Omah Pari Boutique Hotel
The charming Omah Pari Boutique Hotel is tucked away in a residential area, making it tough to find, but it's worth the hunt. This small residence retains classic, exterior architecture that spills into the condos and guest rooms, which are very simply designed yet elegant and spacious. There are a couple of dining options within Omah Pari, but the hotel also offers a transportation service for guests who would like to get out and see the bustling city of Yogyakarta. Guests enjoy the friendly, accommodating staff and serviced apartments, but tend to feel cut off from the surrounding area. Omah Pari is a nice, quiet reprieve from city life, but it is perhaps better enjoyed if you have your own vehicle.

We approached the sacred site from the east, passing the small Hindu temple of Mendut to Sambisari temple, a Hindu temple constructed in the 9th century. Undiscovered until ...
Armed with the usual travel stuff (camera, hat, sunblock, sunglasses, umbrella), off to our first destination. Our driver arrived earlier than expected to pick us up at our hotel Lobby. Echo, our driver can speak limited English but its okay we still manage to communicate with actions, some Bahasa and English.
First stop: Borobudur Temple
We decided to engage a local English speaking guide to show us this lovely place and explaining the history to us. As shared ...
... its a shame that we didn't get to hang out for more than one evening.
The lads led me out to the hawker stalls, just to the left of Vogels hostel, here you can get some amazing food, grilled corn on the cob (have it with spicy sauce, 5000), There is also a blue shelter right at the end of the hawker stalls that does fantastic tea (spiced with ginger, cinnamon, fruit peel and bay) and also does great Mue Goreny (20,000 for the lot) The hostel does ...
An early start in order to get to the station to catch the train to Yogjakarta.
Our first experience of Kereta Api, Indonesian Railways, and the Argo Wilis Bandung to Surubaya express.
Entry to the platforms necessitated passing through fairly strict security, which was reassuring given recent bombings, and helpful railway employees directed us to our carriage and seats.
Clean, comfortable and air-conditioned, ...
