Borobudur Sunrise Very Fantastic – I traveled all the way from Los Angeles to visit Borobudur. It was worth it. I did the sunrise tour and I suggest getting a guide to explain all the history. There is so much to learn about this intriguing place. The sunrise tour includes breakfast and they give you a nice gift at the end. I booked my tour with the Plataran- the hotel I stayed at.
There were not too many people when I did the sunrise tour so you can get great pictures without tourists. The weather is also was not as hot which was also nice. The only downfall on the sunrise tour was the fog. It took a few hours to clear to get good shots.
The rush of tourists came in around 9. There were many school field trips and the kids wanted to take pictures with us and practice their English. I think it may be a school project. I saw them following quite a few English speakers. It was cute but it can suck your time up if you are on a schedule.
There will be vendors at the end that have pretty unique items. You can bargain with them.
