Adhisthana Hotel: I always love it when you discover a really cool design hotel in a city that’s also very affordable. You immediately feel at home at the Adhisthana Hotel. On the courtyard near the lobby you can relax for a bit, but it’s even better to go and relax by the pool. The whole hotel is interiored with locally made things. The next time I’m in Yogyakarta I’ll definitely stay here for a couple of nights!

This is one of the most popular restaurants in Yogyakarta and definitely loved among the expats that live in the city. The interior has a little bit of an Italian and Greek vibe.

This is how you get there: There are several airlines that fly to Java daily. Of course you can fly directly to Yakarta and then on to Yogyakarta, but it’s also fun to do a stop-over in another cool city like Singapore or Hong Kong. In that case, fly with Singapore Airlines or with Cathay Pacific. They even often have a direct flight to Yogyakarta!
