Tourists, effective Feb 1, 2010, have to wear batik as they walk around Central Java’s famed Borobudur Temple. According to Purnomo Siswo Prasetyo, the chief executive of PT Taman Wisata Candi Borobudur, Prambanan and Ratu Boko, the company that manages the site, the ruling was made as locals are upset about tourists wearing skimpy clothing.

Visitors are also required to wear rubber sandals to avoid damage to the temple’s andesite stonework. The pilot project will be assessed and later expanded to the Prambanan — parts of which have reopened after a 2006 earthquake .

Hey Dana,

Have you considered adding this type of news/information style posts into our wiki travel guide instead? They are likely to be of much greater use there to people researching a destination than in the forum, where most people come to ask a detailed question.

In this case for example, this kind of information would make a great addition to the Borodubur guide :)
