Different from tourists. If you plan to travel to Yogyakarta, especially the Mount Merapi area, it's a good idea to check the security status of the official government agency, and look for information on whether the tourist location is still serving tourists, or temporarily closed. Too bad, right, if you've traveled far to the top, it turns out you can't enjoy anything because it's closed.
