Where do Yogyakarta students usually go for healing? Let’s find out popular tourist spots for Yogyakarta students

Yogyakarta, as one of the popular tourist destinations and also a student city, offers a variety of choices for tourist attractions. The presence of tourist attractions in Yogyakarta caters to the needs and goals of tourists for recreation, work, or sports.

You must be familiar with this tourist spot. Parangtritis Beach was chosen by 184,224 visitors at the beginning of 2023 (solopos.com, 2023). As a favorite destination, Parangtritis Beach is a must-visit because, besides enjoying the sea view, tourists can also ride horses and play ATV.

The location of Parangtritis Beach is also close to other beaches in the Bantul area, such as Parangkusumo Beach, Cemara Sewu Beach, Pelangi Beach, and others. When visiting Parangtritis Beach, the best healing spot is Watugupit.

From the top of Watugupit, tourists can clearly see the sunset. Additionally, the beautiful sea view adds to the attraction of Parangtritis Beach from the top of Watu Gupit hill.

Bantul Regency also has a stunning hill called Bukit Bintang. Compared to Parangtritis Beach, Bukit Bintang is 11 km closer to Yogyakarta City. Due to its strategic location and proximity to the center of Yogyakarta, Bukit Bintang is a sought-after spot for students at night to enjoy the city lights from an elevation of 150 meters above sea level.

Named Bukit Bintang for a reason, from this hill with an elevation of 150 meters above sea level, the glittering lights of Yogyakarta City will appear like numerous stars in the night sky. Tourists can enjoy a cup of warm beverages such as milk, coffee, or ginger tea. There are also snacks like grilled corn, fried bananas, and instant noodles to accompany your healing activities.
