Nightlife in Yogyakarta is quite different from Western Disco & Pub-visits. Spending a nightlife party rather will transmit you to entertainment of traditional Javanese performing arts. Especially the Wayang Kulit (leather puppet performances) can be seen in the marathon all-night perfrmance till 5am, at Saturday in the alun-alun (South main square) of the Kraton!
I do prefer the Wayang Golek, the 3-dimensional wooden puppets with movable heads and arms … with that mysterious sound of the gamelan.
Dress Code All night long? Better bring a pillow and do not worry about your dress …
Directions Walk over the Jl. Malioboro right to the main outer Kraton entrance
