There is no doubt that Yogyakarta holds many beautiful and picture-worthy places in its arms. For those of you who have grown tired of the popular tourist destinations, you are in luck! Below, we have listed down some underrated photo spots at Yogyakarta that you should totally add to your must-visit list.
Yats Colony is an Instagrammable, stylish and environmentally-responsible hotel located at the heart of Yogyakarta. With just a 10 minutes ride from Jalan Malioboro, the hotel reflects Yogyakarta’s rich cultural heritage with mural arts displayed all over the place. Get ready to have your photo gallery full with Insta-worthy pics that would surely give you a hard time to pick the best one. Cozy room photoshoot? Outdoor photoshoot with natural sunlight that shines through the trees? Candid photoshoot in front of your cottage? You can do all this (and more!) in just one place. We highly recommend Yats Colony Hotel to be your next #staycation destination or for your Pre-Wedding photo session with SweetEscape.
Watu Lumbung is an exotic secret beach surrounded by small green hills, interesting rock and coral formations. There is also a huge stone with a hole in the middle creating an arch, which makes this place a real treat for photography lovers. Access is quite challenging because in order to get here, you’ll have to take a 20 minutes walk through steep roads. Therefore if you have an adventurous spirit, a visit here is not to be missed. Another picturesque spot that you can visit is the hills nearby where you can watch a wonderful scenery with ocean view and majestic hills surrounding Mount Kidul.
