The above rates of course can be changed any time in accordance with the policy developers of Borobudur Park.

I don't know about facilities that included , but my friend told me the price is inclusive of dinner tickets. They said dinner was served before the performance starts. So before seeing the show, guests are invited to eat dinner that has been provided which are usually arranged like a garden party. The show was held by the duration of one hour.
