There is one Buddhist shrine in Indonesia that I never got a chance to visit but seems impressive --- Borobudur.

I spent a few days in Siam Riep during which time I saw not only Angkor Wat but also the surrounding area. I met a few of the locals and was hanging out with them as they took me on their motorcycles throughout the entire area.

                    When you are in a predominate Buddhist land,
            you will see the people wearing Buddhist Amulets like this one.
