Shopping at the oldest, traditional market at Pasar Beringharjo is a constant cultural immersion. You'll rub shoulders with the locals and get to see what the locals really buy - vegatables with dirt still on them, batik at rock bottom prices, sandal wood cushions, etc. Definitely a more enriching experience than going to the mall down the road.
