Malang is located in the east side of Java, Indonesian.
When I travel somewhere, one of my favourite things to do is to walk around to get a true feel for a place. I like to meet people, and experience what it would be like to live there, even if for a short time. I love to explore all the smells, colours and flours around me. I’m crazy about markets, food stalls and art. Malang has a bit of everything.
Malang’s colourful villages are definitely a must.
The three villages in Malang that were revitalised used to be slums on the verge of eviction. Poor areas without any basic conditions to live in. Today they have a new face and the economy in this deprived neighbourhoods is growing and there is finally some money to support the community.
