Full description
Be collected at your accommodation in Yogyakarta then travel for three hours to Cetho and Sukuh Temples. Pass by the slope of Mount Lawu, the surrounding area provides an impressive view of the expansive tea plantations and rice fields against the backdrop of hills and towering mountains. 

From these neighboring temples, head to Mangkunegaran Palace. After an hour and a half, arrive in the heart of Solo City, which is well-known as the sister city of Yogyakarta. Explore this Javanese legacy at your own pace or hire a local guide to learn about the history of this city. Enjoy lunch in a typical restaurant in Solo. 

Last but not least, explore the ancient Batik Museum in Solo City. Find collections of artefacts from times before the colonization and about five years after the Indonesian independence in 1950. Sit back and relax as your driver escorts you back to you accommodation for 6:00 PM.
