Borobudur Temple Reviews
バリ島から飛行機で日帰りで行きました。 ジョグジャカルタの空港からは、タクシーをチャーターして、プランバナンと一緒に訪問。 まぁ、来る前からわかってはいましたが、人でいっぱいでした。 日中帯に行くと、どこを撮っても人が写り込んでしまい、旅行雑誌やパンフレットで見るような写真はまず撮れないでしょうw まぁ、それでもどうにか人が写り込まないように撮りましたが。。。 これが、朝一とか夕暮れ時で、人が少な... more »I went on a day trip by plane from Bali. From the airport in Yogyakarta, charter a taxi and visit with Planbanan. Well, I knew it before I came, but it was full of people. When I went to the band during the day, no matter where I took it, people would be able to take pictures like in travel magazines and pamphlets w Well, I took pictures so that people wouldn't get in. I think that this was a different atmosphere if it was one in the morning or at dusk, and there were few people. The ruins themselves are magnificent, beautiful and worth a must-see, but if you expect tranquility in the image that comes from the photos, you may be surprised at the number of tourists. In my case, I couldn't do it because I went with a bullet, but I recommend that you stay the night before or overnight and watch it at first night or dusk.
念願だった世界三代仏教遺産の3つ目、ボロブドゥールへ。 日本人観光客は少なかったですが、やっぱりサンライズは必見！ 神秘的で素敵でした。 more »To Borobudur, the third of the world's three Buddhist heritages that i had longed for. There were few Japanese tourists, but Sunrise is a must-see! It was mysterious and wonderful.
This is a beautiful temple in a picturesque setting, but It didn't quite live up to my expectations after reading it is one of the most beautiful temples in the world and Indonesia's number one tourist destination. If you love temples and views, even when the crowds and touts take up most of the picture, you should go. If you have already seen other temples in Asia and have limited time, you could skip this without missing out on too much.
The biggest temple in the world, good for holiday. This historical place has beautiful scenery and fresh air. If you want to enjoy this place it would be better if you go there in the early morning or in the afternoon, I suggest don’t go between 10:00AM-02:00PM because the sun will burn your skin unless if you take an umbrella.
