Grab a selfie atop Borobodur


Often compared to Angkor Wat in Cambodia and Bagan in Myanmar, this 9th-century symmetrical temple spectacular is the beating heart of Javanese culture. You’ll have heard about how jaw-dropping it is long before you’ve even left the city. Whether you come in the early morning or in the late afternoon to climb its two million stone block steps, you’ll spend far longer exploring it than you’d planned. Stare in awe at its 432 carved Buddha heads, and you’ll soon learn why people say it pierces your soul.
