Borobudur Temple Better than Angkor Wat

Borobudur Temple Better than Angkor Wat – This is the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world. My wife and I visited here after seeing Angkor Wat in Cambodia and the Buddhist temples in Bagan, Myanmar (Burma) on the same trip. The bell-shaped stupas with the Buddha figures inside them is what makes it unique.

Yes, the entry fee is a little high but you can get a combo ticket for here and Prambanan for a lower price overall. What we found was the entry fee was well used. The Indonesian government really takes care of these sites. The park areas around them are immaculate. The grass is like a high-end golf-course. Borobudur is at least 300 years older than Angkor Wat, yet the engravings are much clearer and in better shape here than in Angkor Wat.

Visiting Borobudur and the Hindu temples of Prambanan can all be done in day. Just hire a driver to take you, so you can skip the shops the tour buses take you to. Use the extra time for lunch along the way. The price for a private vehicle for the two of us was cheaper than two tour bus tickets, and it had personal air conditioning.

  •   Percutian yg menyeronokkan. Tempatยฒ yang menarik. Pemandu yg baik, peramah, penyabar. Tq mas Adi dan pak Agus. Semoga ketemu lg di lain waktu.
