I had so much fun during my stay here. Hiked up mount merbabu and mount sumbing over the weekend. Java heritage tour offered excellent service! They welcomed me and treated me like I’m one of their brothers. My driver Budi was very friendly and polite. He’s always punctual and takes good care of me whenever I go.

Silver handicraft is a culture descended by the ancestor to the next generations. Initially, handicrafts in Kotagede were made of gold, silver and copper. By the Coarse of time, however, silver is most preferred. For the reason, craftsmen make more silver handicrafts until today. This handicraft is exported to foreign countries, mainly to Europe. Order is usually increasing by the year end.
