Went there to see the sunrise, was a little more expensive (400k) but totally worth it, wasn't that crowded and the view was simply breathtaking. After 8 or 9 all the tourist arrive so you have plenty of time to take photos. They give you a light snack, until 9, tea/coffe + fried banana and sweet rice. They give you... More

of course, Borobodur is well known and a world attraction. We enjoyed it especially circling the different levels, watch the Ramayana reliefs (we had seen the ballet the day before and were aware of the relief stories) and climb up slowly until reaching the top. It is a magnetic place, and take time. Go early so it will not exhaust... More

This place was amazing. It was very wet when we were there. The rain dogged us for a while but it was the end of the monsoon season. The history that were informed of was so interesting as was the story of the restoration work as it was damaged. There was a lot of people there as it was the... More

We went to Borobudur temple to watch sunrise. Since we are local , we got to pay local price Rp270,000. But for foreigners, they have to pay Rp400,000 which may not be worth it if the weather is cloudy. The VIP entrance from manohara hotel saves me at least half an hour of walking from the main gate to the... More

Was there in June 2016 for the Sunrise Climb but it was too foggy that time. Nevertheless, the view from 8am onwards is SPECTACULAR! Felt spiritually healed after the visit. P/s: remember to do some homework on the local weather forecast beforehand to avoid disappointment! :)

So it a world heritage site so high entrance fee unless you have a kitas and enter with the locals. Get a guide and take your time. Fantastic C8 Buddhist stupa. Exquisite sculptural reliefs.

The temple is amazing. but i dont like the way people sell on the parking lot. they tend to insist... More

I was blown away but this incredible structure. The detail in the carvings was amazing. Our guide was able to tell us the history and story of the temple in great detail. The grounds are stunning. The view from the top of the temple is gorgeous. The one thing that was very disappointing about was they had elephants on the... More

This temple of stone with magnificent sculpture is worth to see. Man-made amazing temple. But time goes by, the sculptures and carves are not as good as before, you must see them as soon as you can before they completely faded. Bring sunblock, umbrella or hat and glasses during dry season. It will be a long walk, prepare yourself.
