    Yogyakarta is a kingdom although it is involved in Republic of Indonesia as one of the provinces, it is considered as special district because of the history between Yogyakarta and Republic of Indonesia. Yogyakarta comes from the real name Ngayogjokarto Hadiningrat, it is led by the king entitled Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono 1 (I) until 10 (X) now. Different from other province, Yogyakarta never organizes general election to choose a governor. Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono automatically becomes the king and also the governor without election. Yogyakarta joined into Republic of Indonesia in September 1945 after Indonesia Proclaimed its independence in August 1945, with some terms and conditions as special district. Yogyakarta has many tourism destination, mountain, mount, beach, Sultan palace, art galleries, etc. It is also considered as city of students because many people from ather provinces and cities, even countries come to Yogyakarta to study. The oldest university in Indonesia is also located in Yogyakarta, it is Gadjah Mada University.

    Thanks for making video about Indonesia again. I really appreciate it. This is city is underrated actually. Very awesome but not as famous as Bali or Lombok yet. Anyway, Borobudur temple 00:22 is actually located in Magelang, but still quiet close as Yogyakarta

    Been there in 2007 with my indonesian girlfriend by the time, who became my wife shortly after. Landing in Jogja is an experience.
    Before landing in a short runway the plane is making a lot of turns in pretty low altitude over the city, as it is sourrounded by many mountains and volcanos. Jogja is very beautiful. Visiting the city and the neighbours area is really worth it. There are a lot of nice landscape and interesting handycraft, bart, and painting to watch and buy.
    My only deception was Borobudur. The temple is indeed very nice but it's a foreigner trap. The fee to get in is something like 10 or 20 times more expensive for foreigner tourists than for locals. It's really a shame.
    Local people as for the majority of indonesians are very kind and helpfull.

    The best thing when I visit and stay couple days in Jogja or Jogjakarta is the culture and the people. I am Javanese too, but the value of Java culture is more vibrant when visiting this calming city. The smile and joke every time meet the stranger and residents, very calm. Oh that I miss so much the city, there is lot of songs with Bahasa talking about Jogja, where is love, friendship, and live value told me that the Jogja is the true inspiration for all.

    5:56 "Yogyakarta is more than just a city, its a kingdom" this statement is not only describing that yogyakarta was an old kingdom back then with many temples, but also describing current Yogyakarta government system. Fyi, Yogyakarta is the only district in Indonesia which lead by a King not Governor.

    This video reminds of that time when I was hardly breathing- in restlessness, was in kind of depression at that time , this made me to sail my boat in some different directions, thank god for those shattering days – they made me who I m now.

    Not only temple. Yogyakarta also has so many beautiful places and hidden paradise to explore. The beaches like Indrayanti beach, kesirat beach, timang beach, and so on; waterfalls like kedung pedut waterfall, kedung kayang waterfall, and so on; forests like kebun buah mangunan, pinus Pengger, puncak becici, and so on; and also mountains like merapi
