Sunrise Tour of Borobudur Temple – Java Heritage Tour – I went somewhere towards the afternoon on a cloudy day. I did skip out the sunrise tour bevause it seemed a tad too early 🙂 But I am sure that on a non cloudy day this place would light up like magic during sunrise
It is very accessible. The hotel I stayed at arranged for a drop off at Manohara which makes for quite a nice and convenient entry to the temple compounds at no price difference (called the vip entrance by the hotel and they said there was no price difference)
There are a lot of local tourists roaming around with selfie sticks which may sort of Mar your photographic experience. But be patient, walk around and the crowds will clear up in patches.
Do see the beautiful carvings on the walls by going around the temple.
The entrance fee is (obviously) higher for foreigners. Once you are done with your tour, you can head to the Manohara restaurant and catch some snacks/a meal. It’s a nice setting overlooking the temple directly.
I also didn’t do Borobudur from Yogyakarta in order to make it a bit more relaxed and experiential. I stayed in Borobodur for a night. This is possibly a not too bad idea because you would want to spend some time here during the day
