Contoh recount text:

Some friends and I went to Yogyakarta for a vacation.

We had our vacation soon after the school exam was over. We chose to go to Yogyakarta because we thought that the place was nice and the people were friendly. In addition, some friends told me that it had a lot of places of interests.
We left for Yogyakarta early in the morning, and we took Pramex train that departed at 08:00. We got off in the Tugu railway station, and headed to Malioboro for some foods and drinks. After we had a walk around the place for minutes, we took a taxi and headed to the beach. It was Parangtritis beach wich is well known for everybody for its legend of Roro Kidul. We played with water and enjoyed the beauty of the waves reaching the seashore. We stayed there for a day before finally we decided to be back to Malioboro.

We were very happy to spend a day playing with water and enjoy the natural beauty of the beach. We left Malioboro at a quarter to four and went back home by Pramex train that departed at 04:00
