    ALWAYS CARRY FRESH BOTTLED WATER

    by DennyP Written Nov 9, 2011
    FRESH BOTTLED DRINKING WATER    DONT BE WITHOUT IT

    WARNING
    When travelling to these usually isolated archaeological sites here in South East Asia I always carry sufficient fresh bottled water for the day. Due to the extreme heat and humidity in the tropics it is amazing how much water you drink. Dehydration can so easily come upon you it is so important to drink lots of fresh water. Be careful also to check the screw caps on the bottle tops to make sure that the seals have NOT been broken and the bottle refilled with tap water.This happened to me unfortunately which created terrible stomach problems.
    A wide brimmed hat and a good pair of sunglasses is a must
    ALWAYS BE AWARE

    NUISANCE! Persistent Touts!!

    by xuessium Written May 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Description:
    Be prepared to be attacked from all fronts by VERY persistent touts (they are there, at the tourist attractions of Borobudor and Prambanan) who will do anything to get your attention and make deals with you to make a sale. Quite a few could tag you for half an hour or so, bugging and harassing you. It could really get irritating.

    Keep your calm, do not establish eye contact and keep on walking. Better still, pretend they are not there.

    Park Entry Fee Difference: Foreigners vs Locals

    by xuessium Written May 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Like it or not, this is how things operate here in Borobudor & Prambanan. If you are an overseas visitor, you have to be subjected to a higher price for the entry tickets (as if flying there wasn't expensive enough).

    Under the pretense of national pride, Prambanan costs US$6 pax while Borobudor costs US$9 pax for overseas visitors while The locals enter the park only at a fraction of the cost (almost one-tenth).
