Most Popular New Yogyakarta Tourist Attractions April 2022

How many times have you traveled to Yogyakarta? Millions of people go to Jogja every year. First, I want to see Borobudur and Prambanan temples. Well, you’ve never been there? Yes, it’s okay too. Maybe you prefer simple things. For example, playing betting online game in hotel, breakfast gudeg is savory and sweet. Enjoy the sunset at Parangtritis Beach. Sitting on a romantic Malioboro pedestrian bench. Listen to street musicians whose voices make me mellow for some reason. “Going back to your city, there is a touch of emotion in longing…”

Oops, unknowingly you were singing in your heart. It’s okay, just keep going. After all, this weekend you are off. So, you can go directly to Jogja. Departing Friday afternoon, the evening arrived at Jogja. Just imagine. Saturday and Sunday, you can relax on the beach. Let the clear sea water caress. It feels soooooo. You can also go down underground rivers and other exciting tours. Exploring the corners of the city of Yogyakarta which is rich in cultural heritage buildings. Visiting the past at the Ullen Sentalu Museum. Find a new spirit from hundreds of tourist attractions in Jogja.

Also imagine the familiar atmosphere in the angkringan. The warmth of the ginger tea blends with the aroma of burning charcoal. It is true what a poet said, “Yogya is made of longing, going home, and angkringan.” Then you realize that this longing, this longing, is so real. Jogja is your hometown too. Your hometown is calling you to come home.
