Booked another train ticket from Surabaya to Malang and hit the road using public transport to Batu, Paris van East Java. It took 4 hours journey (2 hours for train, 1 hour for a car from Malang Station to Landungsari Terminal, and 1 hour for Landungsari to Jatim Park 2).
Note: Get any public transport to Landungsari. From Landungsari, get the yellow car and it will bring you to Jatim Park II). Before we entered the park, we looked for a homestay there. Public transports were only available until 6 pm. That’s why we needed a room close to the park. We stayed in Griya Imafa House which was located exactly in front of the park. The guesthouse was perfect. I paid for a family room, big enough for 6 person only for 350K. It’s on the third floor and there was a balcony to see the mountain view and a back window to get a view of another mountain.
Shortly, we spent the rest of the day at the park. (Entrance fee 125K per person). The zoo was INCREDIBLY AWESOME. This is the best zoo I’ve ever visited so far!
It’s easy to find a restaurant for dinner around the guesthouse. Batu has cold weather and people love to eat hot meatballs to get warm. We, no exception. 🙂
We rested well that night. So cozy. No breakfast provided but we no worries since the restaurant was already open quite early.
Around 10 am, we caught a public car to bring us back to Landungsari. We need to reach the Malang station at 2 pm for a train back to Surabaya.
