This stunning view at sunrise is an experience that you cannot measure with money, or explain in words. It is so relaxing, and it just makes you thankful that another day is rising and you can see it going up behind the volcano, with the birds chirping and singing a new day. The mist of clouds around the area is... More

This largest temple is a must see if you come to Yogyakarta. A World Heritage site, it was totally covered with volcanic ash. Steep steps - had me worried when slight drizzle started. Keep track of which of the 4 entrances you start to climb. Read up on the temple (built over 1000 years ago) to know the intricacies of... More

First of all, the temple is beautiful and it definitely is a magical place, but there is simply no chance to enjoy it even a bit. 1. The price is a rip-off. International tourists and national tourists are split at the entrance because the entrance price differs. Ok, I get that, but 325.000 per person is simply a rip off... More

It's a world's largest Buddhist temple in the world and a Unesco heritage centre. You wouldn't like to miss it when you come to central Java. I would prefer to read some info about it before the visit. There's a TV channel at my hotel with a documentary introducing Borobudur Temple history and story. I found the local students are...

Came here was the sunrise and was not disappointed. Had to pay a bit extra so enter via the hotel but that gave us the chance to pick a spot and wait for the sunrise. The view of the sun rising amidst the stupas and over Merapi volcano was gorgeous. It does get crowded with people and everyone trying to... More

Went to Borobudur for sunrise. You walk to the top (about 9 flights of steps) then find a spot to watch the sun come up over Mount Merapi. Spent a couple of hours with our guide wandering around and listening to the story of the temple, from construction in 9th century to the 2 reconstructions that have taken place, the... More

Borovudur Is one of the must see spots in Asia. Try to come just before sunset. Colors are most beautiful at those minutes. Magnificient and spiritual place.
