Welcome to Solo
Few visitors stay more than one night, which is a pity as there is much to explore. With backstreet kampung (neighbourhoods) and an elegant kraton (walled city palace), traditional markets and gleaming malls, Solo has plenty of attractions. It's also an excellent place to experience traditional performing arts, as it attracts students and scholars to its renowned music and dance academies.
With a magnificent batik museum, Solo is arguably the best place to buy batik clothing. Batik cloth here is elevated to an art form.
