Malioboro Street is one of the three streets from the city of Yogyakarta which stretches from the Yogyakarta monument to the Yogyakarta post office intersection.
The word Malioboro comes from the name of Malborough, a member of the British colonial who occupied the Yogyakarta area from 1811 to 1816 AD. It is said that if you draw a straight line, Malioboro is an imaginary axis between the south coast, the Yogyakarta palace, and Mount Merapi.
Starting in 2019, a rule is applied that every Tuesday wage in the Malioboro area is free from motorized vehicles except for Trans Jogja public transportation and public service vehicles. With this new rule, many activities are held every Tuesday wage in the Malioboro area.
