Dior Men new creative director Kim Jones recently shared his summer travel diary in Jogjakarta—remarking the beauty of the monarchy.


When everyone is considering Ibiza, Cancun, or Bora Bora for their summer travel wish-list, the Brit picked Jogjakarta as his summer anchorage. He’s been sharing his travel photos to his half a million followers on Instagram since two days ago (25/07).

Jones is known to be staying at Amanjiwo, a luxury resort in Jogjakarta that overlooks Borobudur temple. His current cultural trip proved that summer does not always require beach—and it needs not to be too far away. What can we know about his itinerary there? You may find an inspiration while staying in Jogjakarta.
