Trips and Itineraries for Kraton
My first trip overseas: why I loved and hated it (yep!)
If you're in your late twenties (oh lord!)...
Enough with Bali. There are 18,000 other islands in Indonesia and they are equally gorgeous!
Things to see in Yogyakarta: The Borobodur ruins, the ancient temples of Prambanan, the city life in Yogyakarta and the Kraton Palace complex....

Yogja is also known for gudeg, a dish that's traditional and typical to Yogja. If you think of sushi when you think of Japan, think of gudeg when you think of Jogja. Gudeg is made by boiling young, unripe jackfruit for a few hours with coconut milk and palm sugar. It's an acquired taste I must say. Some people love it. As for me, I'm pretty impartial. But if you're in Jogja, you must give it a try! We hired a driver and he brought us to Jalan Wijilan, which is an entire street of gudeg stalls. He told us they're all pretty good, so we just stopped at the first one. Here's a picture of our gudeg! It's served with hot krecek (cow skin), telur pindang (egg), tahu and tempe bacem (soya cake), ayam opor or bacem (chicken), and areh gurih (coconut milk dressing). [source] The gudeg is the flaky looking thing 2nd from the left. I don't eat beef, so I told the shopkeeper to skip the krecek (pictured here to the right side of the egg).
