Yogyakarta: An Experience
Start from the city

Yogyakarta, the fascinating city with its surrounding jungles, rice fi elds and mountains, lies in the heart of Indonesia’s most important ancient empires. Start with the city itself.

Visit the impressive Sultan’s Palace (the Kraton) under the watchful, but friendly eyes, of a hundred palace guards in their traditional and distinctive uniforms. Tour its bustling markets and avenues and purchase arts and crafts created by Java’s fi nest craftsmen and painters.

To learn Yogyakarta is to experience it. Head for the countryside and marvel at some of ancient Asia’s grandest wonder - the great 8th to 10th century Hindu and Buddhist temples of Prambanan, Borobudur and their subsidiary candis (temple) and shrines that dot the Javanese countryside.
