My name is Ananda Utama. Originally I am a geologist, and I live in Yogyakarta for ten years now. Since four years, I worked as a tour guide. I found out that I love meeting new people and explain about my country. I know lots of places in Yogyakarta that I can show and explain to the traveler about the history of the place. New information I make my own really quick. So after that, I started my tour agency called discover-java. I want tourists to have a great experience in Indonesia. And that they learn about the Indonesian live. I like to explore the world and meet new people, along with sharing knowledge about historical information related to Yogyakarta. I find good communication necessary. For me, Yogyakarta is more than a geographical situation. Far beyond that, Yogyakarta involves feelings.
