Day 3 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia (season finale) - Part 1

by William Teh May. 20, 2010 6290 views

It's the final full day tour in Jogja ‘coz the flight home next day was so early, there’ll be no time for anything else. The day began with a trip to the famous Parangtritis beach, which is one of the most popular beaches in Jogja, followed by a lunch around the Kraton area. After lunch we headed to Malioboro Street for some small shopping before finally visiting the Candi Sambisari, a buried ancient Hindu temple found by some farmers while digging the soil in the padi field.

Location: Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Mount Merapi taken from outside my hotel room in the morning.

By the way, that's a bus. :D

Lotsa paddy fields along the way to Parangtritis beach.

Parangtritis beach. Beach and community on the southern coast of Yogyakarta, or otherwise Southern Central Java Location of meetings with the legendary Nyai Loro Kidul or ‘Queen of the South’. Local folklore warns visitors not to wear the colour green, or the Queen will entice the wearer into the ocean to drown. Luckily I wasn't wearing green!

Horse rides on the beach.

OK, I got bored.

Kites for sale.

Someone else got bored. :D

Plenty of coconuts there.

HjBu Lies Gudeg restaurant.

Somehow this drink got us addicted there.

That's my Gudeg lunch! Gudeg is a local delicacy and it's gravy cooked with jackfruit.

Some antiques stuffs on display in the restaurant.

Chilling out in the mall of Malioboro Street.

Malioboro Street. Mainly sells batik, t-shirts and souvenir stuffs.

Plenty of rickshaws waiting for customers.
