I traveled to Batu quite a lot. Batu is a small town (geographically) located in East Java, Indonesia. it was a district of Malang, but decide to be independent city since 2001. it has lots of amusement park, aaaand because it located in the plateau it has all of the oxygen I ever need in my life. it always a great pleasure to visit this city… always…. I mean, oh… how could I resist the joy of clean air, beautiful scenery, and cozy hotel with a great view??? no one right… I’ve been there for vacation, took my student to the province competition, and attend the invitation of East Java provincial education departments once in a while.
Batu has lots of tourism place. it might has fewer district than malang, according to Wikipedia, Batu has 3 districts. but the tourism in Batu much more developed than Malang. it’s hard for me to count places you can visit in Batu… Trust me.. it lots of them. I haven’t visit all of them. places I visited so far were Payung, Selecta, Senggoriti, Jatim Park 1 & 2, Batu Night Spectacular, village tour around the Purnama Hotel. 😀
here some of the pictures while I was in Batu
and the best thing while visiting Malang is the Sunday market. looots … looooooots of food stalls and stuffs I love it. I did manage to inhale a cup of fruit salad, Maryam Bread, Takoyaki, and siomay. and still, I don’t wanna stop…
