Yogyakarta have a palace where the Sultan and his family lives over there. Before we going in to the next story, I will tell you that Sultan is call for The King in kingdom of some region in Indonesia. Sultan is hereditary crowned, and now Kraton Yogyakarta or usually called Kraton Ngayogyakarto was led by Sultan Hamengku Buwono X. Kraton Yogyakarta is one of the most popular in Yogyakarta, because we can see everything related with kingdom life. We can also see traditional vehicle, like Andong, andong is cart which attrack by horse. You can try go round the city with andong that rented in Jalan Malioboro, certainly with the coachman.
Next destination in Yogyakarta you can go to Alun-alun, the yard of Kraton Yogyakarta. You will find two trees which located in the south of Kraton, and maybe you ever heard myth of it. They say if you can pass through these trees with closing your eyes, your dream will come true. Please try it, I think its not so hard but not also easy to pass through it. Not only trying this game, in every night you can enjoy a fair that present to you many of stand which selling clothes, accesories, foods and beverages. You can sit there for few time and enjoying the others visitor who playing the game like closing your eyes, propeller, and maybe just chatting with their friends.
After spending your night at Kraton, you can take a rest in hotels where spread around Jalan Malioboro and near of Kraton at Jalan Prawirotaman.
