Life in Malang


Our school is located in the foothills of Java’s central mountain ridge, which gives us a pleasant, tropical climate year round with temperatures ranging from 75 – 90°F (24-32°C), and lower humidity than coastal areas. The city of Malang has a population of nearly 1 million and is known for its universities, its good weather and its peacefulness. Malang is a very developed city with numerous western restuarants, taxis, shopping malls, and swimming pools. However, bicycle rickshaws, open markets, and beggars are routine sites. A few minutes-drive puts you into hand-tilled rice paddies and the ruins of ancient Hindu temples. Malang is located 2 hours south of an international airport (Malang does have a domestic airport which flies to Jakarta and Bali) and 2 hours north of the sparsely populated south Java coast, home to rare hornbills, nesting sea turtles and secluded white sand beaches. A 40-minute flight lands you on the beaches of Bali, a major tourist destination.
