The Batik Villages in Solo

Within this street you will find many Batik shops around. You can shop or learn how to process the batik. A very interested place to visit if you are in Solo.

I went to go with high hopes. Well, I had a lot of expectation with all the stories about Batik in Solo. The price is not cheaper than Danar Hadi. And there are so many shops along the way, few with air conditioning, so it was so stuffy inside the shop. Better come with car to visit the various shops.

The area is know as a place where you can search and buy a good quality Batik. Many shops are around and people can just hop from one to another. The area however lacking public facility such as a good and comfortable pavement with trees as well as a centralized parking spot, so that visitors can just park their car... More

Great if you want to know walk on the small street, from one house to another, and do some bargain... But of course you must know some about the batik, or you'll get overpriced batik...

Good if you like just common batik and learn a bit of the fun, many shops offer Batik making process tour and workshop. If you are serious Batik pattern lover, this is maybe a hit and miss, I could not find many that goes to be creative and valuable. The map shows wrong spot!

Located in narrow alley, you can find so much batik stuff. From raw sheet until sandal, you can find it hear. If you come from out town, please use cab driver to drop you to kampoeng batik. The price is standard, because they have more good quality versus the klewer batik type :D

Actually I visited this area not for the "Batik" but for the architecture. People in Solo knows that this place is famous with the "Heritage" architecture from the dutch colonialism. There's still some buildings that you... More
