Aman, peace. Jiwo, soul. Who would’ve thought that two big picture words in all their vagueness could capture the heart of a place so well? The serenity in the air is palpable, undoubtedly enhanced by the constant views of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Borobudur – chants from there waft through the natural amphitheater – and the hill-and-paddie surroundings. If there’s room for more quiet contemplation, try the hike up Menoreh Hills for a silent meditation at the hilltop temple, or simply a sunset martini as you gaze over the rice fields.
