by adrian 17. October 2014 09:04

The following is a brief outline of a location that I could produce as a feature travel destination.

'Jogja - Not Yoga' 

 

 Yogyakarta - or as it is often referred to 'Jogja' - is located on the Indonesian island of Java

  This feature would cover what 'Jogja' and the surrounding area has to offer as a travel destination.

 

From beaches to mountains to aw inspiring UNESCO world heritage listed monuments.

It will also reveal what Yogyakarta has to offer within the confines of this friendly city.

From temples, historical heritage buildings, and monuments to bustling local markets and high class plazas.

Even if local crafts are not high on ones list this location cannot help, but impress.

Yogyakarta has craft work of the highest calibre such as batik, and silver and gold ware much of which is still being produced as it was in years gone by.

This feature could cover in depth some of the craft aspects of Yogyakarta. 

Such as silver and goldsmiths who are still producing their work in a similar fashion just as their forefathers did.

Good connecting flights to Singapore make Yogyakarta an interesting international destination whether for a vacation or a stopover for travellers on route to places further a field.

Focal points could include -

* Background to Yogyakarta and the region

* Geographical locations 

* Local and regional sites 

* Yogyakarta - accommodation, transport getting around - including on foot,

   what to see - including off the beaten track.

 

 

                                                                                                               

 Craftsmanship of the Highest Quality

Adding a different dimension to the tourism, travel feature could be an in-depth account of the craft industry such as that associated with silver and gold craftwork being produced of the highest quality. Craftsmen still using many of the technics they learnt from their forefathers and are only too willing to demonstrate their skills to any interested party.
