“Fantastic, but don't forget also to goto the other temples nearby!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Including Sewu, right behind Prambanan, and Plaosan, etc. No sunrise visit ability like at Borobudur so get there early to avoid the crowds. Definitely get a guide at the front as ours was great and very knowledgeable.

“A must-see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Visiting Prambanan Temple and its surroundings was an incredible experience! Despite the earthquake that caused some problems a few years ago, I was amazed by the beauty of those temples!

I would definitely recommend people to visit Prambanan during one's stay in Indonesia.

I was just annoyed by the mass of street sellers trying to sell you something and walking along with you for some time, but I guess this is happening all over Asia, and they did not get physical with us anyway.

“Rip off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

As an foreigner you must pay much more then the Indonesians. This is typical and not acceptable. The area is also packed with souvenir stalls and they really disturb the nice environment
