Travel Tips for visiting Yogyakarta

Yogyakarta is a famous city on the island of Java

Yogyakarta is a real stopover city to visit the temples around
(Borobodur, Prambanan ) but also an ideal starting point for climbing Mount Bromo and Kawah Ijen. 

Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat, the official name of Yogyakarta in Javanese. Along with Bali, it is the "highlight" of the trip for most visitors. Everything is refined: the majesty of the volcanoes, the nobility of the characters, the delicacy of gestures and postures. The nonchalance or the apparent insouciance of the inhabitants contrasts with the melancholy or the Sundanese affliction.

Yogyakarta, or "Yogya", is the capital of Central Java. Much less stifling than Jakarta, this city welcomes many students and represents a huge cultural center.
If you spend a few days in this city, you will be able to visit several artists' workshops, puppet theaters, as well as the Kraton Yogyakarta, the former palace of the sultans.
There are also schools of ballet, poetry, and music. 
Access also has a half-day excursion to Borobudur, one of the largest Buddhist temples in the world. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Hindu temple Prambanan.

Beringharjo Market

The Beringharjo market is a huge covered market in Yogyakarta where you can find everything: a huge choice of batik (printed clothes and fabrics), spices, fruits and vegetables, wicker baskets, trinkets...It is open in the morning only (from 8 am), and you can see many locals who come to shop (from buying chili to wedding dresses)

Sultan's Palace (Kraton)

A sultan still resides in Yogyakarta. He is the governor of Central Java and has a large palace in the city center, which is open to visitors every morning. It is a beautiful place, but you should not expect anything lavish, the whole thing remains rather simple. Inside, objects and photos are exposed, generally without much explanation.

Frequently Asked Questions by Travelers planning a trip to Yogyakarta


Most people stop in Yogyakarta to visit two UNESCO-listed temples, Prambanan and Borobudur.

And while it's true that these are two must-sees, there's more to Yogyakarta than that! The city itself, with its ancient palaces and its lively downtown area, is worth spending at least a day there.


The Borobudur temple, built in the 8th and 9th centuries and currently classified by UNESCO, is the largest Buddhist temple in the world! Its impressive structure is covered with beautiful bas-reliefs and statues. It is really one of the unmissable visits in Java
