Wonderful boutique hotel located in near the city center and within walking distance to ATMs, money changers and restaurants. Comfortable rooms with a rainshower. Breakfast has Indonesian and western food and the coffee is superb. One of our group had a problem with an employee who "accidentally" took some money but it was returned.

Lunch was followed by a lengthy stroll of the makeup and perfume section where we tried every tester we could in the hope that ...
... we met a man from Holland who spends half the year there and the other half in Bali. Him and his girlfriend were on their way to Yogyakarta as well. We all got on the train around 9:40pm and left exactly at 10pm (that's a first for us). The train ride from Banyuwangi to Surabaya was about 6.5 hours and then we needed to wait until 7:30am for our next train. This one also left perfectly on time and the ride was about 4 hours. We made it ...
... is flanked by Brahma and Vishnu temples that are 33 meters high. These towering temples are very majestic, and the impact of them springing up out of nowhere as you approach them from a distance is powerful. There are 13 other smaller temples in the complex, and at one time there were an additional 224 small temples in concentric circles around the main complex. You can still see the ruined piles of the hundreds of small temples.
