lovely city. most of friends are live in this city. so clean, quiet, peace, nice weather, very good foods, easy public transport, so lot of fun and relaxing.
it's one of my memorable place.
Salatiga is a great smaller city in the mountains with cooler weather. It is a great place to relax and sight see the nearby country-side.
Salatiga is a small city, laid on the foot of Mount Merbabu and Telomoyo, and has a relatively cool climate due to its elevated position.
In the city, you can find many local culinary or snacks from other area, such as : Soto Rumput Boyolali, Pecel Keong Desa Banyubiru, Tahu Bakso, Martabak Mesir, Bakso Daging Sapi. Escape for a while from a hustle city, you can find a sanctuary place to stay over, at Kayu Arum Resort and Laras Asri Resort. 20 minutes away from Salatiga, the city of Ambarawa as a market town located between Semarang and Salatiga, share a historical and cultural vacation, as Museum Kereta Api Ambarawa (Ambarawa Railway Museum) to showed you the history of railway at Central Java area.
Stay at Grand Wahid and you can see Mt. Murbabu. Visit the slopes of Mt Mirbabu and enjoy the cool air and the flowers and vegetables.
The scenery is beautiful. It is accessible by bus from Borobudur.
Salatiga is the best city in Central Java that offers quietness, and it is cold at night, very different with Semarang.
The city Salatiga is a student city, therefore it's quite vibrant with cheap food and plenty of entertainment.
It's very close to Kopeng highland, that has waterfall, and some outbound activities. Located between two major city in central java, it's also easy to access by public transport.
