Indonesië - Borobudur
40 km from Yogyakarta is the temple of Borobudur.
A first restoration was successfully completed in 1911, but the temple of Borobudur is far from being saved. It was registered as World Heritage by UNESCO.
If you stay in Yogyakarta, I advise you to visit, via an agency, two sites (Borobudur and Prambanan) in one day. You have about 2 hours on each site. It is enough unless you are love of Buddhist art in which case it is better to rent a car and visit one temple by day.
We recommend the very seriously agency "Sosro Tour & Travel" in the Backpacker district of Sosrowijayan Wetan street (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). It also organizes tours of the Javanese volcanoes known if you don't want to organize yourself.
About two temples visit (Borobudur and Prambanan), the price in 2009 is 80.000/pers (transport by minibus + driver + small meals for lunch) + 2 tickets to the temples (100 000 Rp / pers / temple).
