Arrive in Jakarta and continue your direct flight to Yogyakarta. Upon arrival in Yogyakarta airport, meet your local tour leader and driver and transfer to your hotel for some rest. This evening, depending on arrival time, we have a special signature program in store. To most travelers Yogyakarta is known as the cultural center of Java, but Yogya also has a lot to offer for the food enthusiast! Start walking from Tugu Monument or hop on a becak (pedicab) and see traditional and modern angkringan (foodstalls) along the way. Head to the area famous for kopi joss, coffee with a brick of burning hot charcoal! After this you’re ready to continue by becak to soak up the hustle and bustle of JalanMalioboro. You will then continue to the alun- alun (square) south of the kraton (palace) where you can try the legendary walk through two waringin trees (banyan trees) while blindfolded. Afterwards continue to the Wijilan area to sample different kinds of Yogya’s famous dish gudeg (jackfruit curry). These were just starters, so to wrap up this culinary experience we’ll finish at one of the famous angkringan restaurants popular with students and families alike. Here you can choose from dozens of freshly made dishes cooked up in front of you. Wash it all down with some flavorful and colorful drinks like wedanguwuh (red herbal drink) or wedangjahe (ginger tea) to round up your culinary Yogya experience!
