More About This Experience
'Borobudur is Borobudur' as one historian famously said, conveying simply that there is nothing quite like the Borobudur experience! At dawn, as you witness the mist shrouded plains and hear the first call of the birds, it becomes effortless to imagine yourself time travel to that ancient era of Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms when magnificent monuments were raised to the heavens in expression of their cultural and religious devotions. And as the mist slowly begins to lift with the rising sun to reveal the totality of Borobudur's architectural masterpiece, it sets the perfect backdrop for a morning exploring this timeless monument of Javanese history.
Often times, as travelers we find ourselves in a city dashing through must-see sights and attractions without really immersing ourselves wholly, and that's fine. Not all attractions warrant such in-depth exploration, and after all, it comes down to individual preferences. Other times however, despite our best efforts to explore a place earnestly, it's difficult to arrange something reliable. As travelers we're perpetually wary and defensive toward pushy guides who offer their services and naturally so, how are we to know if they're any good?
Understanding that a rich experience of Borobudur cannot be done without a guided tour and that the lack of proper information for reliable tours to Borobudur may prevent some of us from having a "complete' experience, we put together this tour for our guests.
