The city is well known for its mild climate. During the period of Dutch colonization, it was a popular destination for European residents. Until now, Malang still holds its position a popular destination for international tourists.
The etymology of the name Malang is uncertain. One of the theory said that the name Malang is derived from the words Malangkuçeçwara which means "God has destroyed the false and enforced the right". The words was taken from an ancient term which mention a legendary temple called Malangkuçeçwara supposedly located near the city Malang. The word Malangkuçeçwara was applied as the motto of the city of Malang.
The history of Malang Regency could be revealed through the Dinoyo inscription at year of 760 as the primary official document to support the birth of Malang before a new inscription was discovered in 1986, which is yet to be deciphered. According to the inscription, it was concluded that the 8th century was the beginning of the existence of Malang Regency's government due to the birth of King Gajayana's ruling of his Indianized Hindu kingdom in Malang. From the Dinoyo inscriptions, it is noted that the inscription used the "Candra Sengkala" or Cronogram Calendar, and stated that the birth date of Malang Regency was on Jum'at Legi (sweet Friday) of 28 November 760.
The city was capital city of Singhasari in 1222, then transferred to Dutch colony. Malang was modernized under the Dutch; its mild climate which results from its elevation, along with its proximity to the major port of Surabaya, made it a popular destination for the Dutch and other Europeans. In 1879, Malang was connected to Java's railroad network, further increasing development and leading to increased industrialization. On 1 April 1914 Malang was designated gemeente (city).
Along with growth came urbanization. The government could not satisfy the population’s needs for affordable housing, which led to the building of shanty towns along the rivers and rail tracks. Today, the shanty towns still exist; although some have been transformed into “better” housing.

The city government continues to encourage the development of MSMEs, among them by holding various expos and festivals. In addition to MSMEs, applications and digital games were made subsectors of the application of creative economy.

There are 2,960 roads in Malang with a total length of 1,027 kilometres (638 mi). This count does not include provincial and state roads. In addition to being located at Indonesian National Route 23, which connects it to Gempol and Kepanjen, Malang is also connected to provincial roads linking regencies and cities in East Java.

On 28 May 2006, a blow-out occurred during drilling for an exploration of natural gas in Porong, Sidoarjo Regency. The blow-out initially produced 5000 m³ of mud flow per day. 18 months after the incident, the mudflow is estimated to be 80,000 m³ to 100,000 m³ per day. This ongoing mudflow has forced the closure of the Porong-Gempol toll road in East Java, which effectively cut off the transport line from Surabaya to Malang. In mid-2015, a new highway — Gempol-Pandaan Toll Road — opened for the public to ease transport from Malang to Surabaya and Pasuruan to Surabaya, vice versa.
The primary means of public transportation is by microvans (most of them are Suzuki Carry) and painted blue for legal public use. Those microvans are called Angkot both officially and casually (from Angkutan = transportation and Kota = city) but some locals prefer to call it by the name Mikrolet. They are operated privately and cheap, around IDR 4,000 each boarding, but the angkots are usually cramped. The Department of Transportation of Malang operates angkots and school buses. Both services serve both the city centre and the suburbs. There are now 25 angkot routes in the city. The school buses began operating on 29 December 2014 and there are now six school buses with six routes. Malang has a large intercity bus terminal, Arjosari, located in Blimbing, North Malang. Since 2016, transportation network companies such as GO-JEK and Uber have been operating in Malang. A protest was held by angkot and taxi drivers opposing these companies on 20 February 2017, leading GO-JEK to close its office in Malang temporarily.

According to a Brawijaya University survey, 46.2% of city residents consider congestion in the city to be severe. This congestion also eliminates the convenience of the tourists. The city government has tried to overcome it by planning the development of monorail and underpasses. However, after conducting several comparative studies, the government stated that the City of Malang is unable to build monorails and underpasses because it is very expensive.

According to research by The Clean Cities Air Partnership Program (CCAP), Malang is one of the five cities with the cleanest air in Asia. This achievement is one of the results of the community's commitment to continue to cultivate and beautify the city parks. Parks in Malang are known to be clean and have playing facilities so that Malang is considered to be a child-friendly city. The city government also created thematic parks, which helps the city to achieve the Best City Park in Indonesia award. Thematic parks can be found on the green way on Jalan Jakarta, namely the Taman Kunang-Kunang (Firefly Park).
The biggest parks in Malang are the Merdeka Square and Tugu Square (Tugu Malang Monument). Merdeka Square is located in front of the Malang Regent's Office and is the oldest square built in 1882. Not only that, Merdeka Square also provides a children playground and a fountain. Tugu Square which is located right in front of the Malang City Hall is decorated by the Tugu Malang, fountains, flowers, ponds with lotuses, typical flowers of Malang, palm trees, and plastic lamps shaped like sunflowers. Although intended for aesthetic elements, the sunflower lights were protested by the local residents because they were considered to be environmentally unfriendly and did not look good.
Some parks are the result of development from CSR funds. One of these is the Slamet Park which was built with CSR funds from PT Bentoel Prima. Bentoel's CSR fund was also used to renovate that park and Taman Trunojoyo. One of the famous parks, the Singha Merjosari Park was also renovated with CSR funds. However, the CSR funds used are funds from telecommunications companies. CSR funds from educational institutions such as the Merdeka Education Foundation that manages the Merdeka Malang University have also provided CSR to revitalize the Dieng Canal Park.
In the environmental field, Malang has won several awards including Adipura (given to the cleanest cities in Indonesia), Adiwiyata, and others. In addition, Malang is the city with the highest number of Adiwiyata schools in Indonesia, namely 173 schools from elementary to junior high schools. The Department of Environment of Malang City also received the 2017 Water Supply and Environmental Health (Air Minum dan Penyehatan Lingkungan, AMPL) award from the Head of the National Development Planning Agency. AMPL was achieved by the city because the city was able to reduce solid waste in 2016 by 15.1% and the coverage of access to waste management was 74.8%. In 2017, the city won the Wahana Tata Nugraha award because it was able to transform the slum environment into a tourist attraction such as the Jodipan Tourism Village. The many awards obtained by the city also had an impact on the increase in Regional Incentive Funds (Dana Insentif Daerah, DID) from 7.5 billion rupiahs in 2017 to 25.5 billion in 2018.
The government plays an active role in environmental conservation efforts. In achieving the Adipura Kencana, the education office held the Green School Festival (GSF) which was held annually in schools in the city. The method of implementing the GSF is considered good because it is forcing the participation of all schools. In addition, the Department of Housing and Settlements (Disperkim) also conducted a garden arrangement competition by realising the importance of green open space, and also actively built parks in the city. The city of Malang also seeks to utilise additional funds such as CSR funds to revitalise city parks.
