Mount Bromo is famous for its beauty, especially the sun rise. It’s hard to resist immersing yourself in the dazzling panoramic view from higher altitudes. To enjoy the sun rise, you will need to wake up early, or even stay out all night long to ensure that you don’t have to fight for the best spot with photographers and other visitors and miss this captivating moment. The fun at Mount Bromo doesn’t end there. Visitors will be guided to Widodaren, where you can have breakfast picnic-style while taking in the breathtaking views of Mount Widodaren, and continue to Pasir Berbisik, location for one of Indonesia’s legendary movies, and then to the Teletubbies Hills, inspired by the kids tv show.

Batu City

While you’re in Malang, scoot over to Batu City. Once upon a time, this city was a resting place for the royal family because of its beautiful natural charm, cool air and fresh fruit and vegetables. Hugged by the mountains, Batu serves up good food, sights and sass, making it one of the most must-see cities to explore.
