  1. Thank you for the information 🙂

    I’m planning to go visit there next year. Planning to visit Borobudur in the morning to watch the sunrise and Prambanan to watch the sunset on the same day. I got a few questions to ask you:

    1) May I know where can I purchase the combo ticket of Borobudur and Prambanan?
    2) Does the combo ticket allow me to go in early for the sunrise at Borobudur? Or at 6am? Cause I heard if go with the Manohara tour, we’re allowed to go there at 4.45am.
    3) Just for confirmation: the combo ticket is valid for 48 hours upon purchase? Means I can use the ticket to go Borobudur and Prambanan on the same day?

    Looking forward to your reply 🙂

    • Hi Jake,

      1. At the ticket office at the entry of the temples.
      2. The combo ticket only allows you to enter the temples at public hour (from 6am). If you want to see the sunrise from inside the temple, you must purchase the entrance ticket at Manohara resort (the resort located next to Borobudur temple).
      3. Yes correct you can use within the same day until it expires (the next day, end of the day, after purchase day).
