Incredible Borobudur Temple and Quiet Rural Villages

Incredible Borobudur Temple and Quiet Rural Villages – It’s nicer and cheaper to stay in Borobudur to visit this area rather than do as a day trip from Yogyakarta especially as an early start is best. A great driver with AC car is Mr. Agus Rohmad who speaks good English and knows everwhere to go around Borobudur and Yogyakarta – contact +62 8191 5534 286 or email agusrohmad@yahoo.com or contact@javaheritagetour.com

Best to visit Borobudur temple early in the morning to avoid the crowds, the extra price for a sunrise ticket may not be worth it in April as often cloudy but it does give you a few hours to see and take photos before hundreds of people arrive. Best to come Monday to Friday as less people and at the weekends more locals and school groups come and want to practice English asking basic questions, after the tenth time it’s a bit wearying! Also be prepared to be continually asked to have a group photo or selfie with Indonesians, you can be asked many times.

It is worth a temple guide unless you have a good guide and you can rent umbrellas to keep off the sun/rain. You can go down and eat at the Manohara hotel within the temple grounds as a non-guest if you want to come back to the temple later. To avoid the endless tourist shops on leaving go straight ahead past the first exit after the museum and follow the next set of exit signs, its a lot shorter. The boat museum in the temple grounds has minimal English signage, the temple museum is a bit better and has a few interesting old photos both included in your ticket but could be a lot better.

If you are interested in Buddhist temples then Candi Mendut close by is worth a visit and cycling around the quiet villages is very nice, the traffic is not so busy nor fast. You can see a lot of rural activities or you can join a cycle tour if preferred and the local restaurants are much cheaper than the tourist ones on the main road back to Yogyakarta..

      For four days, I traveled around with Mas Agus from Java Heritage Tours. He took me to see the temples of Borobudur and Prambanan, explore vulcanic craters, see the Dieng plateau, and visit various sights in the city of Yogyakarta. I even got a cooking class at his place (which was delicious).

    I was traveling through Indonesia by myself, but Agus made me feel very safe and took great care of me. He was super friendly and very knowledgeable. I had an absolutely fantastic time, and I can recommend Java Heritage Tours to anyone! More
