DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Yogyakarta

Arrive on the island of Java and explore the lively city of Yogyakarta on your own for the day. Consider making a trip to the outskirts of town to marvel at Borobudur, a 9th century Buddhist complex considered to be the largest Buddhist structure in the world. A famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, the ancient temple is sure to amaze and astound travellers with its unique architectural style, historical significance and beautiful volcanic backdrop. After, head back into town and check in at your hotel. We recommend staying at the luxurious Amanjiwo Hotel.

DAY 2: Yogyakarta

After breakfast, see Yogyakarta at your leisure for the day. We suggest visiting Prambanan, a complex made up of ornate and intricate Hindu temples. Built in the 10th century, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is still intact and adorned with art and murals depicting Hindu gods. Here, you can take a stroll through timeworn pathways and feel yourself go back through the ages as you experience ancient Indonesian history and culture.

DAY 3: Yogyakarta

Today, you’ll enjoy one last day in Yogyakarta. We recommend visiting one of Yogyakarta’s numerous bustling traditional markets for an unforgettable shopping experience.
