This is a really beautiful attraction with lots of culture, amazing temple carvings and statues and incredible views. When you go in you are given and piece of cloth to tie around your waist as a sign of respect. You then climb up the temple using very steep stairs. I would say this attraction is not suitable for young children... More

Hi everyone, The Borobudur tour at Sunrise is amazing! It is really worth it and makes it better if you research the history a bit to really appreciate the beauty of this sacred space.i went on a weekday and it was not as crowded as I expected! The pictures were magnificent thanks to my guide. Although I used my hotel's... More

Great sculptures and mountain views with unlimited green. Like to be traveling in Indonesia bcuz the environment is clean and it's convenient to get anywhere if by a car. Many vendors sell everything if u need water or hats etc. It's different feeling if compared with Angkor wat, but if you love Angkor wat then I will recommend you visit... More

We chose this tour on our recent P & O Cruise tour. It is a stunning temple but be aware of the travel time it takes to get from the ship to the temple. We had a 3 hour each way trip in a police escorted bus. At the halfway mark we had light snacks but it was still a... More

Emailed Weidy Antara; the owner of this tour company, he responded within 24-hour hours. I recommend using them for Prabanan and Borobodur tours, and general Java tour while in Java Indonesia

Go there with a sunset tour so you get there before all the schools go there and you can't move because they want a "selfieselfie" with you. We had a sunset tour but did not see anything because of the fog. A local told us to go to the Chicken Church, a lost church full of grafitti. The view there... More

We went here in the morning which got quite hot. We had a tour guide tell us all about the history and story of the Borobudur (he actually spoke Dutch!). The steps are quite steep and on the way out you have to walk past hundreds of people trying to sell you stuff at ridiculously high prices!

The temple is quite a magnificent sight to behold from afar, and one should try to climb up to have a close-up look of the intricate details of stone work. Beware that the steps are quite steep both going up and down. If you're there during the Waisak Day celebrations like I was, you could catch the Buddhist ceremonies which... More

The Borobudur sunrise is a beautiful experience. Its an amazing temple, especially if you have a look at Buddhism before your visit and get a feel for the purpose behind the place. Its true that there are a number of visitors and you may even struggle a little to find a nice spot. But all the photos, posing, and crowding... More

We climbed Borobudur at 4 am and experienced a magical sunrise on its top despite pretty heavy fog. Fortunately the crowd wasn't too large. We had a fantastic time exploring the impressive temple complex and were impressed by its completeness and relatively intact condition.
