Jalan Malioboro (Malioboro Street) is a major shopping street in Yogyakarta, the name is also used more generally for the neighborhood around the street. It runs north from the Yogyakarta kraton (palace) towards the roads that lead to either Surakarta to the east, or Magelang to the north, as well as Mount Merapi. This is in itself is significant to many of the local population, the north south orientation between the palace and the volcano being of importance.

The street is the centre of Yogyakarta's largest tourist district; many hotels and restaurants are located nearby. Sidewalks on both sides of Malioboro are crowded with small stalls selling a variety of goods. Everything from t-shirts to bamboo bird whistles can be found in roadside stalls and permanent shops. There are even gold, batik and snack shops. In the evening, several open-air street-side restaurants, called lesehan, operate along the street. Traditional or contemporary music performance can be enjoyed while eating the famous Nasi Gudeg of Yogyakarta. your visit to Yogyakarta is considered incomplete when you miss the Malioboro
