Introduction
many call this the city of students, city of culture, never-ending Asia... The best thing to do here is to explore more of Jogja. Famous as the place of Javanese culture, you can go to the sultan's palace called Kraton. Once you go to Kraton, don't forget to stop by Ngasem Bird Market and Water Castle (built during Dutch colonialism). The most famous tourist destination in Jogja is Malioboro Road. There you can buy Javanese goodies from clothes to souvenirs like silver or woodcraft. Besides exploring the culture, you may go to pottery center of Bantul or see the silver crafts at the Kotagedhe residence. Longing for the beach? You could go to the beach of Yogyakarta, Parangtritis (abbr. Paris) beach, Kukup, Sundak, Wediombo, etc. Most of the beaches have big waves, and you're not allowed to swim there. Be careful if you're holding your wallet. Don't put your wallet in your pant’s pocket because there are many pickpockets in public buses. The people of Jogja are friendly. They are eager to talk to and help you if you need it. Be prepared for their directions, because most Jogjakarta people prefer to use south, north, east, and west instead of just right and left! This is one of things that confused me. When you want to bargain at the market, offer half of the original price. When they don't make a deal with your bargain, just leave them. They might call you back again for the best price. And don't forget to bring mineral water.

Top Things to See and Do
Malioboro Road, Kraton (Sultan's Palace), Taman Sari, Ngasem Bird Market, Javanese Performance at Kraton every Sunday, Affandi Museum, Kaliurang, Parangtritis Beach, etc.

Lots of famous cultural buildings, such as Kraton (Sultan's palace), Hindu's temple (Prambanan), Budha's temple (Borobudur), traditional markets, Yogyakarta monuments. Lots of hand made souvenirs such as batik, silver, leather puppets. Lots of great natural objects for those who like outdoor stuff such as mountains (Merapi, Merbabu), rivers, waterfalls, beautiful beaches. As a conclusion, you will get lots of unforgettable moments when you visit my place!! You will also experience the real hospitality of Javanese people.
