About the tour

To support the newly independent country of Indonesia, in 1945, the Sultan of Yogyakarta kingdom decided to join Indonesia as one of the states (provinces). Because of this, the government granted a special status of this province where the reigning Sultan will become the Governor of the province. Come and join me in this tour, where you will see the palace, learn about batik and its phylosphy, as well as rich cultures and ceremonies of Javanese society.
