  • When staying in Yogyakarta Kraton or Keraton you should really pay a visit to the certainly not lacking. Not forget to do this with a guide. Trek definitely some hours for the visit. We were lucky enough to visit the complex with an Indonesian friend who could properly interpreters. So very nice conversations had with members of the Court throughout the complex walking around or sitting.
