  • Its a very stunning view for sunset. Recommended for those who are hunting for good photo's spots. Not to difficult to reach, but please expect small countryside road to reach there. Ticketing close....  more

  • Spot sun set..menu restonya ok
  • Not really fascinating, you better see Prambanan than this ruins things. Well they have a good restaurant with a fair price, a good parking lot, etc. It's scary if there is traffic on the way here because the terrain can significantly change up and down. The down thing here is the photographer bull*hits that will promise you about his photography skills but the results are very poor. And it needs more space to sit and hide from the sun.
  • Great management. Clean, cozy, no obnoxious sellers, great feeling for coming here. Parking space, buildings, etc, the site in general is very well planned. Price is very worth for the experience. 10000% better experience than my experience in Borobudur.
  • Technically, Ratu Boko is not a temple, but a remain of King's Palace. The place is well-maintained, and located on the hill. Great view to the city below. There is an upscale cafe located nearby with great views.
  • kind of Beautiful and historical site. I appreciate how this place is developed so well. they accept non cash payment. to get best experience, i suggest to come in the afternoon.. when the sun is almost setting.
