Back in Singapore now…. We had such a fun and relaxing holiday last week in Malang! This time we didn’t really do much… We mainly just stayed at home, went out only to visit relatives or to go to eating places…..
We managed to go to Hawai Water Park, though. It’s a brand new attraction in Malang, just opened last month.
We went there last Tuesday. We arrived at around 2 o’clock in the afternoon.
Hello everyone, we are on a holiday in Malang, Mamae’s hometown at the moment…. For the past four days, we’ve been relaxing, having fun, and…. eating like crazy! Indonesian food is really the best…. Everytime we come to Indonesia, we’d eat out everyday….
If you go to Malang, you might want to visit Batu, a small town located around 15 km west of Malang city centre. The town lies on the slopes of a mountain, Mount Welirang, thus has beautiful views and cool mountain air.
There are a lot of things to see and do in Batu. We didn’t have enough time, though, so we only went to Museum Angkut, Pasar Apung and D’Topeng Kingdom Museum, all located in the same area.
If you go on a holiday in Malang, you really should visit Museum Malang Tempo Doeloe. It’s a small but nice museum about Malang throughout the years, from the time of the Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms to the present day.
The first few parts of the museum are about Malang at the time of Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms, when Malang was a part of a small Hindu kingdom Kanjuruhan in the sixth century, until it became a part of the vast Hindu-Buddhist empire Majapahit in late thirteenth century.
