D1

Join Yogyakarta

On arrival Yogjakarta, you will be met at the airport and transferred to our group hotel. Situated almost exactly halfway along the length of Java, in an area considered to be the heartland of the Javanese, Yogyakarta is home to some of the island’s oldest traditions and blessed with a rich, fertile soil from the volcanic ash. It is the cultural capital of Java, with a real mixture of cultural influences, including Hindu and Buddhist temples, dating from the 8th century, Islamic Palaces from the 18th century and Dutch colonial architecture. A group meeting will be held in the hotel lobby where you will meet your guide. Dinner tonight is at the hotel.

Overnight: Hotel

Borobudur

In the morning, we explore the city by car and discover the city of Jogjakarta. We start with a visit to the Kraton. This walled compound is the heart of the old part of the city and once the palace of Yogyakarta’s sultans. Also, we will visit the ruins of Taman Sari, the Water Palace, which was a pleasure park for the sultans. Yogyakarta is also a center for craft markets, batik textiles and artist studios, which you can visit depending on your interests. Malioboro Street is a great area to do some last minute shopping. Afterward we will visit Brobudur temple, a splendid ancient Hindu monument – the world’s largest Buddhist monument and the largest man-made structure in the southern hemisphere.

A UNESCO World Heritage site, Borobudur predates Angkor Wat by 300 years and Notre Dame by 200 years. Rediscovered in 1815, it has been excavated and returned to its original glory. The stone relief panels offer a clear glimpse into Buddhist doctrine and Javanese life 1,000 years ago.
