Reasons To Visit Yogyakarta
Yogyakarta is one of the most popular destinations in Indonesia known for its many stunning historic monuments, temple complexes and ruins, while there are also several top-quality museums available which you must add to your itinerary like the Museum Affandi art museum and the Museum Sonobudoyo with its many ancient artefacts. You must visit at least one ancient temple, known locally as Candi, during your stay – both Candi Sambisari and Candi Kalasan are UNESCO world heritage sites but there are plenty more in the region worth seeing. Yogyakarta is also an excellent place for outdoor lovers as there are many opportunities to explore the wilderness, while those looking for a thrilling experience can enjoy river rafting down the Elo River or Progo River.
