Borobudur Sunrise Tour – Once in a lifetime experience – I planned my trip to Borobudur so that I could catch the first sunrise of Chinese New Year this year even though this is the rainy season. I chosed to stay in Manohara Hotel (within Borobudur compound) for easy access. Was quite worried that the sunrise tour could not go on as was told by hotel reception that it has been raining for the past few days. In the end, despite the wet floor since it was still raining heavily at 3am, was very glad that the rain stopped in time for the tour to start at 4.30am and we managed to see the sunrise!
Borobudur Sunrise Tour Experience Significance and Memorable .
And we even get to see Mount Merapi! While the climb up Borobudur is not easy (glad that there’s the installed handrail), the view, atmosphere and the fact that I am on one of the most magnificent Buddhist structures on the first day of my Chinese New Year made the experience significance and memorable. Also I was surprised that the whole group of us were not given the scarf to wear hence it made my photo looks good. Overall my conclusion, everyone should do this once in their lifetime!
