Let's Visit Kasongan











Kasongan is one of Desnitation Tourism Areas in Bantul Yogyakarta.
In Kasongan we can buy Gerabah (pot ceramics, statue & many unique handycrafts).
We also can see the process of making those Lovely Handycrafts. If we buy direct to the creator we can get cheap price, but we have to go to the house which far from the main road. The price of 5o cm height pot is about Rp 5000,- .
