Many people said that a single visit to Yogyakarta is NEVER ENOUGH.
and yesss I agree with them... not because this is my hometown, but Jogja is such a beautiful city!!
Yogyakarta is one of the foremost cultural centers of java. The city is a place to come to connect with centuries of old traditions, culture and the history of Java as well as bask in the friendliness of local people.It is a place with unique charm which seldom fails to captivate visitors. From natural wonders , local art, and traditions , examples of Javanese heritage to delicious culinary delights, Yogya is a city with numerous attractions.
If Jakarta is Java’s financial and industrial powerhouse, Yogyakarta is its SOUL. Central to the island’s artistic and intellectual heritage, Yogyakarta (pronounced ‘Jogjakarta’ and called Yogya for short), is where the Javanese language is at its purest, Java’s arts at their brightest and its traditions at their most visible.

|Jalan Malioboro (Malioboro Street) is a major shopping street in Yogyakarta. It lies north-south axis in the line between Yogyakarta Kraton and Mount Merapi.|
