    I have been to Yogyakarta twice and took the same guide each time. what a great team, they did everything to make the best of it. Everything was comfortable and they were very flexible if we wanted to see more along the way. I definitely recommend the combo package from Ijen, Bromo & Merapi. Thank you

    The museum contains valuable paintings of the Sultan's family, and exhibits such as batik depicting Javanese culture. The grounds are beautiful but photography is not allowed until in a special area at the conclusion of the tour, which is just outside a restaurant. The guide was excellent, but she spoke very fast. Visitors must use a guide, either English or Indonesian speaking, and the prices for either differ quite a bit. I think we chose one who spoke Indonesian, but either way, it would turn out good as, based on what we saw, the items on exhibit were esthetically interesting and educational.
    There's plenty of parking.

    I just visited it today on May 17 2024. Right now/at that time, SMKN 3 Pity is having an art exhibition there. And it's very good. Not just the exhibition but the place where the exhibition itself is held

    Malioboro road is the Main Street of Yogyakarta.

    It’s quite pleasant for a stool as it features wide walking footpaths that are not littered with scooters and sidewalk vendors.

    The street itself has a large number of stores featuring all kinds of items - particularly
    Souvenirs. There are also a few restaurants with most of the street vendors being in the northern part of the street.

    Overall worth a visit but nothing spectacular.

    Requires some gut as you will be going down a rope about 60 meters down into a cave. They provide shoes but be prepared with suitable clothing as you will need to do some kind of short hike. Lunch is provided in the package

    The view of the light is amazing. But it has to be a sunny day or else you can't see the effect. Can take a lot of photographs.

    Coming back up is also being pulled up the rope. Do not worry about safety as you will be provided with all the climbing harnesses and equipment.

    Candi sewu is one of four groups of temples located within the prambanan temple complex. The most famous is roro jonggrang which contains the complex of temples most associated with prambanan including the 47m high Candi shiva. The others are less notable - lumbung and bubrah.

    Candi sewu is actually the 2nd largest Buddhist temple, after Borobudur. A lot of the site is yet to be reconstructed having suffered significant collapses particularly to its peripheral buildings from earthquakes.

    To get here from roro jonggrang you can get a cart transfer or simply walk about 20 minutes via lumbung and bubrah.

    It’s quite beautiful and definitely worth a visit.

    Lovely temple with very few visitors. Took about an hour to explore. Is open on Mondays, so a good option when main temples are closed.

    This is a museum, religious site and civic centre rolled into one. It makes for a relaxing visit, where you can wander around the sites at leisure. We visited during Ramadan, during which the gamelan was silent.

    Watch out for the hawkers around the site. They are aggressive and persistent.

    These are beautiful baths, in which you can enjoy the atmosphere of the royal hygiene routine. There isn't a great deal here, to be honest, so, if you aren't careful, you'll find yourself in the exit after only 10 minutes. So take your time.

    Watch out for the aggressive hawkers outside the site.

    Being from India and also as I am in the midst of reading the Valmiki Ramayana(there is a traditional ritualistic method of reading), the Ballet experience was amazing. The narration in the form of a dance-drama was very apt in so far as the story (mind you it is a 24002 couplets story) could how well be abridged for the dance-drama to convey the essence the epic. Hats off to Indonesia for giving a wonderful glimpse of this great work which is most sacred to the Hindus. There could not have been a better venue for this classic programme than the precincts of the mighty Prambanan Temple complex. Words are insufficient to convey my appreciation of the Indonesian Government for preserving their ancient culture and traditions despite their transition to other cultural practices'.

    Pantai Timang island, the gondola ride and rope bridge are WELL WORTH VISITING!! The beach, ocean and scenery are absolutely breathtaking, but half the fun is getting there!

    I rented a scooter in Yogyakarta for 110K IDR and drove for around 2hrs, before I needed to park up and rent a jeep (300K) for the last section. The last section of the road is really bad and it's pretty much impossible to drive that yourself unless you have a 4x4 car or dirt bike.

    Anyway, if you want to see the whole journey, check out my video review on my YouTube channel - G Light Travels!

    It takes 15 minutes if you are buy all in ticket from Prambanan, you can choose some pick up bus from prambanan every 15 minutes. So far Ratu Boko Temple is ordinary temple only the park and usual temple. But the good thing is the resto has a good and romantic view
