A visit to this temple is a must-do for anyone visiting Yogyakarta, but be prepared for lots of local crowds, especially if you're visiting on a Saturday. A World Heritage site since 1991, this Buddhist temple really is a cultural icon for Indonesia. But also not to be missed is the Prambanan Hinddu temple and nearby lesser temples. Visit them... More

definitely the main attraction of Yogyakarta, maybe there has been so many reviews that it falls from number 1 attractions listing. Took the sunrise package, start travel at 4am and after 45min arrive at the entrance/resort and proceed to climb up. there is a torchlight provided, so it helps to guide the short walk to the temple and start the...

This was the reason I came to Yogyakarta. Visiting the temple means you need to be prepared especially if you arrive in the afternoon when it is extremely hot. Lots of water and an umbrella would be handy. But after you reach the top it all worth it.

Definitely worth a look. The assault of traders at the exit is a bit much though! Get plenty of fluids because it's hot!

One of the must see temples in the island of Java. This temple is majestic and enchanting. The symmetrical structure really amaze me considering that this structure was built for thousands of years. Only con is that the price to enter is too pricey for tourists. To save a little bit try to provide a student ID to get it... More

I visited Borobudur as a weekend trip from Jakarta, flying on Saturday morning, staying overnight at the Manohara Hotel in the grounds of the temple and returning Sunday via Prembanan temple, which is 15 minutes from the airport. The hotel arranged transport, which worked just fine despite traffic around Yogyakarta. The Garuda flights were right on time and superior in... More

Great place to visit. If you are a Student, bring your student ID to get a 50% discount. The temple provides separate fees for the entrance and a tour guide. Our temple guide spoke English well and gave lots of interesting points. Once you pay for the guide, you will be given a bottle of water and access to the... More

This 9th century temple should be part of any sightseeing tour in Indonesia. Its well managed and protected ,save for the hawkers inside the complex who hound you at every step. But one can empathise with them as they are trying hard to make a living. The structure is imposing and its hard to photograph the whole length of it.... More
