After coming back from South Korea on 6th, I flew back directly to Batam on 8th of April. Hehehehe . I went to Yogyakarta, Java island. This was my first time travelling within Indonesia actually hehehe.. Due to Lion Air delayed, some of my friends went a day earlier than me. Left me with 2 dudes haha..

CANDI BOROBUDUR


 During trips at Indonesia, unfortunately we don't have any subways within the country yet to travel by ourselves. To save the time consumed, we rent a van with a private driver to ride us.

Yeas it was more convenient and more practically because the journey that we visited were a little bit far of the town and very time consuming.


Group photos before went in to the Borobudur temple.
The world heritage buddhist temple that is located at Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia.


I am proud that, Borobudur is one of the UNESCO heritage site in INDONESIA.
#wonderfulIndonesia 


However, we visited there in the late morning and the crowds were insane.





The weather was unbearably hot with scorching sun


Got so much tan during the first location. As you can see that my face was burning red.



During the trip, I was mistakenly by local students as a foreigner kekekeke... Many of them asked for pictures lol ๐Ÿ˜น


Look at the crowds la.. couldn't find a proper place to take a instagram-worthy picture lol. 



But this scenery I saw, afar from the temple. After photoshopped away all the extra humans lol.

Later in the noon, the crowds was lesser.






When leaving the temple, there is a tourists market that sell many of the local products. Be it souveniers, accessories, clothings, batiks, toys , foods and etc


Key chains 


handmade necklaces



souveniers

PS: for the Tye dye shirts I bought few for my families and I love wearing them because the materials are really cooling, made of cotton/linen. However they shrank a little when first wash so buy bigger size and it looks nicer with baggy look.

CANDI PLAOSAN


Next location, Candi Plaosan.

It is a Buddhist temples located in Bugisan village of Central Java.

When I was there the crowds wasn't as large compared to Borobudur temple.

CANDI PRAMBANAN



Prambanan or Rara Jonggrang is a 9th-century Hindu temple compound in Central Java, Indonesia. It is also one of UNESCO world heritage sites in Indonesia.

RATU BOKO




Unlike the other huge heritage of Borobudur and Prambanan temples, some parts of the Ratu Boko's building was destroyed. Ratu Boko is not a temple but an ancient palace, an archaeological site known to modern Javanese. It probably served a religious purpose, as some kind of Hindu or Buddhist shrine in the Ratu Boko complex.


Happened to have some traditional music performances when we visited.



Us with beautiful sunset at the background, too bad it couldn't really be captured but we enjoyed it.
