Join us in the bustling flow of Yogyakarta, a city that keeps alive a sense of spirit and rhythm from the serenity of its temples to the energy of its streets.
The Indonesian city of #Yogyakarta rests in central Java, between the cool breezes of the Indian Ocean and the steamy breath of volcanoes.
#Vacation here and join the kings, sultans, artists and the devout that have called Yogyakarta home since the 8th-century. Venture through this gentle epicenter of Javanese classical culture and education. Just 10 miles to the north east of the city, venture back to the eighth and ninth centuries, to a time when Buddhism and Hinduism vied for the kingdom’s hearts and minds. Or choose to #visit Prambanan, the heart of a Hindu temple network that stretches for miles, and Borobudur, the world’s largest Buddhist temple.
#Explore the rural back roads and meet the villagers who live calmly and creatively within the shadow of Mount Merapi, one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia. Despite the tremors of our unsteady, ever-changing world, Yogyakarta is a place that steadies the spirit, and inspires the soul.
For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.
