Lets talk about vacation.
Have you go to Indonesia?
What’s come to your mind?
Jakarta? Bali? Only those cities?
Okay, I share you one of favorite cities by domestic and foreign, called Yogyakarta.
It’s amazing cities, or local peoples called “cities of student”, real ethnic from Java, jewel of Java.
Similar with Bali, this city (not island), have a mountain, a beach, traditional culture, rising development city, very nice people, various activities.
Plus, cheap price :).
Oh, one more thing, this cities is one of the best for street food and night travel activities.
I really like this place (beside this place is near my hometown 🙂 ).
Please share with me, how many cities that have those things above?
Not many, isn’t it.
On this time, we focus on one best spot and place, called Ullen Sentalu Museum.
I have been visit here many times.
It’s true if Trip Advisor call this place as a best museum in Indonesia.
I have been around in many cities in Indonesia, and never found any good museum, as good as Ullen Sentalu.
Its located 30 minutes driving from the cities, not far.
The ticket is USD 3 for local people.
When you enter the room, its like “back to past”.
You will see a very beautiful ethnic of old Java with royal aura, many kind of batik, and many more.
Also, you can “selfie” with background of mountain merapi.
I share you some of pic from the museum.
If you wanna come to visit Indonesia, just let me now :).
You can find another article, as follow.
Located on Jalan Boyong at the Kaliurangmountain resort, this gem of a museum relates the story of the ancient and Modern Mataram kingdom, whose descendents are today the Sultan of Yogyakarta, the Sunan of Solo and the royal Houses of Mangkunegaran and Paku Alaman.
The displays, lighting and guides of this museum are excellent and provide that particular aura of being in the presence of Javanese royalty imbued with a long tradition and mysticism enhanced by its location that looks out to the mystical Mt. Merapi.
Upon arrival, visitors are led through a small path to a cave called the Gua Selo Giri where visitors hear the history of the House of Mataram. Then follows an open area called Kampung Kambang, which has a floating hall comprising 5 rooms. Called the Life of Tineke (a girl’s name) together they depict the life of a young princess. The rooms are filled with amazing batiks from various regions, preparations for a royal wedding, to the story of a real princess who rejected a polygamous marriage.
After more display areas the last is the Ruang Budaya, or the Cultural Hall, where visitors will find the story of Javanese classical dancers and a number of paintings of royal dignitaries.
At the end of the tour, visitors are given a refreshing and reinvigorating herbal drink and are then free to stroll or sit around a landscaped royal garden to enjoy the breathtaking panorama on Mt. Merapi.
On your next visit to Indonesia do make it a point to visit Yogyakarta and the superb Ullen Sentanu Museum on the slopes of mystical Mt. Merapi.
