    APPLES!

    apples-batu-eastjava

    Yes, apples are grown in this part of Java and, to be more precise, they grown in the mountain region of Batu and Malang. Examine to the roadside markets which sell particularly good green, a bit sour apples (the Males Sylvestris).

    It's told the first apple tree sprouted decades ago when a Dutchman with a green thumb tried to grow this 4-season plant in a wholly different climate and on different soil too. Situated on a level of 700-800 meter above sea surface, the first trees were doing surprisingly well despite the tropical climate. There was a large difference though between the European apple and its Malang grown sister, which became all too apparent when the first fruits were reaped.

    Found an apple, found an apple,
    Found it growing on a tree.
    Now I'll pick it and I'll share it,
    Half for you and half for me.

    Waterfall COBAN RONDO - Songgorito

    waterfall-cuban-rondo-batu

    About 3 km West of Batu is the excellent holiday resort Songgorito. Here you'll find the well-known hot springs. The road mounts the Gunung Panderman and is notorious for its hairpin bends. Find the small well-covered cleft with lusty vegetation where you can enjoy some breath-taking views. Have a picnic and go for a hike up to the 60 metres high Waterfall Cuban Rondo. It's wonderfully cool!

    batu-plaza-shop-eastjava

    Visiting the center of Batu you'll notice it is not that crowded and, Batu is not that built up. Around the town square life is quiet, easy-going and sometimes even very cold, especially June to November. The air still very clear this area used to be a healthy place for lung-patients ...

    Take an easy walk to Batu Plaza, the local all-in-one mall. You will be surprised what you can get there ...

    market-batu-eastjava

    Batu is famous for its delicious fruit and vegetables, especially apples, citrus, onions, potatoes, and cabbage. In the center of Batu is near the "alun-alun" a lively "Pasar Malam" (Night Market) though, enjoy the market in the day-time next to the mini-bus terminal. You can buy fruit and vegetables, and the locals selling from dried fish to soldering irons, too. A quiet, cozy shopping time.

    cathedral-malang-eastjava

    Malang is one of Java's finest and most attractive hill towns. The provincial city of Malang is located in the mountains on the banks of the river Brantas. It was established in the late 18th. century as a coffee-growing center. In more recent years, local farmers have been growing tobacco, famous for its clove cigarettes (Kretek).

    Malang is a cool, clean place with a well planned square and the central area of town is tudded with parks, tree-lined streets and odd Dutch architecture. The white Catholic Cathedral (Gereja Katolik) righ in the center around the "alun-alun", where it's always crowded with people, got a favourite view for Dutch colonials ...
