New Years Eve in Yogyakarta

Hi there,

I`ll be in Yogyakarta for New Years Eve and I was wondering if there is any good/the best place to watch the fireworks. If there are fireworks, of course!

Thanks,

Veve

sorry for the late reply

yes, there is no official fireworks NYE party like in Sydney Harbor Bridge or New York Time Square.

Sometimes there was some concerts in NYE in Yogyakarta with fireworks. They were great,but not spectacular.

But,there are a lot of spots where people will gather and shot their own fireworks.

They are more more spectacular in my opinion because we can participate in making the fireworks.

You can buy your own fireworks, something like this :

and yes,they will produce the same fireworks that you see in fireworks party in NYE in other big cities.

Last year when I was in Yogya, I bought 150k Rupiah (15 USD) worth of fireworks.

I got 3 really bigh stick with 10 shoot of fireworks each. I held it by hand. It was scary at first but actually it was all right

Buy the fireworks in fireworks store if you don't want to bargain and haggle.

You can see from the videos below how great the fireworks were in Yogyakarta.

I think it was in Malioboro somewhere :

Both of the video below were taken around Tugu Yogya

it was in malioboro as well,in the junction where the post office/BNI building and Gedung Agung are located

I think it is the best spot to see fireworks in Yogya

it was in alun alun utara :

As I said before, those fireworks were created by the people who watched it, and you can do it too! It was a great experience from me to be able to participate in making the fireworks.

Another option is to go somewhere higher in Yogyakarta to enjoy fireworks across Yogyakarta, like Kaliurang, Bukit Bintang Pathuk (Pathuk Hill).

no worries.

just make sure to arrive on your preferred spot early because there will be a massive traffic jam in the centre of Yogya from 23.00 to 01.00.

don't ever try to use car around this time, there will be motorbikes everywhere that make car rendered useless
