5 DAYS ITINERARY IN YOGYAKARTA - FOR FIRST-TIMER

12:30 PM


If you've never visited Yogyakarta before, this post might be for you. As you can see from  the title, in this post, I want to recap my 5 days Yogyakarta itinerary. In this itinerary, most of the destinations are popular for first-timer. I made different blog posts on each day, click the link if you want to know more...

DAY 1 : Train ride - Malioboro Street
WHERE TO EAT?
Since it was our first day, and we were a bit tired from 8 hours train ride, we decided to have our dinner at Malioboro street. There are many food tents, most of them are selling the same type of food, Javanese food with tourist price = expensive. How does it taste like? Good but nothing too special.

DAY 2 : Taman Sari - Fort Vredeburg - Beringharjo Market
WHERE TO EAT?
Lunch : There are few food tents near Taman Sari, my favorite is Pecel MakNem. It was like the best Pecel I've ever had. Pecel is simply a traditional Javanese salad, consisting of mixed vegetables in peanut sauce dressing.

Dinner : House of Raminten
House of Raminten is serving Javanese food with reasonable price and the best thing is...you can come here anytime, yes to 24 hours service with cozy cafe vibes. Here is a bonus picture of me posing with a big bowl of es dawet/cendol.

DAY 3 : Goa Pindul - Oyo River - Indrayanti Beach
WHERE TO EAT?
There are many restaurants alongside the beach.

DAY 4 : Borobudur (Magelang) - Alun-Alun Kidul 
part 1 






WHERE TO EAT?
Tired and hungry after walking around Borobudur? You will find several food tents on your way out serving all traditional food.

part 2





WHERE TO EAT?
Alun-Alun Kidul located not to far from Malioboro, so we decided to eat in Malioboro again but this time round we were trying a popular food tent named Terang Bulan (located in front of Terang Bulan Batik shop).

DAY 5 : Keraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat 
WHERE TO BUY TRADITIONAL SNACKS?
On our last day, we decided to visit one of the popular place to buy traditional snacks in Yogyakarta. One of our favorite is Bakpia Kurnia Sari. Ask your driver or hire a taxi to take you there. For taxi service, my recommendation goes to taxi 373737. Nice service with fast booking and good drivers.
