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.

EXPERIENCES

Balekambang Beaches

Though not recommended for swimming because of dangerous surf, the area is popular because of the sand and the beautiful surroundings.

Bathing Pools

After visiting the Singosari Temple, head for the bathing pools which are located at Ken Dedes. There are beautiful statues to be found, and visitors will note that the pools were a part of the royal court. Within are ancient relics from Singosari's Hindu past, including a collection of statues, among them dwarapalas, fierce guardians from Hindu lore.

Brawijaya Military Museum

The Brawijaya Military Museum shows off the interesting history of Indonesia’s armed forces. There are items dating back to the post-World War II era, as well as the anti-communist turmoil of the 1960s and 1970s.

Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park

Declared a national park in 1982, Bromo Tengger Semeru is a series of mountains, calderas, and volcanoes – some of which, such as Mount Semeru, are still active. Trekking and hiking are popular activities here, and at the base of the volcanoes lie rice fields – both fertilized and destroyed by the periodic eruptions that wrack the area.

Colonial Walking Tour

Talk a stroll around the city and see the beautiful Dutch colonial homes, which lend the city a nostalgic flavor. Alternatively, visitors may consider using becaks or pedicabs, as a means of transportation around the city.

Mangun Dharma Art Center

The arts center hosts a wide variety of programs for traditional dance, carving, batik-making, and puppetry. Some of the dancers here have been training in the arts since they were children.

Singosari Temple

Dating back to the 1300s, Singosari Temple is a remnant from a time when the area was predominantly Hindu. Located 5-6 miles (10 kilometers) from Malang, the temple was never finished.
