Last December I joined my school tour to Surakarta. I was amazed by the tour guide. He is so friendly and fun. We learn how the palace was made and some fun facts from the history of palace. I enjoyed my school visit.

We can reach this palace with private vehicle or public transportation. They provide guide to give information related the place, the tradition or the items, but i do not know how much cost for the guide. We can learn history by visiting this place. By the way, it is better to wear shoes than sandals, because to enter the yard we should wear shoes or take off our sandals and go barefoot to the yard.

Quite place to explore (weekdays always the best!). I think it would be better experience if I asked for palace's guide. You could take a picture together with the guard in front of palace.

Be aware of the opening hours as they can close early afternoon.
We were told we needed a tour guide to view the palace so the cost was 90,000IDR. This was excellent, the guide (Dodi) spoke very good English and knew a lot about the palace and the king. Would definitely recommend. We found this better than visiting the Kraton.

Worth to visit as one of Indonesia heritage places in Solo. It is a palace and residential of King of Hamengku Buwono and well connected to a palaxe in Yogyakarta.
