Borobodur World Heritage Site


Departing by coach from Semarang, guests will journey into the dramatic landscape of central Java en route to the incredible UNESCO World Heritage site of Borobudur, Indonesias single most visited attraction. Upon arrival, guests are sure to be simply amazed at this incredible man-made marvel that is utterly spectacular. The world's largest Buddhist monument, Borobudur was constructed between 778 and 856 and built with over two million cubic feet of stone. This massive building project exhausted five generations of central Java's population, yet within little more than a century of its completion, was mysteriously abandoned. A subsequent eruption of neighboring Mount Merapi completely covered the site in ash and it wasn't rediscovered until 1814. The painstaking excavation and restoration of Borobudur was accomplished at a cost of $25 million, but has given us today an unquestionably remarkable monument that stands as a symbol to an ancient and glorious heritage. Following your morning exploration of the temple, guests will be treated to a buffet lunch of Indonesian specialties, followed by a delightful performance by local entertainers before proceeding on to a silver factory for an informative Batik cloth presentation. Central Java is well known for its high quality silver ware and Batik cloth production and this tour stop will give you the time to browse for souvenirs to take home, or to take in a brief shadow puppet demonstration for the non-shoppers.
