Bestplacetovisitinindonesia; Move Diary + View Indonesia: Yogyakarta Girls Trip

Actually, it’s almost 2 years agone since I went for this trip, but I simply got a peril to portion it with you lot all. In conjunction of International Women’s Day this month, I’m sharing my outset girls solely trip to Yogyakarta. For my readers too subscribers exterior Republic of Indonesia in all probability are non familiar with this city. Actually, this metropolis is pretty pop with Western tourists. Usually, they came to Yogyakarta to come across the famous Prambanan Temple equally good equally Borobudur Temple. Yogyakarta is also famous for its’ Batik too their distinctive Kingdom culture. There is 2 cities inwards Republic of Indonesia that are given a special management authorization yesteryear the regime of Republic Republic of Indonesia which is Yogyakarta too Aceh. Yogyakarta all the same uphold to Sultan (King) authority. Beside that, Yogyakarta also known for its friendliness to both locals too foreigners. Like Bali, Yogyakarta is also pop for foreigners, thus most of them could beak English linguistic communication too.

Anyways, for the terminal 20 years of my life equally an Indonesian, it was my outset fourth dimension visiting Yogyakarta. Unlike my friends, they had their schoolhouse trips to Yogyakarta before. I went to Yogyakarta with my academy friends equally our refreshing trip earlier all the madness for graduation ahead of us. As usual, I made the video type for this series, thus cheque it out here. The video has many missing footage because I didn’t took all the footage with my phone, but I tried my best to consummate the whole floor inwards this weblog post. So, hither it is our girls adventure to Yogyakarta!


Instead riding an overnight train, nosotros took an early on flying to Yogyakarta. We wanted to go adventurous too receive got a semi-backpacking trip, but the cost isn’t that inexpensive too took much to a greater extent than time. Arrived at Adi Sucipto International Airport 1,5 hours later. We rented machine for transporting during the trip. At the fourth dimension nosotros went there, Uber were non existed yet, but Uber is operating inwards Yogyakarta now. We stayed at Novotel Yogyakarta close the airport. After checking-in too few remainder nosotros caput out for tiffin at Gudeng Yu Djum.

Gudeg is the instance nutrient from Yogyakarta. Not all people liked this food, but for the locals it is a pop too their favourite food. Honestly, neither of us liked Gudeg because it gustation too sweetness for us. We are looking for a saltier selection too nosotros flora two. It is non equally pop equally Yu Djum’s one, but my friends prefer that one. Yu Djum’s Gudeg is real pop both inwards too exterior Yogyakarta. 

The Royal Pool
After a picayune disappointed lunch, nosotros headed to Taman Sari Water Castle few minutes away from our tiffin spot. Visitor demand to purchase entrance ticket which cost for Rp 5,000 for locals too Rp 15,000 for foreigners (2016). Taman Sari Water Castle was a house for the Sultan (King) watches his concubines receive got bath. The virile somebody monarch chooses a women from that puddle to go his queen. It used to receive got a lot of water, but present the H2O are non equally much equally it used to be. The house is a famous spot for both tourist too locals to receive got photos. We got some skillful photos thank you lot to Pak Yadi, our local direct that nosotros met unintentionally. If you lot happened to become there, discovery Pak Yadi to direct you lot to a greater extent than or less the Taman Sari addition Cyber Village.

An artsy wall at Cyber Village
While going to a greater extent than or less all the corners of Taman Sari, nosotros happened to see Cyber Village. For some people it mightiness non thus special to go a tourist site. But, the fact is Mark Zuckerberg see this hamlet during his honeymoon, I gauge because it is a special village. This hamlet is the outset hamlet inwards Yogyakarta that utilize meshing inwards their daily activities. There are non much villages similar that inwards Indonesia, that’s why it makes the hamlet unique. 

Ratu Boko Temple entrance side
 We spent to a greater extent than or less 3 hours there, too then nosotros headed to Ratu Boko Temple. This temple is non equally famous equally Prambanan Temple but, it is a skillful spot to come across sunset. Also, this temple has became famous because of “Ada Apa Dengan Cinta? 2” motion ikon was shot there. If you lot desire to come across the sunset here, you lot receive got to go at that spot earlier 3PM because, they apply dissimilar cost for sunset viewing.

