    Marlioborough Mall: Shopping in Yogya

    by bpacker Written Feb 5, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Contrary to belief, Yogya isn't that backward. It's more urban compared to Hanoi, and there is a sprawling mall in marlioborough that has hair salons, branded goods (with the likes of nike and reebok), chic coffee shops and fast food restaurants (KFC). Oh yes, there are a couple of HongKong (Giodarno) and Singapore ( Osim ) brand names here too.

    What to buy: The sports goods here are a steal at USD6/7 for T shirts, the expressos served here are at USD1-2 and hair treatments ( eg. l'oreal hair spa ) cost about USD5-6.

    Mirota Batik, Pusat Batik and Kerajinan: Jogja department store

    by trisanna Written May 30, 2005

    This is sort of a department store. It's two stories that sells various Yogya goods. I feel it's mostly designed for Indonesian tourists, but other foriegners would equally find interesting goods for sale. The first floor mostly sells clothes and batik. The second sell household goods and they have a small antique section.

  • Indonesian Prawn Crackers

    by xuessium Written May 13, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most of the shops selling food items/candies along Jalan Malioboro will sell packs of ready-to-fry prawn crackers. As it is, each cracker is grey in colour. Once you get home, dry it in the sun first to get rid of moisture (or the cracker will not fry evenly), then thrown them into a deep-fryer and watch them balloon up into those wonderful pinkish pieces of crunchy prawn crackers! Great as a snack.

    What to buy: There are several brands - very competitive.

    What to pay: A box should cost you between 15000-30000 Rupiahs.

  • Jalan Malioboro and Malioboro Centre

    by xuessium Written Apr 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All the shopping you need to do can be settled along Jalan Malioboro, the main artery of Yogyakarta. Here, strewn along the road sides are street stalls and flea markets selling a labyrinth of items, from arts and crafts, food items, souvenirs, T-shirts etc etc, that Yogya thinks that you will need to carry out of Yogya. In the middle is the Malioboro Centre, a modern shopping mall with a Departmental store offering the same type of shopping experience as you get back home. There is no need to stray far from Jalan Malioboro to get your shopping done.

    Batik Stichting: Batik, what else ?

    by chrisvandenbroucke Written May 17, 2004

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Batik Stichting got it's name from the Dutch and previously was a non-commercial organisation.

    You get a good introduction to what batik is and how they make is. Also interesting: how can you see whether it's real or fake?

    Their pieces of art have letters on them and each letter stands for a different price category.

    Jalan Malioboro

    by rite_of_spring Written Feb 11, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main street of Yogya. There are plenty of shops and departmental stores selling a great variety of goods: clothes, electronics, antiques, local craft, stationery, gifts, food & drink, snacks etc.

    The traffic is heavy and chaotic, and crossing is a combination of luck, timing and courage.

    Watch your belongings if you want to explore this area as pickpocket is not uncommon.

    Toms Silver: Silverware

    by catkin Updated Jan 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Toms Silver is probably the best known and biggest silver factory in the Yogyakarta area. You get the factory tour which shows you how they shape and polish the silver then of course there is the inevitable shop at the end to make your purchases.

    What to buy: In the shop there is no end of silver jewellery, table ware etc. We bought a little silver model of a becak as a reminder of Yogyakarta.

    Around Malioboro street: Wayang kulit

    by ukirsari Updated Feb 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Along Malioboro street (otherwise Jalan Pangeran Mangkubumi), we can buy many kind of art tuffs made-in Jogjakarta. First is batik and second is wayang kulit (puppet made from buffalo skin). You can put this wayang as wallpaper decoration as my family did :)

    What to buy: Wayang kulit with great characters. Like Dewarutji (presenting as the illustration), he's god of sea (can be compared like Neptunus in Greek myth) or Bima, Arjuna, Nakula - Sadewa (from the legend Mahabrata or Bharata Yudha/ War of Bharata family).

    What to pay: About USD10 - USD50 in good quality (depends on the material).

    Once in Yogya, loads of people will offer you to visit ther Batic industry, the best place to buy Batic and many other local crafts is sure the Mirota Batik shop.
    They also accept credit card and do not ask for commissions.

    What to pay: Cannot bargain there, it's full of locals, watch what they do and imitate:))
