The trip starts very early at 3:00 am. The Indoneo team will pick you up at a hotel or place that has been agreed upon beforehand and you will be heading to Borobudur Temple.

When arriving at the Borobudur Temple area there will be hot fresh coffee waiting for you. Once energetised properly, you will be ready to climb to the top of this breathtaking temple and greet the rising sun. Just take your time there (and some pics!). The breakfast is waiting for you to be served in the local restaurant nearby. After the meal we will return to Yogyakarta to visit another gem - the Prambanan Temple.

Prambanan Temple is the largest Hindu temples complex in Indonesia and the highest temple in Asia.

Your guide will tell you the rest of this story...

We will take a lunch break and continue shopping for souvenirs in busy Mailoboro street in the center of Yogyakarta.

The next trip will be to the Ratu Boko - a palace and temple of Roro Jongrang's father (yes, the princess from the the legend of Sewu Temple). Located on a hill with of approximately 196m above the sea level, Ratu Boko is very one of the best places to enjoy the sunset.
