This was our second trip with Remote Lands... On Java, our guide was excellent and we loved being the only people at Borobudur after the monument closed to the public.
Indonesia - Malang
One of the largest cities on the island of Java, Malang is home to over a million people. Malang was once the second biggest city in Java, and it was the center of government of the Kanjuruhan and Singhasari Kingdoms. When the Dutch colonized Java in the 17th century, Malang became a popular destination for the foreigners, owing to its cool climate. Traces of Western influence are apparent, including a number of early 20th century Christian churches.
