What is the most typical ‘Khiri Travel’ activity in Jogja?
Oh, that must be the Jogja Foodie Tour (street food). This is a walking tour where you explore the traditional and modern angkringan (food stalls) of Yogyakarta, and discover popular treats and places where locals like to hangout. There is also a short Becak ride and guests love it to get away from the standard tourist attractions and ‘mingle’ with the locals. Every time is different, and I never get bored with it.
Why should people visit Yogyakarta on the island of Java?
Yogyakarta (or Jogja as the locals call it) is a great combination between history, culture, people and traditions. and of course great food!
