Solo Travel Guide: 140 reviews and 476 photos

Seeing the Solonese countryside by bike had to be highlight of my trip. It was an incredible experience just to ride on a small Honda bike up the steep inclines of a mountain, 3000m above sea level. Postcard perfect scenary just whizzes me by like a green kaleidoscope while I made my way all the way to the top to see an ancient temple in the sky.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Royal and Rustic, both at the same time
  • Cons:I can't think of any! I love this place
  • In a nutshell:A better base of travel than Yogya

    The chicken looks absolutely delicious. Love treasure-hunting at flea markets too!
