Umbul Manten, A Place Full of Love and Peace – We hadn’t been to Klaten for months, so it was like we were visiting for the first time and the tropical sun made our visit even more special. If you need somewhere to spend a few hours in the afternoon, we’d recommend the Umbul Manten. We love the word Umbul (springs). We’re not too keen on its literally meaning, we like its symbolic meaning much more. An springs is a calm place, it symbolises life and the happiness that comes when you find something when you least expect it. A place full of love and peace.

Don’t forget that you’re in Umbul Manten, which means that eating keong sawah and noodles at any time of day is totally acceptable. And someone on Instagram recommended that we visit Warung Soto Klaten, and how could be we pass up the opportunity to go somewhere that serves lunch all day? We’ve already talked about how lunch is our favourite meal of the day.
