Jogjakarta #2

Details of Fort Vredeburg

For the next day, we decided to take a stroll along Jogjakarta’s famous sight-seeing. On the first stop, we explored Malioboro Street (our recommendation is to walk down the road to the end of the street because there’s a lot of street vendors selling traditional and unique stuff). At the end of Malioboro, we visited Fort Vredeburg for the first time, it became a museum that filled with dioramas and replicas of Indonesia’s history. The things we love about Fort Vredeburg are the architecture and its details.

In the middle of our stroll, we got curious with an alley beside Beringharjo market because there are lots of street vendors that sell secondhand knick-knacks so we decided to explore it. Our favorite vendor is the one who sells a bunch of old cassettes and we found the AC/DC cassette from 1986. (Hell yeah!)

We fall in love with Jogjakarta because of the foods (you should try the Angkringan!), the architectures, the people and how the traditional culture still take part in their everyday life. Jogjakarta is the most humble city we ever traveled, yet!
