For centuries, Jogyakarta was an independent Sultanate and a very important trading center, but today, Jogyakarta is the city of tradition, religion and pure art forms for most Indonesians. The Sultan of Yogya still has a great, positive influence in modern Indonesia and you can feel that in the city. The city still radiates pride and power, but is also known as the cultural hub of Java. In its narrow side streets you’ll find the craftsmen who make incredible silverware and batik here. The Kraton (the Old Royal Palace) is surrounded by three meter thick walls and forms a city in itself. At least twice a week you can find traditional Gamelan concerts here. Also the nearby Hindu Javanese temple complex Prambanan, and of course the Borobodur is worth paying a visit
Lombok is an island to the east of Bali. It is comparable in size, but not as touristy as Bali. Ideal for anyone who’s looking to relax. Also on Lombok you will find beautiful untouched nature, a large volcano and bright white beaches. Tourism has not yet really been developed in Lombok. Most hotels and resorts are in Senggigi in the north west.
Gili Air is a small island located off the coast of Lombok and easily accessible from Bali and Lombok. There is no motorized traffic on Gili Air, so you can relax and enjoy the beautiful island. There are excellent diving and snorkeling opportunities.
