To Batu, Malang
We planning of going to Batu, Malang from Kawah Ijen.
Anyone can advice how long it take to reach batu, malang from Kawah Ijen?
We depart after lunch from Ijen.
We plan to spend a night in Batu and then vist the apple, orange and fruit orchards. Wish to visit singgosari as well.
On the next day we are heading back to Surabaya from Batu.
Any one can advice how long it takes? And how is the journey from Batu to Surabay? I heard the Lapindo case has destroyed the tol road betweem surabaya and Malang? What is the latest condition?
Re: To Batu, Malang
It depends on how you are travelling. In a car from Kawa Ijen to Batu around 5 hours, by bus it will take longer.
From Batu to Surabaya by car around 2.5 hours, by bus longer, also depends on traffic and time of year
Travel Tips for Malang
Whenever I visit Java (and I always include Java travelling to Indonesia), I am looking forward to do the Jatim-tour (Java Timor = East Java). Meeting my family is one of the upmost nicest part of Indonesia trips ...
Mostly we start our visit in Jakarta, Pelabuhan Ratu and, travelling to the East of Java we go up for Batu - Malang. There is a lot to do, to see and to hike. Once a taxi-driver told me about the legendary Spirit-queen of the Indian Ocean. He knew a man who had stayed for 3 days and nights beneath water surface of the ocean within the Palace of the Queen ...
I asked the man if he believed the remarkable story and, he wisely responded that these kind of tellings will "keep alive the myth of the Javanese Goddess Ratu Kidul".
I love this kind of thinking ...
miss you already Batu - Malang - Jatim!
