Borobudur, a small village - where the largest Buddhist temple is located. Most tourists only come to visit the temple alone - then go home, not many know, it turns out there are many tourism potentials in Borobudur that we can enjoy. One of them is the Borobudur VW Tour. Getting around, passing through the still beautiful rural streets with coconut trees lined up neatly on the side of the road and green rice plants adds cheerful tourism with the VW Cabrio after we see the beauty of the sunrise from Punthuk Setumbu.

Which needs to be prepared when enjoying VW Cabrio tours

Because some of the village roads that are still land and cars are open, ask the driver for the mask. Bring sunglasses and sunblock to protect yourself from the heat of the sun. Especially during the dry season. More is recommended to follow the activities in the morning when the air is still cool and the sun is not too hot.

The Cabrio car runs slowly so tourists can capture the surroundings
