Yogyakarta: Malioboro Street Free Walking Tour
Hello and Good Day! My name is Gagat, living in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I have been guiding since 2009. Since I was young, I have a great interest in hospitality industry. My experiences in this industry started with a post at a travel agency as their tour planner, then became an instructor at tourism school, guiding and leading a group tour. I also had a blessing when I worked for an international organization, that was an eye-opener for me. From my interactions with colleagues from all over the world, I learned a lot. Not only developed my English, but also gain a better understanding about respect and commitment. I like having ice coffee and chat over various topics. Above all, I love to share the beauty of my people and country with you. Ah ya... I am a train and plane spotter. So, if during our journey, I automatically look up to the sky when I hear the roaring engines, or waiting at the train crossing excitedly, please forgive me for that :) Let's live our dreams... one journey at a time
Learning about the people, their culture and tradition, can be done easily by being amongst them with the right Guru.
In this free tour, I will introduce to you the culture, tradition, heritage of Javanese (Yogyakartans) people by going along the north-south main street of Yogyakarta.
We will pass some heritage buildings with stories of their own.
Some point of interests along our journey:
1. White Pal
2. Tugu Train Station
5. Chinese influence architectures
6. Governor's Office

11. Ground Zero of Yogyakarta City
Beside those, we will also make some stops so you can enjoy local food and drink, among others are: ginger drink with ronde, coffee with burning charcoal, bakpia (sweet pies), lunpia (spring rolls), and jamu (herbal drink). Please come with empty stomach :)
