If you are in the area, I would take the time to visit this Temple. Perhaps if I hadn't been to Angkor Watt, I might have appreciated it more. 300K Rp Tourist price, 30K Rp local price.

Admission is $20US or 18 euros, in addition to whatever you paid your tour company to bring you here. It is a breathtaking place to walk, wander, and meditate. Hard to believe this was built in the 9th century!

Visited in June. The historical site is nice, and the Buddhas are stunning. But beware of huge local visitors, also annoying vendors x

Splendid monument to Indonesia's proud past! It is stupefying to imagine how much the architects had to toil to give shape to this monument.. that too at a period (1200 years back approx) when technologies were not much advanced. There are various levels on the temple. Fantastic view from the highest level where the stupa is. Very steep stone steps... More

We went there with our 2 little boys. We used the little bus to get to the temple from the entry gate to safe some time and energy. At first I was not sure we will be able to make our way to the top. But we did, thanks to the very kind and friendly street photographer who offered us... More

Hire the English-speaking guide at the door. You will appreciate the history and the stories on the wall better. The site is hot, so keep hydrated. There is a combo ticket at the ticket booth that allows entry to this temple AND Prabanan Temple for around USD35. You can cover both amazing sites in one day. At the end of... More

This temple is a must-see for everyone. I visited during Ramadan, which turned out to be a real advantage. There were minimal visitors and it was easy to get a good view of the temple, the engravings and views. Great!

We visited Borboudur few weeks ago. You have to rent a sarong( the rent is free) and must be returned when you are at the exit. It is quite a walk from the entrance to the Borobudur temple. We unfortunately visit this site in mid morning when the sun was burning. Bring lots of water, bring umbrella, wear sunscreen to... More

Rented a motorbike and rode over to Borobudur, very easy hour drive. Recommend earlier as the sun is quite hot at the temple, with little shade. The temple is really beautiful, but you certainly don't need a guide unless you're incapable of reading Wikipedia on your own. It would be really peaceful if there weren't enormous groups of school children... More
