Why people love Yogyakarta

Pick up was prompt and efficient. Recommend to bring along some snacks or light bites as the lunch provided after Jomblang cave may not be to your liking. Option to bring along a shower cap and some wet wipes as well as the safety helmets and harnesses are not really washed before next use. Also, would recommend to wear tops with sleeves and bottoms with knee length minimum. Life jacket provided for river tubing wasn’t really clean and developed rashes from it. Overall, an experience for city dwellers :)
