Malioboro is packed with shops and street vendors offering souvenirs, batiks at affordable prices. Across the road is the Vredenburg fort and Beringharjo market.
At night, the street comes alive with merchants opening up tents serving traditional food Gudeg. You need to sit down cross-legged in the tents, which the locals refer to as "lesehan". Enjoy your meal while taking in Malioboro's vibrant nightlife.
