Enjoy a fascinating tour of the city of Yogyakarta, home to the beautiful Sultan Palace and its Water Castle. You'll also visit two of Indonesia's most impressive temples.

Itinerary

Choose from three different options for this tour:

Classic tour

After being picked up from your hotel at 7 am, you'll head to the magnificent Prambanan Temple. Comprising the remains of almost 250 temples dating back to the 9th century, this World Heritage Site is Indonesia's largest Hindu monument. Wander through this mythical complex and admire the many temples, ornately carved from volcanic rock.

You'll then head back to the city of Yogayakarta. See the enormous Kraton (palace), the residence of the Sultans of Yogyakarta, and the stunning Taman Sari Water Castle in its grounds. This complex of pools, gardens and even an underground mosque was the playground of the 18th century Sultan who commissioned it.

See the colourful parrots and elegant cages on sale at the famous bird market, where you can also buy fresh fruit and vegetables. You'll have free time here to enjoy lunch at a local spot

With renewed energy, you'll set off to Borobudur Temple. This incredible sacred site is the largest Buddhist temple in the world and one of Indonesia's most important cultural monuments. It's particularly enchanting at sunrise and sunset, offering spectacular views across the intricately engraved stonework and the idyllic countryside that surrounds it. 

The last stop on this unforgettable tour will be the Pawon and Mendut temples. Smaller than Prambanan and Borobudur but no less significant, admire the 10 foot (3 m) tall statue of Buddha amongst the other impressive architecture. Finally, you'll head back to Yogyakarta around 5 pm.

Tour + Sunrise at Borobudur

If you'd like to see the sun rise over Borobudur temple, the tour will start at 3:30 am and finish around 4:30 pm.

If you choose this option, you'll visit the same places as the classic tour, in reverse order.

Tour + Sunset at Borobudur

If you'd prefer to see Borobudur Temple at sunset, the tour will start at 8 am and finish at 8 pm. The route will be the same as the classic tour.
