I went there with a friend in May 2013, particularly to see the Vesak ceremony held in Borobudur temple. We also ended up going around museums and whatnot. We went to Sonobudoyo Museum, Monjali (Monumen Jogja Kembali), Affandi Museum, and the Tamansari complex. We also went to Alun-alun Selatan and tried the game in which we had to walk pass the two big trees with eyes blindfolded. We had a chance to watch a traditional Javanese puppet show over at Sonobudoyo Museum at night time, all thanks to a pedicab driver who told us about the show like two hours before it started. Yogyakarta was magical! I’d love to go there again and just explore things. Since there were so many interesting things to see, I’m going to divide this particular trip into two posts: the going about town and the Vesak ceremony. Enjoy!
