    Nice pictures: I am just wondering about the crowd during normal days. On the pics it is looking pretty empty ( and beautiful!) but i have read that the site was welcoming over 2.5M visitors per year. What should I expect?

    Is there is any time during the year that I should avoid if come to visit Borobudur? I was already in Cambodia to visit angkor wat and it was great because on few visitors in the temples.
