    KRATON - Bird Market

    by livethedream Updated Dec 7, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The bird market is located about 2 blocks from the Sultan's Palace. You pass by it on the way to the Water Palace. It will be worth your while walking thru the market and watch people (and birds).

    Elephant Safari

    It's a 'must do' activity while you are there. Morning trip along the curving river, past the green rice fields, through the village of farmers and end the trip in front of Amanjiwo's lobby.
