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

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.

Map of Soho, London

 

Located in central London is the 39-guestroom hotel Dean Street Townhouse, which also features an all-day dining room that is aptly open to serve breakfast to dinner meals.

Furthermore, you’ll notice that this four-story building is full of dramatic Georgian structural design, which generally mirrors its remarkable history as a Gargoyle Club in the past. With king-size to super king-size beds waiting for you, you’d be pleased to know that the Dean Street Townhouse also allows you to stay in its hospitality area just in case you come too early and as your bedroom is being prepared.

Learn more about this London hotel, and find out how it is to experience an excellent English hospitality at London’s Dean Street House. Read this review excerpt published on travel site, Frommer’s:
 

Atmosphere and location are the draws here -- the price is that rooms are small even for central London. Units have four-poster beds, hand-painted wallpaper, and other retro-chic touches. The innovative all-day dining room with a weekly, changing menu of seasonal British food is a magnet for the post-theatre crowd, and lends evenings at the Townhouse a buzzy, cosmopolitan feel. Book well in advance -- this isn't the place for a last-minute bargain.

The Historic Castro Theatre in San Francisco

 

The exquisite Castro Theatre is recognized for its classic movie screenings and the pre-show playing of its Wurlitzer organ. Doesn’t matter which night of the week you wish to drop by as it features various movies every night, sometimes showing a maximum of two films. If you’re into bargain dramas and musical performances, then you’ll want to drop by during the holidays and on Sundays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Get more info on this San Francisco venue, and opt to have a relaxing night by watching the classics at the Castro Theatre. Here’s a review excerpt about it as published on the renowned travel site, Fodor’s:
 

Here's a classic way to join in the Castro community: grab some popcorn and catch a flick at this gorgeous, 1,500-seat art-deco theater; opened in 1922, it's the grandest of San Francisco's few remaining movie palaces… Before many shows the theater's pipe organ rises from the orchestra pit and an organist plays pop and movie tunes, usually ending with the Jeanette McDonald standard "San Francisco" (go ahead, sing along). The crowd can be enthusiastic and vocal, talking back to the screen as loudly as it talks to them. Classics such as Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? take on a whole new life, with the assembled beating the actors to the punch and fashioning even snappier comebacks for Elizabeth Taylor.

In the event that you find yourself in the pleasant village of Barton Mills to perhaps either get a glimpse of the holiday house of the renowned Alexander Fleming or join the biannual Scarecrow Festival held every July, then one accommodation that you ought to check out is the Olde Bull Inn.

While this countryside accommodation looks like the typical conventional coaching inn on the outside, a whole new story can be seen once you step foot inside. Expect a modern and hip touch to its interior with the handmade furniture draped in beautiful textiles and the floorboards rightfully reclaimed.

So get more info on The Olde Bull Inn in this quick hotel review excerpt written on the Daily Mail UK Travel by the hotel Inspector (“Hotel Review: A Hidden Gem as An Inspector Calls at The Olde Bull Inn, Mildenhall, Suffolk”).
 

The owners are very much present and very much hands on – in a wonderfully relaxed sort of way. It’s a Friday evening and everyone is smiling. The regulars seem chuffed that we’ve bothered to turn up. But I can assure you the pleasure is entirely ours… There are 14 rooms. Ours is a little on the small side, but it has atmosphere and the bed is comfy… There is a touch of kitsch going on, with bright colors and eccentric prints. And the building itself is bigger than you think. There’s a fancy restaurant in one part, which has its own entrance - although it doesn’t seem to be in action this evening… In the bar, specials are written on a board.
 

So contact us now for more tips on your next trip to Barton Mills!