Before heading dorsum to the hotel, nosotros had an early on dinner at the famous street nutrient stall, named Special Bakmi dan Nasi Goreng Pak Pele. We ordered diverse of nutrient like, fried rice, Javanese noodles, too much more. The i that left us with neat impression is the Javanese noodles too the fried rice. Later at night, nosotros ordered McDonald’s too some local delicacies via Gojek. We tried the salty Gudeg, Pak Yadi recommended. As you lot tin come across inwards the video, my friend said it was thus delicious. Just thus you lot know, nosotros are ever hungry whenever nosotros travel. So, pardon our continuous eating. LOL.


We went for a picayune adventure on the 2nd day. We went for cave tubing at Kalisuci, Bantul. We hired a driver because nosotros went exterior the metropolis to practise that. Before that, nosotros stopped yesteryear at Soto Kadipiro for brunch. It was also a pop nutrient stall inwards Yogyakarta but, I was a chip skeptical nigh the food. It was challenge for me to attempt novel nutrient I never knew before. I practise similar Soto, but non all types of it. 

Soto is an Indonesian soup made of chicken or beef stock. Some types used herbs or kokosnoot milk to add together to a greater extent than flavour. I liked Soto with kokosnoot milk, but non the other one. But actually, the i Soto Kadipiro served was a chip different. It was to a greater extent than similar a chicken soup too genuinely it gustation quite good. 

There are a lot of activities to practise inwards Yogyakarta, peculiarly inwards Bantul area. It has neat sceneries, fun adventures, too much more. We tried cave tubing this fourth dimension too It was our outset time. Kalisuci is pretty famous to practise cave tubing. The electrical flow was pretty squeamish too the cave is non equally unsafe equally I imagined. You tin come across bats within the cave too also experience inwards peace at the same time. There volition go a direct for you lot during the whole experience. So, you lot tin experience at ease. The security was pretty good. They volition give you lot helmets, life jackets, too human knee protector. At that time, I didn’t brought GoPro so, nosotros rent it from the operator. No demand to worry if you lot don’t receive got one. Even though the photos too the footage was non equally skillful equally you lot mightiness expected it to be, but it is pretty decent to receive got a documentation of it. 

Kicking off the thrill
Finally nosotros are out from the cave

My friends + My friends' friends

Let's appreciate this serenity

After a fun yet tiring adventure, nosotros headed dorsum to town. We decided to see Malioboro Street. It was a principal street of Yogyakarta City too a must visit. The street was total of shops selling Batik too other souvenirs. You tin also ride Andong, Yogyakarta’s Equus caballus cart from this street. FYI, the cost tin go pretty expensive, thus if you lot genuinely desire to ride it practise negotiate with the driver or nosotros called it Pak Kusir inwards Indonesian.

We couldn’t discovery a pretty skillful Batik or other souvenirs, thus nosotros went for dinner. We ate roadside nutrient stall called Nasi Goreng Beringharjo Pak Tedjo. Beringharjo is a scream of a marketplace actually. So, this nutrient stall is located inwards a marketplace expanse but, it opens at the flush only. They sell fried rice, noodles, too other typical Indonesian food. The most pop card is pork fried rice. We tried too it was pretty decent. Btw, the nutrient cost inwards Yogyakarta is unquestionably cheap. We fifty-fifty don’t know how to split upwardly bills because it is quite cheap! Well, compared to Djakarta or Bali. 

Pinocchio upwardly inwards the air

Ciao! adoriamo il gelato ๐Ÿ’•

Then nosotros caput for dessert. The most pop dessert store inwards Yogyakarta is genuinely Tempo Gelato, but nosotros flora this dessert store on Zomato with a pretty high rating too called, Ciao Gelato too decided to tried it out. They receive got a cute interior pattern too a alive music. The vocalist receive got a pretty squeamish vocalisation too skillful vocal lists. The sound organization was pretty good, thus it doesn’t wound your ears. Then nosotros went dorsum to hotel for a rest. I remembered nosotros watched “Descendant of the Sun” on local channel that twenty-four hours lol. random. I know.


Finally, I got a peril to receive got a breakfast inwards the hotel that day. We took plow for having breakfast inwards the hotel because the gratuitous breakfast solely valid for 2 person. We headed to Mangunan expanse inwards Bantul to see pino wood too fruit garden there. The conditions was pretty mutual coldness to a greater extent than or less that expanse too it was nice. We drive at that spot yesteryear ourselves (without driver) too with the faith of Google Maps.

