We visited this at the time of sunrise and it was beautiful. We arranged a pre-booked tour through a local travel agent and entered at around 4:30 am through Hotel Manohara. Best view of the sunrise is from the top most platform. Use of compass app on your phone can tell you the right direction to look at for the... More

We loved it here! Such amazing gorgeous reliefs! And the view! When we arrived it was very hot so we rented an umbrella for shade from the sun as we walked around. Soon after we began our walk around the temple, thunder, lighting and rain started and the rain was extremely heavy and the umbrella did not protect us at... More

Borobudur is about an hours drive from Jogja. We left our hotel at 3.30am. Tickets for sunrise are more costly, at Rp450000. It is a magnificent temple. Best time for pictures is at sunrise. Break away from the bulk of the people who are still all gathered on the east side of the temple watching the sun for your own... More

If you come to Yogyakarta, Indonesia, you should visit this place, because this is one of the 7 wonders in the world.

A fantastic place to visit, and it makes all the difference to get a guide. None of us are exactly history buffs, but the guide turned what would otherwise have just been a trip to see an impressive temple into a really fun experience and gave us a much better appreciation of the place - the cost is IDR 100,00...

Absolutely amazing temple. Well rebuilt and maintained. Must - see! We went in the middle of the day, so it was very hot and very busy, but well worth it. There are cold drinks on the way out. Be warned - if you are foreigner you will likely be asked many times for a photo ... ;-)

A UNESCO heritage site, Borobudur temple is the epitome of architectural magnificence and cultural reflection from 9th century AD. There would seldom be any reason to visit Jogja if not for Borobudur alone. As a traveller's guiding tip, I would mention below what worked for me. The place and the compound is huge. Acres of land. Maintainance cost is good... More

Our visit was included in a pre-booked package. At the parking lot we were handed over to a local guide with fluently English who brought us to the separate entrance for foreigners. There we received a bottle of water which in no case should be rejected. Later on you may need it urgently. First you walk through a park like... More

The only thing I can say about this place that this is a must see world wonder. You can stay and just stare at it for hours. Just an awesome experience to be at such a grandiose temple.
