On our third day (25 March 2017), we drove to Kalibiru (map), another trending place in Yogyakarta where you can snap a picture on a tree with beautiful scenery of lake as the background. Before we arrived, we dreamt of taking those pictures and posted them on our social media. However, after 2-hours journey from city center (we stayed at Malioboro area), we found that the place was very crowded. We had to queue for 3-5 hours if we insisted to take those pictures. So, we just gave up and hang around for around 1 hour and then moved to Mangunan Pine Tree Forest (map). Ahead to the forest, we stopped to Sate Klathak Pak Pong (map) for lunch.
Following going back to Yogyakarta, we stopped at Tempo Gelato in Prawirotaman street (map), another heavenly street for backpackers in this city, other than Malioboro.We spent the night at Malioboro, close to our homestay, the packer lodge. Check rate and availability, make your booking via Agoda.
