What Yogyakarta is for Central Java, is Malang for East Java: the touristic centre. Well, there is not so much to do in the town itself, no kraton or silver works. But the climate is somewhat cooler than in Yogya, and there is a wide choice of accommodation and restaurants. Moreover it is easy to arrange transport or tours in East Java from Malang.
These are our pages of destinations you can explore with Malang as a base:
Blitar, with Kelud volcano, Penataran temple complex and Embultuk cave.
Kalibaru, plantation country south of the Ijen plateau.
Kawah Ijen, the crater where sulfur is harvested.
Tengger Caldera, with Bromo volcano.
Trawas and Batu, mountain resorts.
Trowulan, the former capital of Majapahit kingdom (1293–1527).
Malang is about three hours by train or car from Surabaya.
You can fly to Malang from Yogyakarta with Lion Air or Garuda.
