Travel to Surabaya
The second largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta, this city is the metropolis for great shopping, dining and cultural experience. Known also as “the city of heroes”, Surabaya holds many historic memories particularly from the Battle of Surabaya. Today, many tourists and locals alike would empty their wallets for a great shopping escapade at the vast amount of malls in the area including Tunjungan Plaza, Galaxy Mall, Pakuwon Trade Center, and Surabaya Plaza. Those who prefer traditional markets can go to Pasar Atum, Pasar Genteng and Tanggulangin. From Surabaya, you can go to Mount Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park where you can view the most amazing sunset. Temples in Trowulan hold the secrets of Majapahit, the most celebrated ancient empire in Indonesia. A number of beaches like G-Land, Balekambang, Papuma and Watu Ulo can also be found on the northern and southern coasts of East Java with many activities available such as surfing, sailing, swimming, fishing and even horse riding. Surabaya's cuisine is just as bold as the local people, as proven by spicy rawon, curious rujak cingur and the famous ayam penyet. Do not leave this place if you haven’t been to the food streets of Surabaya. As the night approaches, you are in for some mouth-watering treat along with a youthful vibe to give you the right start for your holiday!
