Group classes

by Dutchmoscow

Hi there,

I was hoping to study Indonesian in Yogyakarta for two weeks in the beginning of may. Does anyone know any group lessons going on in this period? I am an absolute beginner.

Don't know about lessons in Yogyakarta, but you might consider a course of Satya Wacana University in Salatiga.
See my tip: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/c8969/126ff3/4/?o=1&i=1
including an email-address where you can make further enquiries.

Salam,
Theo

Travel Tips for Yogyakarta

the land of friendlines

by RedDevil.Ril

I went to Jogjakarta last year in 2005 right after the ramadhan season(around november). Taking the Lion Air from Jakarta was the only option as all other modes of transport was already full. I recommened you take the bus instead from Jakarta to Jogja and stop by the beautiful city of Bandung where you can get really cheap yet pretty handicrafts before proceeding to Jogja.

I would recommend that should one go and visit Jogja that they do not miss the special offerings on one of the most alive streets in Asia. The Marlioboro street. You can get exotic souvineer items, the cheap yet tasty Javanese cruisine (yes, some may discourage you from eating along these sidewalk stores whereby you sit on the floor and eat but it is clean dont worry) and also a whole load of pirated movies and cd's. There you can also find alot of batik and cheap travelling clothes. The friendlinest of the people of jogja willl touch many a traveller. The driver who took my family around the city from our hotel in the city to Borobudur, Prambanan and Mount Merapi where we enjoyed breath taking views of the volcanic legend, apologised at the end of our journey for any shortcomings in his driving or difficulty in communicating with us. This is not something you can find anywhere else in the world. Its small actions like this that we should cherish and i do hope, god forbid the recent earthquake and the eruption of Merapi has not destroyed the city or its wonderful people.

Follow the kids

by KChiong

As i was not sure of the entrance to Kraton and Taman Sari (On a saturday morning) I decided to follow the students on a school excursion. No fuss and no need to ask around. Beware of some friendly locals who wants to show you the way. You may end up in Balik shops. For information, Kraton is closed on Friday.

No crossing legs

by Goldenboy

How can I know many local customs on Javanese culture? Simply cause I grew up in a strong-holders of Javanese culture, which have such a thought as a royal family. In fact, I don’t really agree with all that after all.
Again, it is recommended when dealing with elders. We are not supposed to cross our leg. Elders will put this as if it is an impolite attitude.

Pampered Pets in Yogya

by bpacker

Cockerals rests in ratten baskets by the sidewalks. Their colourful tail feathers peek out their ratten carriers. These highly-prized birds are reared only for fighting and are pampered by their owners. Other than the occasional stroking, these birds are taken for walks and placed along the sidewalks so that they are constantly amused by the noise of street activity.

Indonesian Prawn Crackers

by xuessium

Most of the shops selling food items/candies along Jalan Malioboro will sell packs of ready-to-fry prawn crackers. As it is, each cracker is grey in colour. Once you get home, dry it in the sun first to get rid of moisture (or the cracker will not fry evenly), then thrown them into a deep-fryer and watch them balloon up into those wonderful pinkish pieces of crunchy prawn crackers! Great as a snack. There are several brands - very competitive. A box should cost you between 15000-30000 Rupiahs.
