Bali must visit the place, the itinerary is better: the first afternoon, around four o'clock flight, not too early, early can not see the sunset, the hotel pick-up 350k, check in Manohara Hotel 1500k, excellent location, including double morning, tickets, afternoon tea, Brahmaputra documentary, to the hotel to have a good rest, enjoy garden-like Hotel afternoon tea (free) and dinner, two flowers. Fei 128K. The Hotel arrived at the scenic spot at 4:30 a.m. the next morning. It was the first one to catch up with the sunrise, get up early and cool, and there were few people. It was totally different from the feeling of the crowd pouring in around 9 o'clock. There were no random people in the picture, and there was the truth. The 6 o'clock tour guide came with the explanation tour, 7-9 o'clock free tour, I am a Buddhist, here turned the tower, did morning classes, returned to the hotel at 9:30, ordinary guests can basically return to the hotel at 8:30. Breakfast is served in the hotel. We eat late, so we can count brunch directly. We can save lunch time and have a rest or visit two other monasteries. Starting from the hotel at 1 p.m., you can take a plane at 4 p.m. and arrive at the Bali Hotel at 7:30 p.m. There are less than 2,000 people in the whole journey, including four-star hotel beside the scenic spot, two meals in the hotel, Hotel shuttle, tour guide and sunrise ticket surcharge. It's a good price performance.
One of the seven wonders of the world, one of the four miracles of Asian civilization, the Brahmaputra, which sounds mysterious, is the oldest Buddhist Pagoda in the world and the largest group of Buddhist pagodas in the world. I have unlimited expectations, but the higher the expectations, the greater the disappointment. I have visited Angkor Wat first. So naturally, I will make a comparison. In terms of scale, it's a bit worse. Of course, its greatness and history can not be underestimated. The ancient stone statue pagoda, exquisite thousand-year sculpture can be fully appreciated, if each floor is completed a whole circle is quite time-consuming, of course, the tour guide will not allow us to browse directly to the top floor, overlooking the city for a week, and then reach out to try to touch the Buddhist pagoda's goda, if you can, it is said to bring good luck. It is worthwhile to come here for half a day to experience Javan civilization and religious history.
Borobudur is a world-famous thousand-year Buddhist monument with ten floors, representing the "ten places" of Mahayana Buddhism. It is as famous as the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal of India, the Angkor monument of Cambodia and the pyramids of Egypt. It is known as the five miracles of the ancient East. Detailed introduction will not be copied. We followed Grandpa Lai, a Chinese tour guide, who was appointed by Hyatt in Yogyakarta. Get up at 3:45 a.m. and come here to watch the sunrise. Unfortunately, it's cloudy and there's no golden light from the sun. The tour guide said that nowadays, air pollution and haze make it very rare to see the golden Buddha light shining in his eyes. He came here hundreds of times and only saw seven times. But we still saw the beautiful scenery of the mountains and forests around him in the mist when the sun was rising. After sunrise, Grandpa Lai took us along the clockwise direction (this is the right-handed ritual of Buddhist pilgrimage to the Holy sites), and went from top to bottom layer by layer. On the way, when we met the place where there were stories, we stopped to talk. There are several explanations for Mahayana Buddhism "Ten Places". The tour guide introduces "from bottom to top are places of joy, dirt, light, flame resort, difficult resort, now, far-away place, immovable place, good wisdom, and Fayun land, respectively. After all, we are not religious. We do not strictly circle each floor, but listen attentively with respect, watch slowly, and make a complete circle in the tenth floor and the first floor with great joy. The most amazing thing about this temple is the innumerable beautiful sculptures and statues of Buddha. Sculpture tells the story of the good money boy most, because the king who built the temple actually regarded himself as the incarnation of the good money boy. In addition, there are many pagodas here. Apart from the top round pagoda, all the other small pagodas are bell-shaped, with holes and Buddha statues sitting inside. However, due to the accident that curious children once stuck their heads in Confucius to see Buddha statues, the government opened the shells of two small bell-shaped Buddhist pagodas so that people could see clearly the Buddha statues inside.
It rained the night before, and the sunrise on the second day was super beautiful. It felt like a good trip. The price of the sunrise ticket has risen. 400 thousand Indonesian guilders, close 200 yuan. See if the sunrise is not at the main entrance. The main entrance does not open until 6 o'clock. Walk left at the main entrance and buy a sunrise ticket from a hotel for ten minutes. When you come out, remember to return the flashlight, so that you can get a batik scarf of Borobudur. Brahmaputra relief is very beautiful, although I have been to Angkor, but it is not the same beauty, and the sunrise is much more beautiful than Angkor, the distant Mount Merapi is still smoking, in fact, there is time to stay in Yogyakarta, because the sunrise at Mount Merapi is also super praise.
Volcanic eruptions, the world's largest Buddhist resort, sank the pagodas and hid them in dense tropical jungles for nearly a thousand years, until they were cleared out in the early 19th century. The Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal of India and Angkor Wat of Cambodia are known as the four miracles of the ancient East. Elephants can be ridden in the scenic area, and the children have experienced one.
Called the world's four ancient miracles, the building is indeed spectacular, four directions have steps to climb, the East is the main entrance, if it is to see the sunrise, absolutely very shocking, although reached around 7 o'clock, but many people, especially many students, may have relations on Saturdays. So it is very difficult to find a variety of angles to avoid the crowd. Compared with the same price of more than 100 tickets, Borobudur is absolutely shocking. All right.
There are three places worth visiting in Yogyakarta: Borobudur, Pranbanan and Mount Morapi. Borobudur and Pranbanan are similar style buildings with a long history and very cultural connotations. Borobudur must go to see the sunrise, get up at 3 o'clock and take a taxi for an hour. He can't see the sunrise without going to a good place earlier. Watch the sunrise and then go to Pranbanan. In fact, there are many volcanoes in Indonesia. The more beautiful one is Sishui, which is called Bromo Transliteration.
The largest Buddhist complex site in the world, Brahmaputra, has been listed as a world cultural heritage. The volcanic eruption made the pagodas descend and cover the dense tropics from the forest for nearly a thousand years. It was not until the early 19th century that they were cleaned up. The walls of the corridors were carved with narrative reliefs. The stories were based on Buddhist scriptures.
Borobudur watched the sunrise, got up at three in the morning, drove for more than half an hour, went up with his flashlight, and climbed to the top before dawn at four o'clock, not very high. Be sure to wear red! The monument matches red clothes very well. It's not good to take good pictures. Very Buddhist characteristics, exclamation of the creativity of ancient believers.
