Explore Yogyakarta

I had this conversation with a friend a year ago about temples and how I enjoyed my trip in Cambodia. She told me about her current trip in Yogyakarta and mentioned another set of interesting temples adjacent to the likes of Angkor Wat. That same night, I told myself that I want to see Borobodur and Prambanan myself. Getting there isn't as simple as booking a direct flight to Bali or Jakarta. But, once you're there, you get to visit the ancient Borobodur temple, which is older than the Angkor Wat, and the other famous temple, Prambanan.
