Pasar Burung (Bird Market)

An interesting spot for photographers

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

The historic bird market might be a bit of a shock for those who have never set foot in a crowded and dirty Indonesian traditional market, but the rows and rows of wooden traditional bird cages make it a great haunt for photographers. It's also much cleaner than some of the other traditional markets around town.

Located close to the Kraton and Taman Sari, it's worth a visit. But it has to be mentioned that the sale of endangered wildlife is a big problem in Indonesia and it may not be legal for some of the birds and animals that you will see to be on sale. Also, some of the animals are kept in very poor conditions so arrive prepared.

    I heard much good about the famous bird market in Yogi. But when my friend and I visited it, we were disappointed. But probably due to the new location the market has now , further outside the centre. We were told it just moved in August 2010. The location is rather sterile now and is missing the flair. Unluckily we did not see the old one, but the bird market in Malang seems to be like the old one in Yogi :) Much better than Yogi's new one.
