Jogja things to do are the things that this article will discuss. The Special Region of Yogyakarta, which is located just south of the Province of Central Java, is actually an interesting place which is full of amazing things you can do. Definitely, this is one of the cities in the world that worth visiting once in your entire lifetime! Below are the Yogyakarta things to do that you might want to know.
- Exploring the Royal Palace
The first thing that you can do in the city of Yogyakarta is that you can visit the place which is more commonly known here as the Kraton Kasultanan Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat- which can be translated as the Royal Palace of Yogyakarta. Simply known as Keraton, this place is where the Royal Family of the Sultanate of Yogyakarta resides. There are two ways to enter the area, the first one is through the Tepas Keprajuritan and it functions just kind of like a museum since you can find several gamelans (Javanese musical instruments), several Javanese traditional clothes, some dioramas, as well as a photo gallery that are on display here. The second way is through the Tepas Pariwisata, which is actually a complex where the Abdi Dalem (Royal Servants) reside and you can meet some of them here.
- Visiting Candi Borobudur
Now, the second one of the Jogja things to do is visiting the largest Buddhist Temple in the world- the Borobudur Temple. Alright, we all are aware that the temple is actuated in the city of Magelang rather than in Yogyakarta; however, most people who pay a visit in Yogyakarta will almost always have a plan to visit this magnificent site and it is not too far from the region, anyway since it only takes roughly forty minutes of journey to visit the temple from the region! Well, around here, you will be able to figure out the grace of the temple which is already 1.194 years old since it was first finished in 825 AD.
Definitely, the temple is interesting. However, it also takes time to get around the area since it is simply very large. So, if you wish for a practical way to go around the area, you might want to take the VW Safari Magelang service which is available to visit several interesting areas and tourist attractions which are available around the temple. The tour starts from Punthuk Setumbu (a beautiful hill that you can visit to enjoy a sunrise) and ends in Pawon Temple. Well, those are the best Jogja things to do!
