Yogyakarta- 5 Things You Must Do

Yogyakarta is charming. Every bit of the city needs to be savoured slowly. Here is a list of 5 things you must (absolutely) do in Yogyakarta. Word of advice: Take your time.

1. Ponder over the street art

Street artists in Yogyakarta have something to say. Strong statements to make. Take notice, stop and think.

This is the Yogyakarta dish. Homely, comfort food which is very affordable. We absolutely love the mee bakso at the stall along Jalan Cenderawasih.

We want to thank the genius who (despite all odds) convinced a second person to drink his concoction of roasted black coffee and a piece of flaming hot charcoal. Kopi Joss is now enjoyed by many, every night, right along Jalan P. Mangkubumi on the road pavements.

Take a short drive (or book a driver) to witness the fiery Mount Merapi upclose. Admire its beauty, tranquility and prepared to get mesmerized.

Borobudur is an absolute beauty.It is magnificent and majestic, yet simple and serene. Start your walk via the East entrance, and then clockwise around each level of stupa. Take your time to immerse in the tranquil and peaceful atmosphere, and try to feel eternity.
