Cultural Heritage, tradition, art, and the old worldly atmosphere of a Sultan palace make up the must-see Yogyakarta. Often described as the soul of Java, you’ll have one serious culture crush by the end of your stay.



Spend the afternoon strolling around Yogyakarta's many shiny malls with a latte in hand. Stumble across exhibitions, concerts, and cultural performances that will feed your creativity and excite your senses. Then when you do build up an appetite head down to the night markets for a cheap feed of some ‘enak’ - tasty Nasi Kuning - Campur with a Javanese twist. The many local warungs hidden within Yogyakarta's busy streets are well worth a taste test or two, just hati hati - careful when it comes to the sambal. Malioboro Street, one of this regions most bustling hubs, is great for grabbing a beer or cheap snack before you hit the many clubs also found within this region. Then for anyone still full of energy, sunrise trips to the archaeological sites of Borobudur and Prambanan will be the perfect end to one perfect trip.
