Excited Shopping at Beringharjo Traditional Market

Yogyakarta, the wonderful city to spend holiday in this city. Full of culture and also wonderful place to get hunting stuff to shopping time at Traditional Market in Zero street Malioboro. 
Yogya’s main market, 800m north of the kraton , is a lively and fascinating place. The front section has a wide range of batik – mostly inexpensive batik cap (stamped batik) – while the 2nd floor is dedicated to cheap clothes and shoes. Most interesting of all, though, is the old section towards the back. Crammed with warungs and stalls selling a huge variety of fruit and vegetables, this is still very much a traditional market. The range of rempah rempah (spices) on the 1st floor is quite something.
