  1. It’s just really awful that you discriminate that much against foreigners by making them pay 1000% more than locals. no developed country does this ever in terms of a price difference. Not all people coming out of Indonesia are swimming in money. locals pay 3500 and foreigners pay 300,000 ? come on, give me a break.. That’s almost comical.

    • I discriminate you? First, I’m not the one who set the price. Secondly, If you feel that it is not fair, well i tell you this. Even in Europe, the museums charge tourist differently and the locals can go in for free or less. You think that’s fair for us, who many of us make less money than you guys in europe or any other developed countries do. If you can’t afford it, then choose other temples that are not listed as UNESCO sites. The entrance fee are mostly IDR5k-20k. There are plenty of them around Central Java. My two cents for you James. Cheers mate.

  2. I agree the prices for tourists are ridiculously high that it certianly puts me off going. Can I afford it? Not really anymore.. Nowhere in Europe is like that, never to this degree. It’s just pure exploitation of white people with no logic applied. Sadly it’s like that in many places in the south east Asia and now in Indonesia as well. I won’t rush back!
