Many people have only heard about Jakarta or Bali but somehow Yogyakarta Indonesia (or as the locals pronounce it Jogjakarta or Jogja in short), is ignored.
As a city with charming cultural and historical sites, Yogyakarta offers culinary delights, street art, friendly locals, and handicraft products. There are so many attractions in Yogyakarta Indonesia – from ancient temples, rice fields, and volcanoes to culture and art.
For many years Yogyakarta has been a hub for culture and art as well as a leader in education since so many universities are located in its vicinity.
Yogyakarta and the surrounding area hold the status of a special province which is still ruled by the sultan today. Jogja’s rich culture and history make it the perfect place for culture lovers.
For most people who come to Yogyakarta, visiting Borobudur and Prambanan is at the top of the list of things to do in Yogyakarta.
Both of these temples are worth your visit.
Driving from the airport to Yogyakarta city’s center, you will see the colorful streets where so many walls and stores were covered by spectacular works of art.
Yogyakarta’s markets are definitely worth a visit and should be on your list of Yogyakarta attractions. If you are looking for a Yogyakarta shopping experience, head straight to Malioboro street.
This street is packed with endless stands of clothes, bags, accessories, and more. Just next to Malioboro street you can find the Traditional Market Beringharjo. It is in fact a large compound with a few floors where you’ll find many clothes, souvenirs as well as fruit and veggie stands.
