Solo

Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Java  /  Central Java  /  Solo
Traditional Javanese culture thrives in the city of Solo (also called Surakarta), from ancient arts such as wayang puppetry, dangdut music, and Solonese dance, to the production of batik, a traditional patterned fabric. Old markets operate much as they have done for generations, and warungs (small family-run businesses) prepare the whole gamut of Javanese cuisine around the clock. Grand historical buildings and palaces reveal Solo's former role as the seat of power in Central Java, and many ornate temples and mosques can be found in and around the city. Round out an active holiday in Solo with excursions into the surrounding, jungle-clad mountains. In the build up to your vacation in Solo, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Indonesia vacation planner.
