travel to Yojga

I was considering coming to Yogja as a leg of an Asian trip in late December-early January.

Questions: what are the must dos for a four day timeframe?

I have seen good reviews on Grand Mercure. Do you feel this is a good choice, or are there others that have advantages?

Is it easy to arrange trips to Borobudor, Prambunam, or cultural events such as wayang performances, or is it better to arrange details before hand?

How/where to shop for nice (though not necessarily expensive) batik?

Scams or places to avoid (I am fairly well travelled in area, but never to Indonesia)?

How much to budget?

Thanks for any answers.

DEFINITELY visit Jojga. My wife and I have travelled the world and think Yogyakarta and the central/eastern Java area to be the most beautiful and enjoyable areas there is. Normally we are free spirits who travel w/o guides but we find it so nice to hire a guide and driver to tour in java. It frees us to see and enjoy and not worry about driving and route finding --- both of which are difficult. You can see small villages, mountainous areas, beautiful agricultural areas, see antique shops, art studios. I can't wait until our return trip in late October.

If you like boutique hotel... or a more local-taste hotel... you may check these :




Batik is already cheap in Yogya, compared to other cities. But you may try Solo, only one hour drive from Yogya. Anyhow, bargaining skills is the most important :-)
