Reviewed By MarvinG57 - The Netherlands

Jogjakarta Driver I would highly recommend. As first the communication and advise for the planning went quick and smooth. Also after arrangement and confirmation an extra confirmation is given.
I had a daytrip with driver Yus. The pick up went smooth, the planned sights were awesome and the communication was excellent.
No rush and could take my time. Next to that learned a lot more of Yogyakarta, the districts and history. Awesome.
It far exceeded the expectations and would definately book a next trip again with them.
I would highly recommend Jogjakarta driver and driver Yus.

Ganjuran Church

Reviewed By MegaNainggolan

This is a roman catholic church building with a Javanese joglo house architectural style.
The building was beautifully built with intricate decoration on the pillars, ceilings, and antique lamps.
The altar, tabernacle, and all liturgical ornaments are designed in harmony with the traditional Javanese culture.
A place for devotion, meditation, and prayer to Christ the King is situated in the form of a Hindu-style temple (Candi). Inside the temple is a statue of Christ the King, artistically imagined in the form of a Javanese King costume.
A quiet and tranquil place for devoting your prayer in a spiritual journey, or simply a visit to enjoy this unique architectural feature.
Pilgrims from many distant places come to this Church, and there is a large open hall for resting, and shower rooms are available for pilgrims.

There were 6 of us, we were deliberating whether to have our driver recommend us a massage place, or the hotel spa. We decided on the hotel's spa in the end, and we weren't disappointed.
Dini, the counter staff serving us, was polite, warm, friendly and professional. When our masseurs were not ready by the appointed time (and our appointed time was barely 10 minutes from the time we walked in), she decided to treat us to some steam room goodness on the house. She also kept checking in on us from time to time to ensure we were feeling comfortable and relaxed.
All that, at a price that will be considered very competitive where we are from. Much win here. Wouldn't call it budgeted, but extreme value for money

Imogiri Pine Forest

Reviewed By tanialatinina

The location is not too far from Yogyakarta.. It's about 40 minute from Yogyakarta.
This is the place to release your stress... Take a deep breath to get fresh air... Open your lungs..
When you get to the top.. You can see the forest below.. Just like an ocean.... It's really beautiful scenery...
Just prepare your camera.. Especially for those who really like to selfie.
There is so many attractions near hutan pinus.. So you can spent the time from morning till down.

Pinus Pengger Nature Tourism

Reviewed By Harith - Sungai Petani, Kedah

The different aspect of Pengger compared to the other pine Forests in the area is that it contains few structures that are artworks. These pieces were inspired by local artist & constructed with the help of the locals. And these are playful pieces. (Entrance fee IDR 2,500; MYR 0.75)

Mangunan Fruit Farm

Reviewed By jxxxli - Singapore, Singapore

Came here as we wanted to catch the floating clouds that are highly raved online. However we didn't know that you can only catch this scene during sunrise. Visited here around 11am and it was raining so we didn't manage to see anything except for the nice view. Asked the locals there and they said that apparently you can only catch the floating clouds' scene during rainy season and sunrise when the temperature is lower. The attraction fee cost Rp.5000 per pax and it's a 2 mins drive from Jurang Tebelan.

Merapi Volcano

Reviewed By bernie47801 - Denpasar, Indonesia

Unfortunately we didn’t get to see the famous volcano due to heavy rain and clouds. You can visit the high country and spend time in teahouses and other family friendly eateries. If you only have a limited stay in Yogyakarta try and visit this location as it’s about 90 minutes away from the cbd.

Plaosan Temple

Reviewed By capturademoments - Batam, Indonesia

If you searching for alternative temples to visit, I personally recommend you to visit this temple and Ijo temple (in different area)
First, this temple is not 'commercialized' yet, so the entrance fee is so cheap (cost 3-10K rupiahs) compared with Prambanan, Borobudur and Ratu Boko (which cost 40K rupiahs for domestic/ 13 USD for foreigner)
Second, usually no crowd in here, so I found it more enjoyable.
To reach it you should use motorcycle or car, because no public transportation nearby.
Tips: No toilet or tourism center in this place. But in urgent case, there are some locals sells souvenirs, snacks and beverages but don't expect too much.(so make sure you prepare it well)
