What is a must-do when in Yogyakarta?
The city is known as Indonesia’s art capital, and for good reason – it’s dotted with iconic museums and galleries. Visit the Affandi Museum, the former home and resting place of famous Indonesian painter Affandi.
What are some of the city’s best eats?
Bakso (beef meatballs and noodles in soup) is a must-try dish. You can sample it at many street stalls around the city.
Where do you usually go to unwind?
The city comes alive at night, with multiple traditional performances on show. I like to relax after a long day by watching a Ramayana Ballet performance under the stars at Borobudur Park.
