I was surprised to see how empty the streets were. I've seen some people in silver selling shops, I walked into a couple of them, the craftsmanship is indeed outstanding, but I thought most of the things were very pricey. Walking through the little streets...More

We came there after zoo and Kotagede neigborhoods were the right place to visit. We enjoyed the old architecture from the 18th and 19th centuries.

It is about 45mins from Yogyakarta and clearly doesnt warrant the journey there. Apart from few alley ways and a old mosque there is nothing. Even the street dont really present any historical value neither are they maintained very well. Given the historical marvels other...More

I visited this area in 1997 and even in that time it was attractive place to visit. SILVER is one of main reasons. Kota Gede is famous for traditional silver craft work, so one could find almost any kind gift, jewellery and accessories or souvenirs....More
