Indonesia - A Glimpse of Yogyakarta

Yogyakarta (commonly called as Jogjakarta), one of the biggest cities in Indonesia, is famous as the country's fine art and cultural centre. This is the city to go to for those hunting for authentic batiks, mesmerising wayang kulit (shadow play) and traditional music and dance. And Yogyakarta is where we were all heading to after Borobudur.

Malioboro St., the place to shop for batiks

We took a local bus from Magelang to Yogyakarta, about 30 minutes to an hour of ride. The ride itself was entertaining. Besides the fact that it's a local bus, one without air-conditioned and crowded with locals, halfway through the journey, a few musicians boarded along the bus and started singing! Their performance was rather good and when it was over, you can tip them for it. Quite an experience, I have to say.

Like any Indonesian cities, you will see the locals playing a game of chess along the road

Once checked into the low budget hotel we booked for the night, we went to explore the city for a while. Honestly speaking, Yogyakarta is like any other Indonesian cities and when night comes, you have very little things to do. We practically just walked through every nooks and hooks, every bends and crooks, before calling it a night, resting for tomorrow's exploration.

Some sort of dessert we had along the road

Food and music is the perfect match
