There are so many things to do around the jogja city that it’s easy to get overwhelmed when trying to plan your holiday. Firstly of course people will think to visit Borobudur & Prambanan Temples. They are beautiful, pretty and most importantly, it is rich (cultural value wise).

The rupiah (IDR) is the official currency of Indonesia. There are plenty of exchange facilities all over Yogyakarta main tourist areas, most of them accepting currencies like the US dollar, Euro, Australian dollar, UK pound, Ringgit Malaysia and Singapore Dollar.

– ATM/BANK can be found in all tourist areas and at banks in Jogja. Withdrawing rupiahs from an ATM is an increasingly popular way to take out a daily amount of cash, but be careful the bank doesn’t charge an excessive service charge per transaction. Big names of bank that you can use such as BNI, BCA, Bank Mandiri, CIMB Niaga.

– Credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Eurocard and American Express are widely accepted at most large shops, restaurants and hotels in the city. Lots of ATMs also accept Visa & Mastercard.

7. Unique Shopping Market.

Jogjakarta Travel Guide:

A traditional Indonesian market serves as a multi-purpose space in which one may trade or purchase goods, eat and drink, socialise or just pass time. Jalan Malioboro, perhaps the most electric thoroughfare in all of Yogyakarta, is home to the city’s most vibrant markets. Covered pavements are hives of activity; stores offering clothes, fabric, home wears and ornaments battle for custom with street and market vendors selling cheap trinkets and batik.

Visit for instance Mirota Batik, and find yourself one of these traditional Indonesian cloths. The prices are a bit higher than those on Malioboro streets, but the cloths they are selling are more special.

Jogja also has its share of beautiful handmade jewelry and decorative ornaments. Have your pick and visit Kotagede, where lots of jewelry shops can be found.

If you are a Chocolate lovers! Visit Chocolate Monggo Factory, the location is at Kotagede as well- a wide variety of chocolate bars, tablets and seasonal products are waiting for you.
