8 Fun Activities To Explore For Your First Time To Yogyakarta
Yogyakarta means “a city that is fit to prosper”. This lesser known city in Indonesia is the heart of education, classical Javanese fine arts and culture. It is only a 2 hour 10 minutes flight away from Singapore. YES!!! Really near to Singapore! Credit: GIPHY P.S. Yogyakarta is 1 hour behind Singapore time! 1. Immerse yourself in their rich culture! Credit: clumsy kristel on Flickr First up! Here in Yogyakarta you are able to see batik almost everywhere. It is a MUST to visit one of the batik factories for a tour and witness how these delicate pieces are being made by hand. Every single piece goes through a long demeaning process of construction by the staff at the factory. From dyeing the fabric to hand painting the designs and drying the cloth.
