Photo of the Day ~ Borobodur Bokeh ~ Balifornian Villas, Tours and Travel Blog

Hello and good morning!

I thought i'd share a photo today of one of our favorite places and a spot where it is near impossible to take a bad photograph.

Borobudur, located in Central Java in Indonesia
, is the largest and widely hailed as one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world.  It is about 42 km from Yogyakarta city one of the hippest spots in all of Indonesia. It's a college town with a rich history and tradition and is definitely worth a stop on your Indonesian itinerary.

Here is s shot featuring one of the 72 stupas looking out into the landscape on Java. Borobodur was built around 800 AD.  Thats about 300 years prior to Ankor Wat in Cambodia and way before any of the great cathedrals in Europe.

Borobodur is just one of the incredible sites you will see on Balifornian's Eco-Adventure Tour, The Photo Safari Tour and can be worked into any one of our iteneraries.

More becak drivers buy popular demand.  These guys were such a hit, you asked for more.  While this gentleman is not asleep, he can play a mean game of Peek-a-Boo.  We spotted these hard working fellas (really they are) taking a break from thier labor while on our Eco-Tourism Tour in Yogjakarta, Java, Indonesia.

The cougar is the largest of the small cats. It is placed in the subfamily Felinae, although its bulk characteristics are similar to those of the big cats in the subfamily Pantherinae.  The family Felidae is believed to have originated in Asia approximately 11 million years ago (wiki).
