WHERE TO STAY IN YOGYAKARTA

Yogyakarta is a backpacker’s haven, it has a range of guesthouses and hotels with cheap rates.  A popular backpacker area is Sosrowijayan, and most of the cheap accommodations called losmen is situated in Gang I and Gang II, a maze of alleys. This backpacker street is conveniently located near Yogyakarta Train Station and walking distance to Malioboro Street, the shopping mecca of Yogyakarta. This is where I stayed when I first solo backpacked Yogyakarta back in 2010 and on my recent trip, I went back there alone to check how it looks like now. The area is pretty safe, though it’s a bit dark at night, because generally, the locals living here are quite protective of the tourists. Watch out for my YouTube video about it.

Another popular area is Jalan Prawirotaman with a wealth of mid-range to cheap guesthouses as well as a growing number of boutique hotels.

RAMAYANA BALLET

Needless to say, the show rendered me speechless!
