10 September 2017, 08.05 am, I departed from Soekarno–Hatta Airport Terminal 3 to Adisutjipto Airport, Yogyakarta. It was my very first experience, since I regularly come to Terminal 3 just to accompany Aji when he returned to the sites hehe.
@ Terminal 3
At around 10 am, I exited Adisutjipto Airport. Then, the first destination is Prambanan Temple. Believe it or not, I had never visited such temple before. Prambanan Temple is 9th-century Hindu temple. It is located approximately 17 kilometres northeast of Yogyakarta, on the border between Central Java and Yogyakarta.
The temple is the largest Hindu temple in Indonesia, also one of the biggest in Southeast Asia. The main building inside the complex has 47-metre-high. There were a total of 240 buildings in the complex. The building of the temples are characterized by their tall and pointed architecture, typical of Hindu architecture.

The next destination is Ratu Boko, an archaeological site about three kilometres south of Prambanan temple. The site covers 16 hectares. It’s estimated that Ratu Boko is a settlement site, even though its precise function remain unknown.

can you spot Prambanan Temple? | it will be utterly astonishing to witness sunset there
There are a lot of little temples around Ratu Boko : Ijo Temple, Kalasan Temple, Banyunibo Temple, Barong Temple, Sojiwan Temple. Also, Breccia Cliff Parks is pretty close. Unfortunately, I have limited time to explore the city at the time huhu.
Next, the third destination is sate klathak Pak Pong (on Jalan Imogiri Timur Km. 10, Bantul, Yogyakarta) for late lunch. It was my second visit. Frankly, I really want to taste sate klathak Pak Bari, but such place open only at night, unluckily I must head to Kebumen after Maghrib.

I will tell the story of my visit to Kebumen in the next post. Oyaa, at the time I brought cheese roll Wahyu Austin (on Perumahan Taman Cemara G-1, Ring Road Utara, Maguwoharjo, Sleman) and bakpia Kurnia Sari in milk flavors to Jakarta. Alhamdulillah eventually I can get the milk flavors, because those almost always run out~
