Jakarta’s little sister city is a much younger and dynamic place than the capital. There are few places in the world where the chaos is so exotic as in this city on the island of Java, still reigned over by a Sultan.
If you are planning to travel to Yogyakarta, you should know that the architectural and cultural heritage of this city is truly spectacular. It’s amazing to watch the sun rise from the Borobudur Buddhist Temple or cycle through the Prambanan Hindu Temple Complex. Both of them are recognised as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Time stands still at the Sultan’s Palace and never stops on the bustling Malioboro shopping street, the best place to feel the vibrant heartbeat of the city. If you still have any energy, at sunset take a tour of the Alun Alun park on an “odong odong”, the colourful Indonesian rickshaws. In the park, you can also take the peculiar magic tree test to reveal whether or not you have a pure heart. Are you ready?
