Borobudur is arguably the most spectacular Buddhist temple in the world, dating back to 8th or 9th century.

The Borobudur stupa is a very big, proportioned, which is two hundred meters in size on a small carved hill. The sculpture represents a solar model of the universe. One can walk through five kilometers of open corridors. Then it leads to a small downhill through six square terrace and there circular ones. The symbol describes the state of nirvana. The stupa is ornamented with 2676 panels and Buddha statues that are 504 in number. This place is not only a shrine but also homage of the Buddha. The visitors start their journey from the base of the temple and move to the third level that is on the top were there are 72 statues of the Buddha and the main monument.

Although it's located in the town of Magelang, the site is easily accessibe from Yogyakarta. Crowds can be huge so better to go for the sunrise tour. It's worth it even though you have to pay more. Location wise quite far from Yogya town around 1.5hrs. If you want to go for the sunrise tour be ready by 330am to travel there. By the time you reach Borobudur it would be around 5am.

An Order of Tapa with Rice



From the Spanish tapas served in humble plates and the many wines at the bar in the casual Tapa Room to the more formal ambience in The Providores, wherein delish and excellently prepared meals are served, you definitely won’t get wrong when dining at The Providores & Tapa Room.
Find out more about this London resto, wherein tapas start at £2.40 and main courses begin at £15, in this review posted on travel-based website, called Frommer’s:
Squid with papaya, pickled carrot, and pomelo (Asian citrus fruit) salad with tamarind caramel and coriander is a glorious explosion of sweet and sour tastes. Grilled scallops come with a dumpling of quinoa and crab, purée of celeriac and tomato sambal (chili-based sauce), and lotus crisps. Lunch is à la carte, but dinner is a set menu with the savory dishes starter-sized to encourage you to taste as many as possible. The main Providores restaurant is upstairs. The downstairs, low-key Tapa Room offers all-day dining, and is a perfect place for breakfast.
