I would like to share you what should you do and where should you go while traveling in Jogja! Jogja is a culture city, you would miss to came by this city again. All the food, the people, its heritage...and so on. I figured it out that 4-day of short getaway is not enough to explore this city, but more than enough to release your pressure.
As I list the listed below, I also calculate the route. So, I just wrote down based on the best route that I would thought of.
(If you're happen to be in Jogja via Tugu Yogyakarta Railway Station)
08.00 AM - Departure by train (Ticket price: 700,000 IDR (return))
It's nice to visit Yogyakarta by train. If you're budget traveller, you'd prefer this kind of transportation as well. You know, the train station located in the heart of Yogyakarta. Just few meters from Malioboro Street. Different from Adisucipto International Airport, which is located near Prambanan temple and kind of far away from downtown. For seat reservation, I would like to book via their mobile application named KAI Access. KAI Access allows you to check their schedule and seats availability. You could also choose your carriage, seat position, and your payment whether it's KlikPay BCA, VISA/MASTER/JCB, or ATM/Payment Point. Isn't that cool? You do not need to wait in-line to buy the tickets. Later, you only need to print out the ticket when you're about to depart at the train station.
03.35 PM - Arrival at Tugu Yogyakarta Railway Station
Nearby the Tugu Yogyakarta Railway Station, there is a hotel named POP! Hotel Gandekan Lor. It's safer to stay at hotel which located near train station/bus station/airport. So you do not need to worry about traffic jam while you're departing.
03.45 PM - Check-in at POP! Hotel Gandekan Lor

I was looking for hotel in cheap cost, but provide debit payment. I do not have any credit account yet, so I would like to pay cash or debit. Then here I am, looking at their website and they allowed to book via debit payment. Their rate when I was try to book is 550,000 IDR/night. Further information, kindly check their website here.
05.00 PM - Playground Cafe Jogja by Tiga Tjeret

I've been visiting Playgrond Cafe in Solo, it's nice place to hang around. They serves various kind of food which is easy to find along the Jogja street foodstall, named Angkringan. Angkringan is place where you could find rice and side dish in smaller portion. Beside foods, they also provide place to hang out. Especially in Jogja, they had outdoor dining room. If you're happen to be in Jogja and won't go to Solo, worth to try!

This pine forest provides you scenic background of pines. You could just walking around the forest, or just take time to enjoy the view, wind, and sound. There is no entrance ticket, just parking fee 4,000 IDR/car and 2,000 IDR/motorcycle. The access is kinda difficult, because there are no public transportation passing through the road.
