Analana Park – Where the Weird Things Are

At Analana Park – it’s where the weird things are. I mean, they look weird to me. And scary, too! Nope, they’re not of small size but of giant size! Goodness, what if they were real or would suddenly move? I would never have the chance to run nor the chance to plead for my life. Those creatures could just spit at me and I’d turn into a rolling ball.

Hostel/Hotel in Yogyakarta

I stayed at One Baek Hostel where it is surrounded by bars, restaurants, and convenience stores. The room was clean, and they will allow you to check-in as long as the beds/rooms are ready. The staff members are nice and they’re willing to help out on where to go and what to do in the city. They also offer tours to Borobudur and Prambanan. Ask for their tour list and decide which tour you’d take. You can book this hostel through TripAdvisorExpedia, and HostelWorld.
