Latest Update: On 26 May 2006, a powerful earthquake hit Yogyakarta at dawn after the wake of the volcanic eruption at Mount Merapi. Since then, Yogya has gotten back on her knees and dusted off the remants of the disaster. Her buildings are repaired and some of her tourist attractions are now open to the public. If you're coming to this royal town, click here to check if the place you're going to is open to the public.
My Thanks to my faithful readers for reading my yet-complete pages. It's taking a long time to construct as I'm doing my Solo, Wonosobo and Dieng pages simultaneously. Honestly speaking Yogya exceeded my expectations. I love this place, the culture and the people. I will return some day with my husband and share with him my love for this place.
- Pros:Wonderful Temples, Palaces, Delicious Food
- Cons:Quite an understatement but Earthquake-Prone!
- In a nutshell:Quite the haven for an Indiana Jones wannabe
