CITY TOUR AND BOROBUDUR TOUR (70 KM)
Breakfast at the hotel.
Start your day with a cultural tour through the city and observe the Sultan Palace or "Kraton", built in 1756 by Sri Sultan Hamengkubowono I and model of the traditional Javanese palace architecture. Over 25,000 people live within the greater Kraton compound named Taman Sari, which contains its market, shops, batik and silver industries, schools and mosques.
In the afternoon we will bring you to the world’s largest Buddhist monument, Borobudur, looming out of a patchwork of bottle-green paddies and swaying palmtops. This monument, after the decline of Buddhism and the shift of power to East Java, has been abandoned and forgotten for centuries. It is now considered one of the country's marvels. Climb up to the top and enjoy a magnificent view of the Menoreh Mountains. You will then visit the nearby temples such as Pawon Temple and Mendut Temple.
Lunch and dinner at own arrangement.
