The sunrise at Borobudur is one of those magical experiences that makes us spend so much money on travel. The site of the smoking volcano on the horizon, combined with the brilliant hues and Buddhas on the summit of the temple mountain, make this one of the most enlightening moments one can experience in travel. Borobudur is located in central Java, near Jogjakarta. The best place to stay in order to see the sunrise is Manohara Hotel Borobudur, which shares the grounds of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hotel allows you to roll out of bed just before sunrise and stake out a great spot.
