For culture-enthusiast couples who fancy a laid-back but adventurous honeymoon atmosphere, Yogyakarta has the perfect mixture of beauty, culture, and romanticism to offer. Even a convenient short stroll of the city can be romantic, as it is dense with beautiful ancient palaces and old buildings. Honeymooners can also opt for more natural attractions, such as the fairy-tale-like pine woods at Mangunan or the charming Kalibiru viewing deck.
