A Quick Visit to Borobudur
The Borobudur temple complex in Indonesia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, had been on my travel wish list for years, and it moved up a little on that list every time I saw posts from there on Instagram. But Indonesia is a large, spread-out country, and the photos always made it look like it was in a remote jungle location, so I assumed that it wasn’t easy to get to.
When my 10-year-old and I were planning our around-the-world trip this past summer, the initial thought was to travel straight from Dubai to Bali. That’s when I finally did the research and figured out that we could add a day at Borobudur to our itinerary fairly easily. We then extended the overall trip by a day to fit it in.
The closest airport to Borobudur is Yogyakarta.
