So we arrived at the airport of Malang city (MLG). Previously a military airport, Abdul Rachman Saleh is now a busy airport despite its very small size without any shop nor restaurant. You really just walk from the airplane into the building, wait for your baggage to arrive on the very short, non-circular conveyor belt and leave.
We were picked up by some one from the place we were going to stay at, and go straight to Batu town.
The accommodation is called De Daunan, meaning 'leaves' in Indonesian language. It has ten cottages scattered among trees and many plants. It's very green and the design ethnic. We loved the place, the kids did too. They walked around between the green plants, played swing, and played at the common room where there are traditional games and musical instruments such as 'dakon'( a.k.a. congklak), and also board game such as othello/reversi. There is also a dart game, table tennis, books you can read on the couch or rocking chair or the day bed.
