Yogyakarta ist einfach wunderschön. Es ist noch keine Grossmetropole wie Jakarta, sondern noch sehr traditionell. An vielen Orten fährt man noch mit “Becak” (weiter unten mehr dazu) oder man nimmt eine Kutsche, wenn man nur eine kurze Distanz zurücklegen möchte. Es gibt viele Mythen um den Vulkan Merapi und den Strand von Parangtritis mit seinem schwarzen Sand. Es gibt sogar ein bekanntes Lied das Yogyakarta heisst. Ihr gelangt dazu wenn ihr auf diesen Link klickt. Das Lied ist zwar schon ziemlich alt, aber ich finde es grossartig 😀
Yogyakarta is soo beautiful. It’s not a big metropolitan City like Jakarta, it’s still very traditional. In many places you still use the “becak” for a short distance There are many myths around the volcano Merapi and the beach of Parangtritis with its black sand. There is even a popular song called “Yogyakarta”-> click on this link The song is quite old, but in my opinion it’s still amazing 🙂
Malioboro, the most famous Street in Yogja.
I fell in love with this cool hat, while we were Shopping some Souvenirs 😀
Cute bowls made of Coconut
I just had to buy one. These unique cases are handmade of real magahoni Wood.
Something very typical for Yogja-> “Lesehan” You sit on the floor to eat your meal.
Yogja is very famous for their creative Batik Art. Here we visited a Batikshop near the Kraton.
I bought one ” Merapi Volcano” Batik but in a creamy colour.
Streets in Yogja
In Indonesia they sell lots of Food on the streets in this mobile Stores.
My Mom and Me having fun on our “Becak” Ride
This is a traditional ” Becak” It is basically a Bike with a Seat ( for max. 2 persons) in the front.
Here is one with an engine 😀 Very useful for older Drivers, because it is a quite exhausting Job.
Of course we had to visit the Kraton of Yogyakarta. It’s the Palace where the Sultan lives until today.
Yeeah Buddy….my new friend in the Kraton Palace.
It is so beautiful, not so mawkish like in a Princessfairytale, but still very charming and precious.
By the way, I can’t remember why I was laughing there :’D
The faithful servants of the Sultan.
The huge inner Courtyard
Parangtritis Beach- It’s not allowed to swim here because of the dangerous sea-flow. As you can see the sand is black.
Quad riding on the Beach, what an amazing experience 😀
We stayed in the beautiful Ambarrukmo Hotel. The stuff was so friendly and we had a really good time there. Especially the Breakfast Buffet; it was so delicious 😀
too cute -> all the towels were folded like animals 😀
The View from the Lounge
After 3 beautiful days in Yogja we headed over to Bandung. We took the Train.
It took us 7 hours from Yogja to Bandung, but it was a comfortable journey and we got to see the beautiful landscapes of Indonesia.
