I love Batu Malang Area, but the center Malang just a boring place for me. hard to find taxi and not much food variety to explore.
Malang is a nice not-so-big city with a nice climate. It offers a range of great food. Try rawon nguling and Cwie Mie.
2hrs travel with car from surabaya, you can go to batu malang by car or bus for lots of great place for fun
We were 2 adults and a 4 year old child and so we looked for activities for that fitted that type of family group.
Visited museum and was great with activities for children. Visited the animal market one morning. Interesting. Visited Dutch style cafe for lunch. Also very interesting. Visited the central park many times. Went to the open air food area near the railway station several times and enjoyed the food, the buskers, the friendly feel.
Many local shopping area you can explore all near with Alun-Alun Malang. Going to Batu to get many attraction (BNS, Jatim Park, Museum Angkut, Eco Green Park)
First visit to Malang. The airport is small but the city has a large industrial infustructure. Several factories are located in Malang.
Do not be fooled by the small town feel. Surprisingly there are a lot of outdoor activities to do. Visit the mountains, etc.
Malang city have many attraction area for family, good location for business and have many restaurant for many good food.
Malang is different than Batu. I stay at Batu for 3 days and can not get enough of it. I should stay at least for 4 days.
I don't know about Malang, therefore i recommend only 1 or 2 night to stay at Malang.
Nice place for pleasure with many activities with families. Have an attractive show. Nice place for culinary
Malang is a cooling place. There are few attractions such as Jatim Park 1 & 2, and Museum Angkut near by which worth visiting.
Malang is 2 to 3 hours drive from Surabaya. The weather is cold at night. You can visit Batu for back to the nature trip.
There's a lot of tourist attraction sites such as Jatim Park, Museum Angkut, or Apple Plantation. It's best visited on March to October, when the sun shines brightly. If you visit Malang in rainy season, just equipped yourself with umbrella and raincoat :)

City of Arek-arek, and very cold at night because Malang sorunding by the Mountain. and also, Malang has Chandi which the oldest in Indonesia and the name of Chandi is Chandi Singosari.
it's nice mountain with good weather and a lot of attractions. attractions is good. and i think it's better from singapore , because more place to choose.
so if you go with your children. i recommended to go to Batu
Batu is a excellent place to travel with kids, local Indonesian tourists will love it due to the fact that the weather is nice and cool.
Lot of foods, from street food up to restaurant class. Malang is growing city, lot of new commercial buildings but no additional roads so during peak hours in some area will be very crowded.
What's good about Malang is weather, foods, villa/hotel (Batu area). For those shopaholic, Malang is not suitable unless you want to do street shopping. Go to Sunday market (every Sunday, 6-10 am) near to Mall Olympic Garden, you will find lot of things to buy --- but of course at Street quality and cheap.
City with lots of old colonial buildings as well as stuffs for antique hunters. However access to the city from Surabaya is hampered by the main road which has basically no alternatives.
If an accident were to happen, a traffic jam would usually ensue.
One of the nicest cities in Java, I think. Great food, great people, great culture. Relatively clean, with plenty of attractions around the city.
Very good city, it's clean and have tons of great local cafes. The local food is absolutely nice. The first time I arrived at Malang, it's confusing but after take a time to googling and asking the local people (who's very friendly) it's really easy to understand the whole city and reach all the attractive places you wish.
The town is great for cullinary adventure as well as nature sightseeing. Visit Batu for relaxing visit to apple plantation, take a 2 to 4 hours drive to Bromo mountain or visit Taman Safari.
There are a lot of Good Hotels In Malang.. n Most Of Them is near to each other.. If you want to visit JAtim PArk.
. Pohon Inn is a good place to stay.. Pohon Inn, Batu Secret Zoo is located in one Location.. You Must Try Jagung Bakar & Roti Bakar in Batu also Bakso Bakar in Malang..
this great small city to see. nearby Batu which has more interesting spot to visit , and dont forget trip to bromo, this is mandatory
Malang has many local culinary to offer. Most people go there just for relaxing... slowing down from the daily routine and enjoy the moment and the food.
Mount Bromo is one of the most interesting place to go, to see the sun rise from the top of the mountain. Jatim Park & Batu Night Park, both are theme park that is worth to go. Go in the afternoon to Jatim Park and at night continue to the night park to see how beatiful lampions there.
Malang is a budget friendly for your stay in East Java with cool air, friendly inhabitants. Whether its for family, couples, or bussiness trip.
The cool air and fresh air surounding is very good for relaxation & cooling down from your busy daily activities. A lot of historical sites, great amusement in the morning & day, creative night amusement park, great food & restaurants, not too far from Surabaya the main city in East Java
So many attraction you could find in this city. Whether it natural or amusement park. Dinning experience is fabulous.
You can find any type of foods in this city, from traditional East Java to Western food. One of my recommendation is Bakso Bakar Cak Man. It means Cak Man's grilled meatballs. Should try it when you visit Malang. Cheap enough, only Rp. 20.000,- for 10 pcs
