Hi, Has anyone recently tried to extend a 30 day VOA at the Malang Immigration Office? We are hoping to do this next week and were wondering how long the process will take? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
Anyone know how to go to and from Jatim Park 1 & 2? The hotel we're going to stay in says it can drop us off at Jatim Park, but for going back we need to find transport ourselves. How easy is it to find a taxi from there?
I with my wife arrive to Malang by air from Jakarta at the end of May 2011.
We plan to go to the village Sendang Biru and Pulau Sempu and stay there for 3-5 days.
Can we get to this village from airport? How much does it cost?
Or we weed to go to Malang first and take a transport to the village there?
Can you recommend us a hotel or a guesthouse in Sendang Biru? Do we need to book a room in advance? I couldn't find it in the web.
Is it possible to come in contact with an english-speaking local as a guide there?
Thank you very much.
I will be arriving in Batu Malang from Jogja during 20th May.
Is now the season for apple, orange ?
Our agent recommend us to stay at Kusuma agro and we saw a blog recommending Surya Indah. Both also in Batu. Which one is more worth the money?
As we only have one night in Batu. The next day after lunch we will depart to Bromo. Is Kusuma Agro too "much" for us? Shall we go for cheaper accomodation? Any good recommendation?
id we stay in Budget hostel, we can we go to visit Apple plantation? Can we enter kusuma agro just by bying their 20 000 rph ticket?
Please advice.. many thanks.
We planning of going to Batu, Malang from Kawah 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?
Which Airport should I fly to for getting to Malang ??
can anyone advise about the options available for travel within malang area and surroundings - can taxis or any form of transportation be hailed from the road side or from designated taxi stops or we have do it any other way.
our objective is to move around within the town and visit some of the interesting sights in the region.
we have three days to spend around the surabaya region. various VT posts indicate that surabaya is a huge port city and may not merit a three day stay. we have threfore considered malang/batu or probolinggo as extensions. could travelling with a baby prove challenging travelling to probo.
how much could taxi fare cost to probolinggo?
we have received some extremely useful suggestions from some members (harish e.g) but would like to cover mt bromo if possible.
all ideas welcome.
