Destination: Day 5 of 6. Yogyakarta (Borobudur and Prambanan Temples)

It’s our second to the last day in Yogyakarta and we just had to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the area. The first stop was Borobudur. IMG_2780 IMG_2791 IMG_2792 IMG_2798

I just had to have my photo taken. Thanks to Dana😀

Outside the temple grounds, I got to practice my haggling skills with the local sellers. Got a five bells half their initial prize and a pair of leather sandals for 50,000 rupiah. Still had to do better. I have my eyes on this particular bag at Malioboro. Tomorrow’s my last chance to get that bag. Must train well today.

Our group had lunch and then dozed almost the entire trip to Prambanan. There was a long line for touring the main temple. I opted to explore the smaller structures and the temple grounds putting the newly purchased sandals to the test. They were strong and comfortable.

Tip: If you’re a student, bring your school ID as it would give you a discounted rate for entrance in the temple grounds.IMG_2864 IMG_2865 IMG_2870 IMG_2804 IMG_2857 IMG_2858  IMG_2861 IMG_2862 IMG_2810 It was dark when our group left Prambanan. Other members of the group needed to rush to Malioboro to get souvenirs for friends and family back home. We, on the other hand, still have more time to shop tomorrow since our flight is in the evening😀
