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.

Exploring Jodipan Tourism Village
Being a tourism village, Jodipan has given a great contribution to Malang City and its surroundings regarding tourism income.

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.
