The diversity of a city
Here we have Malang city adventure. This city has 5 temples which are thousands years old and you can see farmers in Malang plough up the land using plough pulled by cows. But don't worry, you will not arrive in a jungle if you visit Malang. This city has also a 5 stars hotel, international fast food restaurants and much more.
Malang city with its area of more than 110.06 km² and with about 1 million people is the second largest city in East Java, Indonesia. Malang is the name of the regency and the city as well. Let me tell you about the city of Malang.
This city is famous for its cool air. It is good for growing different vegetables and fruits like apples and strawberries. Apples from Malang is known well in Indonesia. Many home industries in Malang and its neighborhood use apples as a basic material for different products as juice, jam, snack, etc.
The eye catchers of Malang city for me are:
For the ones who like fish, turtles, and other animals, the animals market is for you. It is located beside the flower market. Cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, iguanas, snakes, even monkeys are available there. Even if you don’t plan to buy any animals, it is an interesting place to visit.
The city hall is on jalan (street) Tugu. The name is referred to a monument that is located in front of the building. Like most old buildings in Malang, this building has also Dutch architect and the monument is surrounded by a big and nice water lelies pond. At this location you also have the only 5 stars hotel in Malang, Hotel Tugu.
Lucky me that not all Malang people like fast food. Lots of them also love and enjoy having the food "slowly". That's why Malang also have many restaurants both Javanese/local food and western food. If you want more traditional food and snacks you can go to Sunday Market in jalan Semeru.
Malang city has shopping centers or like we call them here malls. The well known malls in Malang are Matos (Malang Town Square) and MOG (Malang Olympic Garden). They are not very big but you can find items of daily needs here. Do you know the advantage of having small malls in the city? Right! You can keep more money in your wallet :)
I even saw this....
No........not from the window of Mc Donald.... It was near a housing complex in Malang. It reminds me to a story I read when I was a child. I didn't expect to see it live in this time. Apparently it is possible in Malang.
