Blawan Village in East Java

In Desa Blawan, not only is there an amazing hotel, but there are also some interesting things to see and do. Here is a taste:

go for a walk into the hills behind the hotel to find views down over the coffee factory & the hotel to the village:

walk into the village and buy some labala, traditional Blawan snack. This cost Rp1000 (20c) and was absolutely delicious. it is tofu in chili, kecap manis & tomato sauce.

A fascinating and relaxing village that I highly recommend. It is quite off the beaten track but well worth it.

  1. Looks like you are having a fascinating time Cathy. The info on the sulphur mine was really interesting. I have been finding out a bit of information about miners recently. Terribly harsh conditions, extremely hard work and lousy pay. We still have such a long way to go for all the people of the world to be able to lead a half decent life.
