Where We Be
For our first trip to Indonesia we focused on two places: Yogyakarta on the island
of Java (including Borobudur and Prambanan) and the next-door island of Bali.
We flew straight into Yogyakarta from Singapore. As this map shows, Borobudur
and Prambanan Temples as well as Mount Merapi are all close to Yogyakarta.
We flew into Denpasar and spent 10 days in Bali, split evenly between Legian Beach and Ubud.
Underlined are some of the key attractions we saw: Jatiluwih and Tegalalang rice terraces, and
the following five temples: Tanah Lot, Ulun Danu, Tirta Empul, Gunung Kawi, and Taman Ayun.
We saw the "best of the best," but as the map makes clear, we barely scratched the surface.
