Our office is centrally located is Solo (also known on some maps as Surakarta) in Central Java. This beautiful old city is the birthplace of Javanese culture, as well as being an important manufacturing center for furniture and textiles. It is readily accessible from Jakarta, Bali or Singapore. We have two Kraton (Royal Palaces), a wonderful antiques market (Pasar Triwindu), the best batik market in Indonesia (Pasar Klewer), nearby mountain resorts and waterfalls, and a close proximity to ancient temples of Prambanan (Hindu) and Borobudur (Buddhist). Contrary to the scare-mongering and sensationalizing press reports, most of Indonesia is very safe, very beautiful and the biggest bargain for your dollar at the moment. 4 or 5 star hotels start at about US$45-$50 per night in Solo. Want luxury 3 room suite in a 5 star hotel? Maybe as high as US$70 per night, and one of the best swimming pools in the world!
