Hi I'm Josh, and together with my wife Dewi, I run a eco-bamboo homestay in Bantul. in Bantul. While not manning our guests, I work as a local guide by the motto "travel to connect with the locals.
Yogyakarta is full of surprises when you choose not to go to the touristy places. If you're planning to visit Yogyakarta, I'd be happy to show you around and visit some places that aren't included in your guidebook. I'll bring you to some amazing artisans at work; from Yogyakarta's very own handwoven textile (Lurik) artists, shadow puppet artists, to Batik and a silver smithing workshop.
In between the trip, I'll take you to a traditional market near the royal palace where I'll you try some local snacks. Then we'll be off to get lunch at my favorite Soto stall, and having a coconut break to refresh our mind!
Important note: This itinerary is flexible, so if you have any request during the trip we can chat and I'll try my best to suggest a place that suits your interest.
