Learning history and culture in a new city is something that every traveler would love to do.

Solo has been known as the city that will give you a better understanding of the local’s life, culture, and history. As soon as you join in the tour, you will have a chance to explore the royal palaces and sacred temples in Solo. Start from Mangkunegaran, Kasunanan, Ceto Temple, and Sukuh Temple, your adventure to reveal the untold history begins.


Firstly picked up from your hotel in Yogyakarta, you will head to the Mangkunegaran Palace directly. The trip time takes around 2 hours. The second you get into Mangkunegaran Palace, set yourself ready to be wowed! Although the palace is not really that big, the place is really hypnotizing to be discovered. FYI, you are not allowed to taking pictures at the royal room. Make sure to admire it with your own eyes.

After that, you will go to Kasunanan Palace, the main palace in Solo. The palace is bigger than Mangkunegaran. A lot of cultural heritages are easily found here.
