Borobudur is busy.. The guide we had was not 100 % accurate with the info provided. The worst part is the exit. The exit sign leads you through around 100 shops selling mediocre souveneirs and tasteless batik before you reach the real exit. It took a 20 minute walk to pass all these shops. Prambanan offers a better environment and... More

It was our wish to see the Sunrise from the Top of this beautiful temple. Luckily we got the booking of Sunrise program from Hotel Manohara smoothly with the help of a good friend. Although it was cloudy, but after the Sun up above the cloud, the orange sky was amazingly beautiful. The temple with Budha statues was really astonishing... More

This was a highlight of our trip to Indonesia. I'd strongly recommend hiring a guide so you understand a little about the temple. We organised the trip from the UK through Indoparadiso who were well organised and provided us with great communication. Our driver on the day was excellent - so helpful and spoke perfect English which meant we chatted... More

This is a must do on your travel picks. It is 250,000 for international travellers and only 30,000 IDR for locals which I fthink is a bit unfair. In today's world there are many wealthy Indonesians and just because you are Western I don't feel is a good reason for such a ridiculous difference in entry fee. 100,000 IDR is... More

I got goosebumps the moment it came into view. We stayed at the hotel adjacent and I could not wait to explore this place. Up at 5am for the sunrise tour and we were very excited. I am very unfit and up close Borobudur looks quite steep, I was concerned i would not be able to climb the hundreds of... More

2nd time here and not bored of it. Really good place for a lookout, spiritual enlightenment and just great for more knowledge. I would recommend hiring a guide to tell you the stories carved on the wall, what the statues mean and someone who can take photos for you.

Do you like budism temples and places in which you can "feel" the story and breath the peace and kindness? this is then a MUST for you if you're ever close by. The trip to Borobudur is long and through a bumpy road but for sure worth the time. Even the amount of tourists around you can still find places... More

This is the best attraction in Indonesia and second only to Ankor Wat (Cambodia) in all South East Asia. It's a stunning temple which has been restored over many years. It is set in beautiful gardens and has a very tranquil feel. You can spend just a couple of hours here or half a day here if you want. There... More

This temple is easily visited from Yogyakarta Jombor bus station from where buses go regularly for 25000 rupiah each way. You don't have to fork out on a guided tour and when you reach Borobudur just walk about 100 meters to the south of the bus station and you'll find the main car park for the temple. It is quite...
