How to make your travel Yogyakarta amazing? Well, before we get into the topic, we should let you know that Yogyakarta isn’t as amazing as Bali, Lombok, or any other eastern Indonesia areas whose beautiful beaches are worshipped by true travelers. Yogyakarta keeps its uniqueness, however. The city town is crazily hectic.
Yogyakarta and the youth
It has hundreds of colleges where students from all over Indonesia come to study. That’s why Yogyakarta seems to be always crowded, hectic, busy, and “young.” It becomes one part of the uniqueness then. The youth knows how to make the city looks attractive. They are creative agent who takes part in coloring the cheerful atmosphere of the city. They often hold attractive events and invite people from its surrounds to come.
Yogyakarta is a kingdom. It has a king, palace, forts, and many other traditional establishments. Their king is crowned as the governor of Yogyakarta. The king doesn’t only govern administratively, but also lead the maintenance of the Javanese arts and cultures in the region. Javanese artists are everywhere. Traditional dancing performance is held often at certain spots.
