<<Best Western Mangga Dua.>>

Hello, malaccaBoy!!

1/ Staying in BW Mangga Dua all shopping in the are will be at your doorstep. Almost across the road you`ll have Le Grandeur Hotel Mangga Dua that is interconnected ( via air passage) with ITC Mangga Dua, Pasar Pagi Mangga Dua, Mall Mangga Dua and PLza Arion.

2/ Local food???? Mall Mangga Dua has some local restos and food court. For upscale Indonesian restaurants like Bengawan Solo or Oasis you have to take a taxi and have a ride.

In addition, if you love seafood, the seafood chain (We caled it kaki-lima) across Mangga Dua is worth to try, anyway.

malaccaBoy,

SPECIAL WARNING: one of my friends recently got hepatitis B after eating exactly in kaki-lima. Their level of food hygiene/ cooking is just appalling.
