Borobudur - 10 Aug 2017 Borobodur is undoubtedly the icon of Yogyakarta. This is probably the most visited tourist destination in the city, aside from Batik shopping centers. This historical site can be reached by private transport from the city proper. A little hiking is needed too so prepare to wear sneakers and comfortable clothing. To save money, it is best to let someone arrange your transport from the city and back. The Borobudur sunrise is the best in this part of the world. If you intend to stay long, prepare a brim hat and don't forget to put on sunscreen and sunglasses.
