Yogyakarta

Roll out the yoga mat and prepare to align those chakras, Yogyakarta is about as close as you can get to Rishikesh on the Banana Pancake Trail of Southeast Asia. A magnet for New Agers and hippies, it’s a whole city of temples and gamelan music, of batik workshops and yogi schools. Its spirit resides in the complex of the Sultan’s Palace (also called the Kraton): an ancient walled town filled with bazaars and mosque minarets. A short trip into the volcanos nearby can bring you to the eye-watering complex of Borobudur, too. That’s a jaw dropper, rising with countless stupas to claim the title of the world’s largest Buddhist temple.

  • Places I wanna go in Indonesia (outside of Bali) I live in Bali, and honestly, it's pretty hard to leave the island when things are as good as they are here. There's a ton to see around Indonesia though and I'm eager to plan some more "out there" trips.
