Best nightclubs in Special Region of Yogyakarta

“Don’t tell us you’ve been to Yogyakarta unless you’ve visited Borobudur, Prambanan and Merapi. Although you might not have time for all three in one day, it’s definitely worth the effort to at least experience one of these amazing sceneries. No matter what you choose, make sure the weather is on your side, and enjoy these views at their fullest”

Police Station
“Literally in the heart of the city this living palace called Kraton is not a museum, part of it is open to the public. You don't need to book a tour. You can buy tickets at the entrance, quite often older man dressed in traditional palace costumes (the real thing mind you), offer to walk you around. It is not much of a help, but it is their way to make bit of extra income and they are very proud of this place. When you are done or want to continue by yourself you say many thanks (terima kashi) give discreetly whatever you like to give. Let your heart speak. It is an interesting visit. The Sultan is still there, the only Royal family in the Republic with the special status Yogya has. You see carriages, antique cars and the place breathes a special atmosphere.”

Mediterranean Restaurant
“My favorite - everything fresh - even mayonnaise made a la minute - my choice is always a Ceasar Salad: the best really. Good wine by the caraf and reasonably priced. Run by Kamil who brings the best of France to this place. Also they sell home made French bread. Lunch and dinner. When we go for dinner we go at 5, than all the tables free. Have a drink and appetizer and we still walk out 3 hours later. Come at 7 you'll be waiting for a table. Pass by earlier in the day and make a reservation for a time that is better for you;”
