Jodipan Tourism Village in Malang, East Java Province - Indonesia
Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park is known as the place to do some adventures and natural activities like trekking, photography, etc. It belongs to several regions, including Lumajang, Indonesia. In that area, tourists may find also a unique village called Jodipan. One thing that makes it unique is the colorful houses located beside Brantas River. The other names of the village are Warna-Warni (colorful) and Tridi Village. Due to such charm and uniqueness, tourists feel comfortable and excited when exploring the village. Not to mention they have the chance to meet the friendly villagers and try their local foods.
As mentioned before, Jodipan’s main feature is the formation of colorful houses organized neatly near to the famous Brantas River. In terms of region, the village belongs to Blimbing Sub-District and it has been visited by lots of tourists over time. In fact, it is also recognized by foreigners or those who want to have a new vacation experience. It is a good thing that Jodipan has turned out into a good and clean community. In the past, though, it was only a slum! The locals and some college students of UMM had an idea to lure visitors to that area so they decided to clean the environment and painted their houses with colorful vibrancy.
Exploring Jodipan Tourism Village
Being a tourism village, Jodipan has given a great contribution to Malang City and its surroundings regarding tourism income. Most of the visitors are people who want to take selfies in that area and do other fun things. In fact, several organizations conduct a photography competition sometimes. They are choosing the best shot made by tourists or any people who join the event. For casual visitors, they also love photography but they decide to post their pictures on their social media.
In term of location, Jodipan Tourism Village is considered strategic. Not only it resides beside Brantas River, the village is also located under a bridge. That means tourists can also watch the charm of the village from afar (from the bridge). Despite its young and attractive look, Jodipan is actually one of the oldest villages in Malang City. That means the culture remains unspoiled there, which is good news for tourists as they are able to enjoy them all when getting around the site.
Jodipan Tourism Village also has an important feature which is the Buk Gludhuk Bridge as stated above. The villagers named it Gludhuk due to the noisy sound created by passing vehicles when cutting across the bridge. On top of that, it also becomes tourists’ favorite spot to take pictures with the village as its background. For first timers, it is better to work with a tour agent who usually offers a free walking tour or other tourist packages there.
