How it works:
- Situation: there are two entrances – the one by the clock is legitimate and costs IDR 12,500 to enter. The other is a shabby section of the palace which costs IDR 5,000.
- Set-up: should you enter the shabby area, the guide there will force you to go to the Sultan’s batik workshop – batik scam.
Places to beware:
- Yogyakarta: Kraton Palace
What to do:
- Head to the correct entrance and avoid touts.
