Home to the single largest Buddhist structure anywhere on earth, Borobudur is a mystical region that is almost impossibly beautiful, with emerald green rice paddies that stretch on for miles, swaying palm trees and soaring volcanic peaks. Quaint monasteries are scattered across the pretty countryside that are almost untouched by tourism and there are some lovely small villages in the countryside that, despite the annual influx of pilgrims to the region, have stayed true to their traditional way of life. It is the mesmerizing temple of Borobudur itself that continues to amaze and draw visitors to the region, and it’s especially popular at sunrise or sunset.
