Here's my complete guide to riding Yogyakarta Airport Train.

Guide to Visiting Borobudur Temple – Largest Buddhist Temple in Indonesia

Borobudur Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in Indonesia. And it's probably one of the most beautiful temples I've ever visited.

Unfortunately, as of 2022, visitors are not allowed to climb up to the top of the temple. Visitors can only access the temple yard and the museum. Hopefully, the authority will resume the access to the temple soon.

In the meantime, if you're planning to go to Borobudur in the near future, here's my guide to visiting Candi Borobudur after the pandemic.
Guide to Visiting Mendut Temple – Buddhist Temple and Monastery 10-min from Borobudur

Mendut is one of the 3 monuments in the Borobudur Temple Compounds. I think Mendut Temple is such a hidden gem, it is so beautiful and the entrance fee is quite cheap.

It is just 10-min drive from Borobudur, however, most people who visit Borobudur often skip this temple. I'm so glad I didn't skip this temple.
