We are de­lighted that the num­ber of tourists to Yo­gya con­tin­ues to rise ev­ery year, and they come not only from within In­done­sia, but also from many over­seas na­tions. In 2012, we wel­comed 2 mil­lion visi­tors, and in 2013 we ex­pect to far ex­ceed that num­ber. In the fol­low­ing pages, you will see the many places to visit and mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ences to en­joy dur­ing a visit to the area. Most visi­tors will find there is al­ways some­thing to keep them oc­cu­pied dur­ing their stays; in fact, it is of­ten the case that they en­counter dif­fi­cul­ties fit­ting in ev­ery­thing they want to do. Of course, the best so­lu­tion is to re­turn for another trip in the fu­ture.

We con­tinue to im­prove in­fra­struc­ture in Yo­gya, in­clud­ing tourism fa­cil­i­ties. Yo­gya is to­day one of In­done­sia’s most dy­namic cities for de­vel­op­ment, with easy telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions and state- of- the- art ser­vices.

I also wish to use this op­por­tu­nity to de­liver grate­ful ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the many peo­ple who work in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try in Yo­gya. They are on the front- line in serv­ing visi­tors to our re­gion, and do an ex­cel­lent job in leav­ing a last­ing fa­vor­able im­pres­sion.

Not to be for­got­ten are the charm­ing and friendly peo­ple of Yo­gyakarta. They are renowned through­out In­done­sia for their gen­tle and hos­pitable na­ture, and as such are nat­u­rally gra­cious hosts for all our visi­tors.

In clos­ing, I trust you will en­joy your visit to Yo­gya – hope­fully, it will be the first of many.

May God bring peace, guid­ance and pro­tec­tion to us all.
