Yogyakarta 1 night
Day 1 Bali beach hotel/Yogyakarta: Transfer from your hotel to Denpasar airport for a flight to Yogyakarta. On arrival meet your guide and commence your sightseeing tour. Experience the constant bustle of Javanese life as you head for Borobudur Temple, approximately 90 minutes drive north. Dating from the 8th century, this huge Buddhist temple consists of six concentric outer terraces and three circular terraces above them. With its lush mountain backdrop this must surely rank among the world's most impressive sights. A visit is also included to the 9th century Hindu temple complex at Prambanan, which although largely in ruins, still retains fine contours and intricate stone carvings.
Day 2 Yogyakarta/Bali beach hotel: This morning enjoy an additional tour of the artistic city of Yogyakarta. Visit the Sultan's Palace, seat of Java's most powerful royal family, a factory producing Java's finest batik and a centre where the famous Wayang Kulit leather puppets are painstakingly crafted by hand. All too soon it's time to return to the airport for your return flight to Bali.
