Customer Travel Tip: The Borobodur is definitely a must. Be aware that as a Western tourist, you'll probably be the tourist attraction for the local children who visit the Borobodur with for instance a school trip.

Disliked: Very crowded streets with little space for pedestrians (although I experienced the same in Jakarta).

Customer Travel Tip: Try some of the evening street food and don't get suckered in to buy overpriced batiks - most should cost between 50K and 500K for top quality ones on silk. There's a NOVA artisan village where the prices are reasonable and you can see people at work - with no pressure to purchase.

Liked: Amazing midnight street food

Disliked: People trying to rip you off, especially with Batiks and how everywhere seems to close at 1PM!
