So, i called this little town, part of Java Island, The Goddess of Artistic Land. Sound extravagant, isn't it? Well i don't have any more bad phrase to describe this place. Actually many people around the globe always noticing Bali as Heaven of Indonesia and Jogjakarta is just other tourism destination or else don't know it. First let me tell you where it is. Jogjakarta as i said before is located in Java Island, specifically Central Java. It have so many hidden treasure. Do you feel curious now? Ok let's starting the journey, goblin and found some treasure!!
Hey-ho, our first destination is Plaosan temple.This temple located 1 km from Prambanan Temple, in Bugisan Village. It have wonderful sunrise view which you can watch from 4.30 am to 6 am. This temple actually build by Queen Sri Kahulunan (Buddhism) supported by her Husband Rakai Pikatan (Hinduism) which make this temple have Buddha and Hindu character along complex of the temple. This temple also called the twin temple and also symbol of love. So, couples are so welcome here to get bless from the queen and king!
Next destination is cave along Kalisuci one of mystical river in Jogjakarta. Trust me, you'll never found it on the map! But no worries you can ask the people along the street Semanu Village. We can cave tubing here and you will see wonderful parget cave, greenish blue clear water, big stalagmite upper of the cave with many bats hanging there. Along the river you will go along two cave one is vertical and one is horizontal. In Gelatik Cave (the vertical cave) you can swimming around enjoy the blue skies, green trees along your eyes can see, fresh-clear water and air. So relaxing!
Have more energy to chase another treasure, Goblin?! Welcome to hidden beaches along the South Beach! It located far from the central of Jogjakarta about two and half hours and well you need to rent the car because no public transportation so, go in a group or else you can found new friend at the place you live in and take them to go with you. Long....long way to reach there but it payback with wonderful treasure of white sands and blue water out there. But well sorry ladies, this place is not the beach that you can wear your bikini and get tan under the sun because of traditional culture here, say no to show your body in public place. Don't be sad the beautiful sunset that made the sky turn orange and yellow and big fire ball drowning in the blue black sea also white sand will cure the sadness away. Stay Goblin!!!
