Join us exploring four regions of Java’s eastern province – Surabaya, the capital city of the province; Madura, popularly known as the Salt Island; Jember, the tobacco city; and Malang, the city with mildest climate in the region. Experience and learn a glimpse of Indonesia’s diversity: religion, culture, history, technology, and natural resources, through a two-week education safari hosted by ten major public universities in the province.

Participants will obtain a deeper understanding of East Java through cultural tours, a series of lectures, discussions, and face-to-face interactions with individuals from all backgrounds.
