Yogyakarta Local Custom Tips by Rastarigo

Yogyakarta Local Customs: 26 reviews and 41 photos


squat-eating in a lesehan, warung or sipping your ice-cold street beverage, one local or a group will serenade you, from local folk tunes to beatle hits for some rupiah. they unhesitatingly warble out a tune right in front of you a cappella or in the accompaniment of native musical instruments. some are really good they have perfected the art of serenading. well it is a subtle way of begging. at least they make an effort, rather than just sticking their empty palms for alms.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
