Yogyakarta is one of the most popular tourist destination in Indonesia for many reason. One of them is the prominent cultural traces from its earlier days. Various traditional ceremonies are still held until now. The Special Region of Yogyakarta is the only province that has a nationally recognised monarch to this day, and have its king as governor for crying out loud! Of course there's also the palace, two public yard (the "alun-alun") museums, malls, and so on. Travel books explains more of those place, but always open yourself for a more obscure tourism spot. Compared to other big cities like Jakarta and Bandung, Yogyakarta has a relatively low living cost to the pleasure of the students coming from other parts of Indonesia to study there. It's called the City of Education with reason other than the amount of prestigious university founded there.

Though in recent years, Yogyakarta's getting busier. Higher traffic jam, not supported well by adequate public transportation would surely hinder your movement. Renting vehicles is more suggested if you're travelling in group, so you don't have to split up at the buses. As for living, guesthouses and hotels are sprouting everywhere nowadays, it's not hard to find one especially if you have connection inside. Though land prices are climbing up due to the city's growth, so if you're looking for a cheap permanent residence you can try looking for an area outside bussiness area, or even outside the city (at the regencies), where the land are cheaper. Don't forget to do enough research and survey, so you can bargain a nice price (and avoid getting scammed).