Before visiting the 2 places, nosotros headed to Mbah Cemplung Fried Chicken for brunch. Because non all of us receive got breakfast every day, thus nosotros had an early on tiffin too slow breakfast. Their card specialty is Javanese fried chicken too it does gustation good!

Pathway to happiness
Let's express joy out loud, girls!
Ticket cost to the Pine Forest

Then nosotros headed to Mangunan Pine Forest. We took a pretty instagramable photos at the pino forest. The pino wood is pretty famous inwards the meshing world, but nosotros flora out the house is quite too crowded too zip special. After the pino forest, nosotros headed to the fruit garden close the pino forest. The fruit garden is also non thus special because nosotros didn’t come across whatever fruits there. But, this house a receive got skillful scenery. I apologized for non taking ikon of it, but you lot tin come across it inwards the video. My documentation for this trip is pretty bad because I intend it is easier to receive got it with i telephone too and then nosotros could portion it. But inwards the end, I’m having a difficult fourth dimension to scream upwardly all the details too the sequence of this trip now.

On our agency back, nosotros were almost trapped at that spot because nosotros don’t receive got plenty gasoline. We decided to plow off the air conditioner too rush to the nearest gas station. So, you lot should cheque your gasoline conditions whenever you lot are going exterior the city, girls! It volition go much problem for you lot to discovery gasoline at the countryside, peculiarly inwards Indonesia. Anyways, nosotros headed dorsum to the metropolis after that. When nosotros arrived, nosotros had our dinner at Baso Ito. Baso is Indonesian meatball. Baso Ito specialty is their fried pork meatball. It is a must attempt menu. The other menus were also pretty good, thus become ahead to attempt it.

Later that night, nosotros went out for dessert at Tempo Gelato. It sure a pop house for a dessert shop. It was crowded too nosotros barely acquire whatever seats! If nosotros had to compare with Ciao Gelato, they receive got a amend ambience too it was a squeamish house to sit down too relish your gelato. But inwards Tempo Gelato, you lot can’t genuinely enjoyed it at that spot because at that spot volition go other people who is hunting your seats. If you lot genuinely desire to attempt it, amend to receive got it away. Both the store receive got a similar amount of gelato variants too the texture are pretty much the same. 

Then, nosotros took a nighttime metropolis tour with Becak. It reminds me of my childhood days. When I slept over at my grandparents’ house, I used to ride Becak to become to the market. Basically, Becak is a traditional shipping inwards Republic of Indonesia too most of Southeast Asian countries had this sort of shipping too. The rider were carried with a three-wheeled cycle. Btw, the becak inwards Yogyakarta is much bigger than the i I used to ride when I was a kid. 


I intend the quaternary twenty-four hours is the most fun one. We wore a coordinated outfit this day. We were going to receive got grouping photos at Kalibiru. Before nosotros went there, nosotros had a brunch at Jejamuran


All the food's principal element is mushroom
 It was the most delicious too fulfilling brunch of the entire trip. The uniqueness of this eating spot is their card were made out of diverse of mushroom! My favourite nutrient from Jejamuran is their mushroom satay. It was delicious! The house were pretty large because they are that popular. It is a must see if you lot become to Yogyakarta. 

While waiting for our turn
May our friendship terminal to our quondam days!

I seem skillful on this photo

Inspired yesteryear "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" motion ikon
Arrived at Kalibiru, nosotros had to hold off for an hr to acquire our turn. Kalibiru is an amazing house to come across scenery. The must practise inwards hither is to receive got a ikon at a something similar a tree house. information technology WAS LIT! You could acquire your instagram shot hither too nosotros decided to practise our grouping photograph here. 

After the “photoshoot”, nosotros went dorsum to the city. Arrived at the city, nosotros had our dinner at La Pergola. It is a lit Italian restaurant. This is the most expensive nutrient nosotros ate inwards Yogyakarta. But the nutrient is amazing. Delicioso, I could say. Though I couldn’t consume equally appetizing equally I used to be, it was indeed a comfort nutrient for me. Maybe pizza, pasta, too salad is my comfort food. LOL. 

