We will arrive at Borobudur temple before the sunrise. Prepare yourself for an amazing scenery with many faces of Buddha enlightened with the lights. Feel the calm breeze in this peaceful morning.
Borobudur is the largest Buddhist monument in the world and one of the seven wonders. After the sunrise, we will tour the temple, observing the hundreds and centuries-old Buddha statues and observing how dozens of Buddhists come to preach from all over the world. Historically, it was made during the relatively brief Shailendra dynasty of Central Java between 778 and 856 BC. It is under constant restoration due to the breaks that the tremors of the neighboring Merapi volcano have produced during its history.
Lastly, we will go towards Prambanan Temple, the temple of Hinduists and classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1991. This temple was completed around the year 856 to commemorate the return of Shailendra dynasty of Central Java. Take your time to enjoy each carving on the rocks and feel the spirituality that each of the perched stones gives off in this set of more than 200 Hinduist smaller temples. They are dedicated to the Trimurti, the expression of God as the Creator, the Preserver and the destroyer. After this day that you will never forget, we will take you back to your hotel.

Our favourite time for travel in Indonesia is between April to October, although Indonesia is a great year-round destination, offering memorable experiences for all kinds of adventures. July to August are the peak summer months.
In West to Central part of the weather is delightfully warm and it’s a popular time for travellers to visit for holidays, whilst if you wish to travel from October to April, the Eastern part Indonesia, like Banda and Raja Ampat, would be the best option.
If you wish to have a relaxing journey in Indonesia with less crowds, the shoulder months of April to June and September to October are ideal and slightly more economic. If you must travel in ‘high season’ but want to avoid the crowd, worry not, there are numbered of unbeaten track in Indonesia ready to be explored.
