Lava Good Temple

Borobudur temple complex
Mount Bromo's lava landscape
  • Leave Yogyakarta for temples in Borobudur, more temples in Prambanan, markets in Solo, colonial love in Malang, jeep rides up Mount Bromo and a lil’ culture in Ubud. All the good things. Borobodur is a super old temple. It was built 300 years before Angkor Wat and 400 years before any of Europe's great cathedrals. There's 504 Buddha statues here, but you might have to take our word for it.

    • Perhaps take an optional city tour by on a cycle rickshaw (becak) to explore the Sultan's Palace, markets and the batik and puppetry workshops of Yogya.
    • Enjoy free time to wander through the markets in Malioboro Street and check out the many cafes in town.

    Day 3 - Borobudur - Yogyakarta
