  • Indonesians love owning a bird in a cage at home. It is therefore very interesting to visit Jogyakarta bird market. Of course, sometimes it's heart-wrenching to see several birds in the same cage or see wild birds be there but the purpose is not to judge the culture of others but to learn a little more about these people.

  • Go here if animal lover not to it. What you see is horrible, far too many animals crammed on top of each other. Half of the animals is on their backs. The monkeys and puppies are heartbreaking.

  • No need me to go to know that this type of "tourist attractions" are unnecessary and cruel. Exotic animals locked up, waiting for any tourist to pay for a photo with them or chicks with dyed hair who will end up being abandoned because it will grow and not to be mono. Please is our duty as tourists to promote activities and attractions that are ethical, educational, and responsible for the environment and animals. Indonesia is beautiful, full of animal life and vegetation, please contact actions so we loaded it to us. Don't go please.
