Yogyakarta was the 3rd stop on our Indonesia #TripofWonders tour, the first leg of my 1-month Indonesia adventure. It was my second time to visit this beautiful city after a 4-day Yogyakarta adventure in 2012.

I instantly got excited when I saw our itinerary because it included activities that I didn’t get to experience the first-time. Because we arrived in the late afternoon on Day 1 and left early morning on Day 3, we only really had one full day to enjoy Yogyakarta. It was a day well spent as we got to enjoy a jam-packed itinerary from sunrise to sundown.
