Malang: The Ancient Town of East Java

The ancient town in East Java, Malang!

It was a Saturday in September. I caught the train (Bima 44) with a friend from Gubeng Station, Surabaya at 6:25 am to Malang Train station around 8 am. Just after we arrived, we walked around the town square, Alun-alun Tugu. (map)stellycious-malang_tuguIt was a beautiful day with clear sky.

One of recommended places to visit is Tugu Hotel (map). It was actually a hotel run by the successor of the rich man. The story was that he had sugar factories at the old time and marry several girls. If you are interested with some antiques collection, just come to this hotel, buy something from the restaurant, and the tour guide will show you.

After we finished the tour, we walked to Museum Malang Tempo Dulu (map). The entrance fee was 15K. It was worth the penny. It told me the history of Malang from the ancient times, the ages of Dutch and Japan colonialism, around Independence day, until now. It’s a good time spending there.

Coming to Inggil Restaurant (map) for lunch was a brilliant move, as well. It’s located beside the museum and the food was tasty. They also decorated this antique restaurant gorgeously.

Coincidentally, after we had lunch and looked for some snacks, we crossed Kampung Warna Warni, Colourful Village. It’s new and the location was still not registered on google maps when I touched the land. So it was good to find it. The entrance fee was 2K per person. (map)
