Although Yogyakarta is not the "cultural heart" the Lonely Plant promises, it is well worth basing yourself here to visit this amazing place. We booked a sunrise tour through Kresna Tours for a fraction of the price of a private tour and we went to a hill overlooking Borobudur to watch the sunrise before heading to then temple for a...

My husband and I visited Borobudur as a day trip from Yogyakarta. we took the 2B bus to the Jombur bus station in the north of the city (cost was 3600rp per person) and then transferred onto a bus to Borobudur (cost was 20 000rp per person). all in all, it took us about 2 hour each way. The temple... More

Although the entrance fee of 385.000 Rupiah for the sunrise experience is quite expensive it is worth the money. Only a few other tourists have also joined and we waiting in the dark for the sun to rise. Unfortunately it was misty and cloudy that day as it had rained during the night, but the atmosphere was still magical and... More

Chances are, this is one of the main reasons for visiting Yogyakarta and as such, you cannot afford to miss it while you're there. It was amazing and beautiful, however, as a few other reviewers advised the school kids can get overwhelming. I arrived around 9am and it seemed there were more school kids attempting to speak and interview you... More

This is a magic place. One of the most incredible Buddhist temple you can visit all over the world. Get the ticket for the dawn visit the day before and wake up early. The walk to the top is not hard but need some time. Than enjoy the sun. Amazing!!! Not to miss!

although it is one of the UNESCO heritage, compare with similar temple like Angkor, it is comparatively not so popular in my mind. however, after visited it, i can say that this place is even worth to visit. i visited the temple in early morning and waited for sunrise. It was wonderful experience. THe view was amazing. You could not... More

We went to the temple in 2 steps (probably a lot of people do it this way). First step they bring you at a beautiful sight a bit far away from the temple itself, there you can see the sunrise on Borobudur (take care to have some warm clothings there, it's a bit cold because it's around 4-5am) the view...

When in Java, be sure to visit this magnificent temple. We made an early morning organized tour, starting at four o'clock to get up to the mountain and enjoy the beautiful sunrise over the valley in which thid largest buddist temple in the world is situated. On the other side of the valley rises Mt. Merapi-an active vulcano. Behind the... More

We were visiting the tempel outside peak season and were among the first visitors that day around 6 am, so there weren't that meany people but I can only guess how crowded it can get closer to noon. The temple itself was really beautiful and offered some outstanding views from the top. There were even free guide service provided by... More

Such a marvelous place to visit. Be sure to book a tour at hotels, a sunrise tour would be around Rp 70,000 without breakfast and a combo tour to Prambanan would be at Rp 80,000. The entrance fee is quite costly for tourists at Rp 250,000 and a combo ticket with Prambanan would be at Rp 375,000. Locals would just... More
