Plants encroach on the ruins of a subterranean mosque in the Tamansari, a park built by the first Muslim sultan of Yogyakarta. The city was the royal capital of Java. The World Monument Fund and the people of Yogykarta are now working together to restore this treasure.
Love nature? You’ll feel right at home in Indonesia’s unspoiled treasure, Komodo National Park. Far from the wild nights of Bali, this quiet group of islands is home to white-sand beaches, lush hiking parks, and world-class snorkeling and diving. Check out my day trip to Komodo Island, Padar and Pink Beach!
