The trip to Yogyakarta is my favorite journey because for me it is the start to see the world. So I am going to tell you everything about it.
My journey started from the Station Pasar Senen (Jakarta) to the Station Lempuyangan ( Yogyakarta ). On this journey, I use a car. The distance is 7 hours and 22 minutes until you arrive at the station Lempuyangan ( Yogyakarta ). I arrived at 7 in the morning, because of my journey from Jakarta at night.
The place I went to first was Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat. Kraton is a kingdom in java and is still active now. There you can learn about the culture. The sand from Parantritis beach is very special in Kraton. Unfortunately, I did not go to the beach… After I was around Kraton, I went to lunch at the nearby gudeg yu djum
After I had my lunch I’m continually on to the Kampung Wisata Taman Sari. After that, I went to Kampoeng Cyber Yogyakarta. They say Mark Zuckerberg came to Kampoeng Cyber Yogyakarta. Afterward, I went to Terowongan Sumur Gumuling. There is a secret refugee of the sultan and Sumur Gumuling is a mosque during the government of Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwana I dan II.
For dinner I recommend you Sate Klathak Pak Pong, and go to Alun Alun Kidul Yogyakarta and eat sekoteng.
Alun alun kidul had a tale to tell what is interesting. If you close your eyes and succeeded in walking over to the twin tree, something that you want will be achieved. Many succeed and also failed to, that is a funny thing to do if you go with your friends or with your family.
The second day, I went to Ratu Boko but before that, I had breakfast at Soto Batok, Ratu Boko (Javanese: Ratu Baka) or Ratu Boko Palace is an archaeological site in Java. Ratu Boko is located on a plateau, about three kilometers south of the Prambanan temple complex in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The original name of this site is still unclear, however, the local inhabitants named this site after King Boko, the legendary king mentioned in Roro Jonggrang folklore. In Javanese, Ratu Boko means “Stork King”. and we go to Puncak Pinus Becici, and Indrayanti Beach. Indrayanti beach is a beautiful beach and you can relax there.
Day three was a long day. I went to Punthuk Setumbu, Rumah Doa Bukit Rhema alias Gereja Ayam, Candi Borobudur, Kalibiru. At the end of the journey, I recommend you to go to Malioboro. This is a famous street where they are selling anything and so many batik. So if you want to buy batik come to Yogyakarta. By the way, I’m happy shopping in Malioboro and I also never forget to do some shopping in Raminten. About Rumah Doa Bukit Rhema – it is unique because the place is like a chicken, and in Kalibiru – if you are lucky – you can look at the Lake with a blue color.
Take a photo there and put on a big smile – you will look beautiful 🙂
And yeah… I’m not that good at talking but u can take a look at my pictures… I was so tired hahahaa. But it’s ok I love to go to Yogyakarta. Maybe I will come back to Yogyakarta again 🙂
