How To Get to Bantul
South of the popular tourist city of Yogyakarta lies a district now becoming known for its natural beauty and cultural attractions. With millions of tourists visiting the famous temples of Borobudur and Prambanan, a drive south through the regency of Bantul is a great addition to a trip to Central Java.
Tourist villages producing various kinds of handicraft products can also be found here. Such as Kasongan Tourism Village producing pottery crafts, Gendeng Village producing handicrafts of leather and puppets, and other villages of wood, silver, shell, gamelan and gold craftsmen.
Spirit of Java runs tours to Bantul and knows all the destinations worth seeing. A guided tour is perfect as this area is still somewhat off the beaten track and is best explored in the company of local knowledge.
