  • Great place for picnic in the afternoon. The walk definitely worth it. Last time I visit here, the EO arrange dinner in the complex. Outdoor dinner under the stars after watching sunset is really awesome experience.
  • great place to enjoy the sunset view. best to come here around 4pm so you could walk around the archeological site and still have time to enjoying the sunset. this place could be very very crowded during weekend so you should visit this place during weekday if you have time.
  • IDR325K each per foreigner (since May 2017 apparently) is down right ridiculous! Should've voted with our feet on arrival. Not worth it. Dirty, unkept, unmaintained (missing stairs on paths etc). And everyone sits on famous "gates" so you can't even get a decent pic of the sunset. Forget about the shots you see on the web. Dinner (as they call it, snack) is very plain, fried rice/noodle, tea/coffee, to be expected. I wouldn't waste my time, very plain ruins/rubble, with so many other amazing sites around especially at this absolutely ludicrous price.
  • One of my favourite place in Jogja. Well managed and has a big public space for people to enjoy and socialise. It is, in a way, romantic as well.
  • I was lucky to have been able to visit this site. The complex of Candi Ratu Boko is best enjoyed in the afternoon, especially before the sun sets.
