Visit to the Pasar Pakem

Would you like to go with our staff and see where they do their shopping? You can go to the Pasar Pakem on the hillside of the Merapi mountain. Pasar means market. This market has existed since 1993 and is mainly aimed to the local population. The market has been quite clean and not too busy for a number of years. Besides vegetables, fruit and fish, there are also household items, clothing and souvenirs for sale. On some days, students sell second-hand clothes. You can enjoy the different snacks that are typical for the Merapi region. You can also visit the market yourself by bus or taxi.
