Malioboro street is a major shopping street in Yogyakarta – Jalan Malioboro (English: Malioboro Street) is a major shopping street in Yogyakarta, Indonesia; the name is also used more generally for the neighborhood around the street. It lies north-south axis in the line between Yogyakarta Kraton and Mount Merapi. This is in itself is significant to many of the local population, the north south orientation between the palace and the volcano being of importance.

The street is the center of Yogyakarta’s largest tourist district surrounded with many hotels and restaurants nearby. Sidewalks on both sides of the street are crowded with small stalls selling a variety of goods. In the evening several open-air streetside restaurants, called lesehan, operate along the street. Less obvious to the tourist, but more for the local population, side streets, lanes and structures that lead on to Malioboro are as important as the street itself.

      My wife and I had an amazing 5 days trip in Jogja thanks to Mas Adi. Honestly speaking, I liked travelling independently and figuring things out for myself and never considered hiring a private tour guide. But for this trip, it is much different as this is my first time travel with my wife. Hence, I have decided to hire a private tour guide and it was the best decision that I've made. Why? 1. Cheaper travelling cost - if you plan only to travel from point A to point B, it is much cheaper to use Grab / Uber / etc..but if you have a long list of places to visit, it is cheaper to hire private tour guide. 2. Hassle free - in Jogja, you need to drive for long hours from one destination to next. Not only that, Mas Adi will pick us up at the hotel as early as 330 a.m. for sunrise viewing. He will also send and wait for us patiently to places that we wish to go. 3. Knowledge sharing - Having someone who is well conversant with the area, Mas Adi briefed us the background stories and shared unique information concerning the sites visited. 4. Local cuisine - No trip is complete without exploring the local delicacies. For us, Mas Adi will give suggestions on what and where to try them. Not only he cares about the taste, he will make sure... My wife and I had an amazing 5 days trip in Jogja thanks to Mas Adi.

History of Malioboro

Malioboro street food

The street was for many years two-way, but by the 1980s had become one way only, from the railway line (where it starts) to the south – to Beringharjo markets, where it ends. The largest, oldest Dutch era hotel, Hotel Garuda, is located on the street’s northern end, on the eastern side adjacent to the railway line. It has the former Dutch era Prime Minister’s complex, the kepatihan, on the eastern side.

For many years in the 1980s and later, a cigarette advertisement was placed on the first building south of the railway line – or effectively the last building on Malioboro, which advertised Marlboro cigarettes, no doubt appealing to locals and foreigners who would see a pun with name of the street with a foreign product being advertised.

It does not reach the walls or grounds of the Yogyakarta palace, as Malioboro ceases in name adjacent to the very large market Beringharjo (on the eastern side as well). From this point the street changes name to Jalan Ahmad Yani (Ahmad Yani Street) and has the former Governors residence on the western side, and the old Dutch Fort Vredeburg on the eastern side.
