The fertile plains surrounding Magalang have made it an agricultural hub over the years, while its nearby mountains, waterfalls, and other natural attractions offer plenty for the active tourist.

Where to stay in Magelang

While Magelang provides a good base to explore the surrounding area, accommodation options inside the city are limited and often basic. Instead, many guests choose to stay in nearby Borobudur, a half-hour drive from the city. Its world-famous Buddhist temple and location in the hills has made it a prime spot for luxury resorts. If you don't want to splurge on something too fancy, go for a local experience through one of the town's homestays.
