Today we left Pangandaran in the central province and caught a train to the eastern province of Java and on to Yogyakarta.
Yogyakarta is certainly a tourist "must see" destination and you could tell as soon as we arrived,
Firstly it was the first time we'd see any other foreigners, not to mention the western cafes, pizza places and gelato outlets !
However, Yogyakarta is the cultural heart of Java and Indonesia and its main attraction is Borobudur -
The largest Buddhist structure on earth ! It also has the largest Hindu temple in Java - Prambanan located close to the city too.
Once we arrived into Yogyakarta station, we quickly transferred to our hotel, where would be spending the next 3 nights -
A nice change from unpacking-packing every night, plus this hotel had a swimming pool and
The bonus was it was right outside our room door ! So we quickly sorted our stuff out and dived in from our room door way into the pool,
well nearly :-)
We had spent much of the day travelling so it was nice to have cool off in the pool,
Plus tomorrow was going to be full on, as we would be getting up around 4am for an early start in order to get to
Borobudur before the masses arrived, so we met the group for a briefing about tomorrow's itinerary and
went out for an early dinner and an early night.
