Malang in Java has been a favoured city for centuries.

During its erstwhile colonial era, its former Dutch rulers appreciated Malang for its mild highland climate.

However, today it is probably the fusion of colonial and Indonesian influenced architecture and culture that attracts visitors.

Impressive mansions line grand avenues, while the ruins of the Buddhist and Hindu temple of Singosari look back wistfully to its days as a powerful, medieval kingdom.
