Teachers come to Indonesia for a variety of reasons and amongst the most common is the urge to travel and experience living and working in another culture. There are several points of interest around the East Java region – the most famous of which being Mt. Bromo – a smouldering volcano within a huge volcanic crater. Exploring East Java, Bali and Lombok is easily done at the weekend. Click here to read more information about popular weekend trips.
Within your city there will be gyms, swimming pools, cinemas, badminton courts, climbing walls, golf courses and of course shopping malls. Some teachers play football or indoor football together and there is a lot of socialising between teachers across all the schools.
