Have Your Hair Cut by a Traveling/Traditional Barber
Traveling barbers might have actually existed, before modern salons and barber shops started popping out at every corner of the city like mushrooms in rainy season and eventually replacing them. However, this is not the sort of things occurring in Jogja. In this culture-rich city, we can still easily find such traveling barbers. Should you wish to experience nostalgia or just try the sensation of having your hair cut by traditional barbers, you can find them at either traditional markets or Yogyakarta's northern city square. Equipped with onthel bike (bicycle widely used during the Dutch colonization in Indonesia), a tool box containing several types of scissors, razors, and a mirror, these traditional barbers will travel around offering their service to people, or waiting for customers under a shady tree.
