One day trip to JaTim Park 2, Batu, Malang

Recently I feel my blog lost from travel topic because some friend order me to write articles related to their websites. Ya... small pay can upgrade this blog domain, hahaha. By the way, actually I should post this article some days a go or for exactly I should post it about 2 weeks a go. Ya...I'm lazy girl, whatever, but actually after I came back from my year-end vacation I suffer flue and cold about 1 week and it was made me took rest during my sickness. It is late story, I am writing it in January 19, 2013 but I will post it earlier so my blog will balance. Balance? Ya .. I did say that recently I wrote articles that not related to travel subject, so I have to make balance content. Ok... I think it's enough for the intro. 
Where did you spend your year-end vacation?
I spent my year-end vacation in East Java, in Batu, Malang and Mount Bromo. I did talk that both subject before, finally I went to these place. In this post I will talk about my vacation to Batu, Malang, East Java, Indonesia at first. My visiting to Malang was not first time, a few years a go when I was in elementary school I did visited Malang, but I visited the district of Malang. In this time I visited Batu, Malang. Do you know that there are a lot of attractions that you can visit in Batu but I only have short time and it is rainy season so almost every is rain, it is mean I can't explore all those attraction. For this opportunity I spent my vacation in Batu Secret Zoo, Eco Green Park and Batu Museum all those attraction are in Jatim Park 2 (this is my opportunity because I invited by my uncle to accompany him, so I almost not spend any money ^_^).  All this attraction cost about US$ 12 (IDR 100.000=3 attractions), you will say it is not expensive and worthy.
The guest keeper suggested me to start my adventure in Jatim Park 2 from Eco Garden because this attraction close early than other attractions. The guest keeper also told me that Jatim Park 2 has more plaything than Jatim Park 1, but Jatim Park 1 has special attraction, it is water boom. But all attraction in Jatim Park 2 is like 1 way direction, so you can cut the way as you want, I don't about Jatim Park 1 because I didn't enter it.
Eco Green Park
Although the name is Eco Green Park but you will see many death bugs and butterflies in here (insect family), but you also can't learn if those bugs life. This bugs collection are in glass house and the first attraction in Eco Green Park, the you will walking along the park that mostly consist of various birds which put in cages and some livestock animals like as cow, goat etc. And you will also learn to live with Eco life too, such as using recycle material, using green energy, make natural fertilizer, etc.

Batu Secret Zoo
I did talk about Batu Secret Zoo before and it was my reason why I want to visit this place. This place is not like common zoos that I ever visited, in here we will get fun and education too. It was raining, so crowded and I was so tired exploring Eco Green Park, so I was not really enjoy in here. We were only take short visit after find a way to exit this place. (All attraction like one way direction so we need to explore almost all attraction then we can exit). But this place is really good for kids, because I see in here the playthings are for kid.
Some animals that you saw in Eco Green Park also you can see in Batu Secret Zoo, the route of the zoo is like seeing many kind of primate (monkeys), reptile, aquatic animals, Savannah animals, etc then the play ground for kids with various playthings (I don't really remember the detail because as I said I already tired exploring the Eco Green Park).

Animal Museum
Like the name this museum is containing death animals. If you ever watched or still remember the movie The Night at The Museum then if you visiting this place you will remember this movie. Animals in Animal Batu Museum are from around the world, you saw some of alive animals in Batu Secret Zoo and you will see many kinds of death animals from around the world in this museum and it is quite complete because you won't see the polar animals like polar bear and penguin can live happily and healthy in outdoor in such tropical country like as my country.
Well... I didn't take a lot of pictures at Jatim Park 2 because it was raining two times when I was in Eco Green Park and In Animal Museum. The rain was so hard until the Eco Green Park food court could not really able to protect the visitor from the hard rain, or maybe the building design was wrong maybe the architect only thinking to protect the visitor from sun heat but not from hard rain.

I was not enjoy a lot there because of hard rain and too much crowded, ya.. it was high season because of school holiday and new year. So just waiting the queue move already make me tired and I'm sensitive type of person, there are a lot of people sweating and combining with pee from animals which spreading because of rain already make me dizzy and want to vomit, maybe I have weak stomach symptom.

Tips: You can hire motorbike if you tired exploring the area by walks, the cost around IDR 100,000-200,000 for 3 hours. But in my condition, it was so crowded so this vehicle is not worth (and I think it is quite expensive too, by the way walk can make you healthy).


  1. This is an excellent post i seen. I have to thanks to you to share it. It is really what I wanted to see hope in future you will continue for sharing such a excellent post. Bus back panel advertising in Patna is compensating for lost time the advertisement showcase rapidly by virtue of its insignificant exertion and bounteous openness. Bus commercials are unmistakable day and night.

  2. In those days I was hitched and my significant other had a better than average occupation, until he lost it around 3 months after I got a payday credit.

  3. I often get emotionally involved. Like when I read your post, I can cry, laugh, sad, funny, depending on your written words. I think you are a sensitive person.