Odong-Odong riding
Back at the hotel nosotros took some rest. Then, nosotros headed out (again) because it is our terminal nighttime thus nosotros maximized our night. We surprised i of our friend at the nearest mall. After a quick celebration, nosotros headed to Alun-Alun Yogyakarta in i lawsuit again to consume at Pak Pele's stall, but it was too crowded too nosotros were non inwards the mood to eat. Instead of eating, nosotros ride Odong-Odong! You should attempt this once, whenever you lot came to Yogyakarta. Actually, inwards Djakarta too Tangerang also receive got this sort of riding, but the ambience is quite different. Odong-odong is a good decorated too lighted bicycle machine with a real loud sound organization included. You tin become to a greater extent than or less the Alun-Alun (Plaza) for xv minutes too pay for to a greater extent than or less 20,000 rupiah for i car.

After a the nighttime metropolis tour, nosotros experienced the locals’ hangout house at an Angkringan or road-side cafe. They sell finger foods till dessert equally good equally coffee, tea, too Indonesian traditional drinks. Instead of chair, they ready a rug for the client to sit down down. It is kinda unsafe genuinely too seems non thus hygienic, thus I don’t recommend foreigners to attempt it.

After having a hot tea there, nosotros went dorsum to the hotel. At the hotel, nosotros prepared for slumber too nosotros receive got a sail mask party. I brought few funny masks for my friends too receive got our pare a picayune appreciation.


Last twenty-four hours inwards Yogyakarta! We flew dorsum to Djakarta at noon, thus nosotros had a few hours to practise some shopping. We had our brunch at Li Djiong, a Chinese restaurant. Their specialty is fried pigeon. I didn’t consume whatever other poultry also chicken, thus I didn’t fancy that special menu. But for you lot who similar pigeon, become ahead an attempt it. My friend nagged us for few days to consume there.

Then nosotros headed to purchase some gifts earlier nosotros left to the airport. We bought the famous pia inwards Yogyakarta, Bakpia Pathok Kurnia Sari. FYI, at that spot are several brands selling Bakpia inwards Yogyakarta, but most of them are pretty the same, thus you lot tin select whatever you lot prefer. Bakpia is a pastry widely known inwards Southeast Asia that similar to a Moon cake. It has several fillings, similar mung beans, ruby-red beans, cheese, chocolate, etc. I prefer the dry out bakpia, but Bakpia Pathok serve a gooey bakpia instead. It’s pretty difficult to depict the pastry, but it is pretty mutual inwards Indonesia. 

It used to go a picayune pool, but at that spot is no H2O anymore

An awesome artsy Musholla (an expanse for Moslem to pray)
Before heading to the airport, nosotros came across Affandi Museum. Affandi is i of Indonesian painter. I came to acquire nigh him inwards my fine art class spell I’m inwards senior high school. He is famous for the expressionist arts too receive got a similarity with Van Gogh. I’m genuinely excited to come across the museum because I knew nigh his arts. Nowadays, people came to the museum simply to receive got instagram pictures too don’t value the exhibition there. The museum was built on his house. His grave is located inwards the museum expanse with with his married adult woman surrounded with his paintings. When I entered the gallery, I came across the ikon I saw on the meshing when I was researching for my fine art project. Seeing it inwards existent life is something amazing too reminded me how much I liked my fine art class dorsum then. If you lot are an fine art appreciator, become see this museum. It is worth your time.

To kill the time, nosotros see the nearby mall which is Lippo Mall Yogyakarta. We looked to a greater extent than or less the mall too nosotros stopped yesteryear at the nutrient courtroom too receive got a snack there. We ate Ayam Geprek too Kebab. FYI, Ayam Geprek, a fried chicken smashed with a tool too served with hot chilli too rice is the most pop nutrient correct forthwith inwards Indonesia. It was genuinely pretty nice, but I don’t acquire it why everyone opened their ain Ayam Geprek now.

Anyways, after the snack, nosotros went to the airport. It was solely xv minutes drive from the mall nosotros visited. We gave dorsum the machine keys to the rental machine rep too receive got our flying cheque in. Though, our flying got delayed for xv minutes, it was all the same a pleasant trip after all.

End of the go diary! I promise you lot enjoyed this postal service despite the lack of few scenes too bad floor telling. It’s almost 2 years since I had this trip, thus at that spot are few missing details too I’m sad nigh it too despite of that, I’m all the same posting this experience because I promise my readers flora the courage to become out the comfort zone. This month, nosotros celebrate International Women’s Day too I promise to a greater extent than women is brave to go the world. It is non ever comfortable to travel, but I collect memorable experience that gives the value of living. So, receive got a courage girls! I knew nosotros are created for something large too nosotros are also a potent beast inwards our ain ways. Happy International Women’s Day! See you lot on my side yesteryear side postal service :)
